Thats right I am getting desperate here. Its been 7 years since Pharoahe Monch released Internal Affairs.

Monch started in '92 as half of Organized Konfusion. He dropped debatably 2 of the best hip hop albums of the early 90's (Self Titled Debut & Stress: The Extinction Agenda). After three great albums with the group Organized Konfusion, the underground legend with impeccable delivery and skill, brokered a solo deal with Rawkus.

Rawkus released Internal Affairs in late '99. Monch hasn't been heard from since. Story goes that after releasing Internal Affairs, label politics slowed down his career. Rawkus signed a distribution deal with MCA and later, the label was absorbed into Geffen. Monch recorded an album for Geffen but the recording was never released as the rapper attempted to free himself of the Geffen deal.

Somewhere in here he releases the anti-Bush track Agent Orange with one a hell of a couple lines in it ("Pissed on the motherf**king White House lawn. I threw a rock and I ran...Its not a Game Boy about the PlayStation. Its +Resident Evil+ when every President's a mason." Eat your heart out Neil Young). Anyways if you have any information on what this legendary underground MC is up to let me know (in the comments of course). The latest is there is talk about an album called Desire to be released on a new label.

Monch had this to say in Febuary 2006.

On a creative and business level, I've never been this excited. I've had the time to work on this album, and being a perfectionist, it's really come to fruition. It's very soulful, very gospel, a fresh, new sound for me. It shows so much growth spiritually, almost as if I'm a new artist. When I play the record for people, that's how they hear it.
I am totally confused. But given this was released in Febuary of this year there is still hope that an album is on the way (I won't hold my breath until a single emerges which supposedly will be called Push)??. Anyways, head over to Cocaine Blunts and see what Noz is saying because he knows his stuff better than I. Check out his live Monch concert review and another "Monch come back plea."

I actually got to talk to him for a few after a show in dc this past nov. It was crazy, he was just standing on the street outside the club and no one came up to him, I did, took a picture, asked him about an ablum and he said that 2006 he def would drop and had some tracks with Kanye done. The thing that pissed me off is while Talib, Mos Def had drivers take them away from the club, Monch had to hail a cab.

Nice. Good lookin' out on this. Organized was so fresh. Few hip-hop albums in the 90s were better than "Stress."

one of my favourite rapper of all time, him and prince poetry's work never fail to amuse... a good track Monch recently features on is 'The X' by the X-Ecutioners feat. Xzibit, Skillz and Inspektah Deck, some good stuff... But i have to say the Simon Says Remix takes the cake, an explosive track...
