Rapper Pharaohe Monch’s third studio album W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) is set for release on the 14th of September. According to Monch, the album will feature guest appearances from Styles P, Talib Kweli, Black Thought (of The Roots), Vernon Reid (of Living Colour), Prince Po (other half of Organized Konfusion), Cee-Lo Green, Jean Grae, Phonte (of Little Brother) and other artists. The album will also feature production from Pharoahe Monch, Mr. Porter, Black Milk, Nottz, Exile, M-Phases, Fatin, Marco Polo, Samiyam, Mike Low and Lee Stone.

There is no tracklist available just yet but the following tracks are certain to be on the album…

  • “Shine” (feat. Mela Machinko) (Produced by Diamond D)
  • “Mamma’s Boy” (Produced by Lee Stone)
  • “5 On The Black Hand Side” (feat. Styles P & Phonte) (Produced by Mr. Porter)
  • “W.A.R.” (feat. Vernon Reid of Living Color) (Produced by Marco Polo)

To me the list with names of producers/artists which Mr. Monch collaborates with on this release is impressive enough….but it’s tracks like Shine that will have me visit the record store.
