Pharoahe Monch’s Pharmacy Freestyle Shows Why He’s One Of Dr. Dre’s Favorite MCs (Audio)
Pharoahe Monch and Dr. Dre have never released music together. The Organized Konfusion MC and the N.W.A. producer nearly aligned when Monch was reportedly courted by Eminem and Shady Records, which would have placed the Rawkus hit-maker in the Shady-Aftermath-G-Unit umbrella. That did not happen. But like Dre, the Queens, New York veteran has pushed on, making great music regardless of what label he was signed to.
The W.A.R. Media co-founder is the latest guest on Dre’s The Pharmacy show on Beats1 Radio. On a beat seemingly tailor-made for the MC-singer double threat, Monch’s flow gets to work. The lyricist uses speed, cadence, and compound rhymes to go places with the freestyle that others would easily trip over. After the dazzling display, Dre announces that P. Monch is one of his favorite MCs. Heads can certainly hear why. All of this comes just one week after Pete Rock and Kurupt were the Pharmacy guests.
Think these two vets will ever get that studio work in?
