I notice that there is not a lot of disscussion about Pharoahe Monch on this forum and I was just wondering where you guys would place him among your favorite mcs.

Like for me he is definitly in my all time top ten mcs and my top five of the past few years.

Top 5 all time.

Top 5-10 lyrically all time as well.

Amazing consistency/discog, amazing lyricist, etc. Pharoahe is incredible.

PTSD sounds like it’s going to be an instant classic. Monch is definitely one of my favorites. Not a single weak album in his discography in my opinion. Still waiting for him to collab with MF DOOM though.

@ScopeY: Last I heard, the official word was “sometime this year”.
