Thread: Pharoahe Monch is one of THE most underrated rappers

  1. #1

    Default Pharoahe Monch is one of THE most underrated rappers

    I mean, a lot of people only know him from his solo work, but if you ask me, his best stuff was with Organized Konfusion. His performance on those three albums is better than most peoples carrers. The guys got a fucking amazing flow, which never becomes monotonous or so so, but he has this unbelievable abillty to switch up his flow almost effortlessly, his delivery is second to none, and his breath control? Outstanding.

    Lyrically hes dope, nothing outstanding, but dope. Its just the skills he uses in transcribing those lyrics to us is second to none.

    His solo carrer has being kind of dissapointing though. 'Internal Affairs' is almost classic, i love that album, but then we had to wait YEARS for the follow up, which to me was a bit of a dissapointment. Thats his failure- lack of material

    But hes a fantastic rapper, and one of the most underrated in my opinion.
    Anyone agree?

    For those who havent heard his verse on 'Bring It On':

    "Mind chip
    I even be gettin more graphic than an Neo Geo".....................

    Theres no point even writing that verse, it needs to be heard to be believed. Two words, simply amazing. Flow, delivery, breath control, lyrics, everything, fantastic

    I don't think he's underated at all, nearly everyone I know recognises his skills, even casual hip hop fans.

    Casual hip-hop fans i know, have never even heard of him, and only some actually have any of his material. Even fewer have heard of OK

    I'm the poetical poltergeist I heist tracks from the past
    And return 'em to the present time in rhyme form
    What was once dead is now resurrected on the record
    And the physical words are mere residuals for my bidding
    For my disposal to dispose of... who are you kidding
    Nightfall, I stuff the rook, then I'm looking for
    the original book which contains the words of God
    Six hours until dawn, my quest to capture the queen
    without being seen by the pawns
    Call me Bishop, bishop takes rook, rook takes pawn
    pawn takes knight, knight takes queen
    Queen takes the original King James virgin (check)
    I'm surgin up when I'm emergin
    False clergymen you're urgin me to call you a virgin
    when to say the least
    Who can you trust when a priest is now the beast?
    (who? what? why? and when?)
    I'm the assassinator of rap
    Hit rip rhyme rap ritual hit you with my best shot
    Get you sit you down, let you know I never get dropped
    When I flip-flop hip-hop, when I wreck shop (nigga)
    I move, with the finesse and the smoothness
    Even inside of the grooves of a record, check it
    Check it again, check it again, check it again
    Check the metaphors, make sure they're making sense and then
    Gimme one-hundred percent credit
    Let it, medi-tate, in your brain, like a seda-tive
    I said it and I bet it dwelve in your bloodstream.... let it live
    The verses of curses that burst in the face of the first time offenders
    In the realm of the extinction agenda

    Word up, Durag. I still feel Pharoahe these days, but I agree he was on another level when he was in O.K. I decided to post Bring it On for those that have still yet to check for Organized, or those that just wanna hear a classic track that was ahead of its time.

    Hell yeah he's underrated. He's one of my favorite MC's and I have yet to meet a casual hip-hop listener who knows who OK or Pharoahe Monch is. I don't think I've ever been disappointed by him yet lyrically. I do agree that he was better in his OK days. His solo work is still worth checking out though.


    So many bodies on my microphone the shit's haunted

    Casual Hip Hop fans I know don't even know about his existence, anyway I think that everyone who listens hip hop deeper knows about Monch's skills. More underrated rapper is The Last Emperor i think.

    In America, Monch is mad slept on. It's a shame because he's always been one of the dopest. Sure when he had tracks like "Get The Fuck Up" or whatever, people RECOGNIZED.. but 75% of normal rap fans don't know half of this dude's lyrical prowless on other tracks.

    If you don't realize that Monch has one of the best deliveries in Hip-Hop's entire History.. you a fuck up. Plus add his lyrics? This nigga's ten times above average.

    he's elite never put him in above average I've never been disappointed by his lyrical ability his flow on songs like "Mayor" to "Simon Says" to his collabo with Mos Def & Nate Dogg on "Oh No" to his newer stuff and "Agent Orange" (the itunes bonus track" even on "Book of Judges" his lyrics got from poetic to super lyrical his flow is so advance and delivery his so sick that he could be the only rapper to keep up lyrically with Canibus, Priest & Ras Kass.
