Pharoahe Monch‘s collabo with Black Thought of The Roots –“Rapid Eye Movement”–has leaked online in advance of Monch’s much-anticipated album PTSD. Not gonna waste too much digital ink on this one cause the title kinda says it all. And by ‘it all’ I mean that it says: hide your kiiiiiiids…! Listen to the Marco Polo-produced banger below and read our exclusive Okayplayer Interview with Pharoahe Monch here, covering the state of hip-hop and the state of his own mental health (true story) from a gun’s-eye point of view.
