Remember back in the day when rap lyrics had substance and reflected the real struggles hip-hop artists went through as humans? Amidst a plethora of shallow hits regarding designer clothes and heavy weed smoke, Pharoahe Monch provides a gasping breath of fresh air, and his newest, "Get Down" is no different. Monch displays the traits of a true artist with "Get Down," marrying a soul-grabbing beat with his powerful lyrics about where he's come from and where he's going. Monch's skill with a pen is more like that of early hip-hop, and he knows "the master flow jurassic." According to "Get Down," "the game is diseased and poisoned, but please understand Pharoahe is the vaccine," and this is his time to shine. I'm ready to line up for my shot and bask in the light. That's just what Pharoahe does.
