Both Monch and Rawkus seemed to want to push their music farther above ground, and some longtime followers were shocked to hear a harder, angrier, more profane Monch, who seemed to be courting a more thugged-out audience.

If we’re just talking about pure rapping ability, there are only a small handful of people I can think of that can compete with Pharoahe Monch.

I had never heard any of Pharoahe Monch's music before listening to this so I really had no idea what to expect. Wow was I blown away by how good this was. Amazing lyrically and amazing beats on this album. It has really high ratings for a reason. Very good album by Pharoahe Monch.
