PHAROAHE MONCH Get the fuck up

Simon says “Get the fuck up”! Grammy Award winning New York MC Pharoahe Monch returns this September for a tour set to take in three (3!) WA dates: Thursday, September 21 at Mojos; Friday, September 22 at the Rosemount Hotel; and Sunday, September 24 at Wave Rock Weekender.

Returning for the first time since 2014, Monch is well known for his technical prowess and complex delivery. He will be joined at all shows by faithful DJ Boogie Blind and irreverent hypeman Cam.

Widely regarded as one of the best lyrical MCs in the game, Pharoahe Monch’s creative motivation and output is consistent even after 20 years on the scene. Praised by the likes of Eminem for always being ahead of his time, his 1998 highly touted solo debut, Internal Affairs, crafted one of the greatest underground hip hop albums ever. Its crowd moving hit Simon Says propelled Monch to international success.

He’s since released four studio albums and collaborated with the likes of Mos Def, Nate Dogg, Talib Kweli, Jill Scott, Justin Timberlake, Aussie hip-hop royalty Hilltop Hoods as well as Australian producer powerhouse M-Phases, just to name a few.

Pharoahe will perform party starters Simon Says, Push and Welcome to the Terradome as well as tracks from his extensive catalogue, including his most recent album, 2014’s PTSD: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Pharoahe Monch plays Thursday, September 21 at Mojos; Friday, September 22 at the Rosemount Hotel; and Sunday, September 24 at Wave Rock Weekender.
