Where Are They Now?: The Shining Stars of Rawkus Records [PHOTOS]
First at bat is Pharoahe Monch, a South Jamaica, Queens MC known for his lyrical prowess, prolific rhymes and multisyllabic flow. While Monch only released the critically acclaimed Internal Affairs under the Rawkus imprint, that very same album just so happened to produce “Simon Says.” Unfortunately, its Godzilla samples has made finding a legit copy of the album pricey. Since leaving Rawkus, Phaoroahe Monch has slow-cooked two more quality projects, the most recent being the damn good W.A.R. (We Are Renegades), which produced “Black Hand Side” featuring Styles P. and Phonte.
