July 27th 2023: Lieutenant Gaviston speaks of a recon mission in Kabul, Afghanistan where he discovers classified information that changes EVERYTHING that he believes about this W.A.R. This information is uploaded and transmitted through time. If you eventually hear this; you have been ordained or genetically pre-exposed to have received this information. What you will eventually hear is a WARNING.

These words are powerfully delivered by Idris Elba to set a tone for Pharoahe Monch’s upcoming album “W.A.R. (We Are Renegades)”. The material presented is a consistent message from start to finish with new epiphanies exposed after various sets of songs. The order of music helps the listener see the vivid stories that Pharoahe is painting through the use of his lyrics.

The production compliments Monch’s delivery and takes on a genuine art form that could easily stand on its own. Live instruments resonate at the start and end of certain tracks, such as his title song W.A.R. featuring Immortal Technique & Vernon Reid. Producers Exile, Marco Polo, M-Phazes, Fatin, Diamond D, Mike Loe, Samiyam, Adam Deitch, Eric Krasno & Pharoahe Monch himself help shape the album into what will be Monch’s greatest work to date.

Pharoahe Monch’s vision for the album is supported with guest features that provide an eclectic mix of sounds. Fans can look forward to material with Jill Scott, Styles P, Phonte of Little Brother, Jean Grae, Royce Da 5’9,” Idris Elba, Immortal Technique, Citizen Cope, Dr. Cornel West (professor from Princeton) & Vernon Reid (guitarist & band-leader for metal group, Living Colour – named #66 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time). Production by Exile, M-Phazes, Marco Polo, Diamond D, Mike Low, Samiyam, Fatin, Lee Stone as well as Pharoahe Monch himself.
