Pharoahe Monch Interviewed on the Sound of Young America.

TSOYA stays winning. Jesse Thorn interviewed the Mo-eezy-8 on the Sound of Young America yesterday and the resulting interview is fascinating. I’m throwing up this picture just ‘cause it’s Pharoahe dressed like Elvis. Monch evokes some really interesting comparison between jazz soloing and his own phrasing and intonation.

The show’s recent Brother Ali interview is worth checking out too, Ali is really eloquent. Hip-hop journalism is not dead, people!
