Pharoahe Monch drops the second video from his third solo album W.A.R. (We Are Renegades). In the clip he imagines a world where we turn the other cheek and let it slide instead of getting caught up in the b.s. Monch told TheUrbandaily.com in our exclusive making of W.A.R. that this song was refreshing to him for a variety of reasons.
“But after all the rappity-rap sh*t I gave you in the beginning of the album I wanted the listener to say “ahh, water.” [laughs]. At some point I need a break. It’s not even about the consumer. I literally take a deep breath on Black Hand Side. The strings do that for me, the tempo, the content and the singing.”
