Expectations for P.T.S.D?
Pharoahe Monch is one of my favorite rappers and has delivered again and again with classics such as Internal Affairs and Stress: The Extinction Agendaas.
In PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), Pharoahe Monch continues the story he began telling in his previous LP, W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) (2011) — his third studio album and first independent release. The Queens emcee narrates, in both literal and metaphoric ways, about the trials and tribulations of an independent artist who is at war with the music industry and the struggle of the black male experience in America. In 2012, during an interview with Shawn Setaro, Editor-in-Chief of Rap Genius, the rapper explained the connections between the two projects, beyond their titles. “The W.A.R. album was like, I’m going to battle against the machine, I’m doing this independently. I’m putting some things out that I learned and I’m going to expose about the music industry. PTSD is the result of me doing that, where I am emotionally now. It’s similar to how someone comes back, from war and is stricken by re-adjusting to a regular situation.”
Monch told MTV Hive that PTSD is “more mental, emotional and personal” because it came out of the depths of a depression he had. He also gave the internal and external factors that helped him create the album. “I was working on the title track, which took me to a point in between Internal Affairs and Desire, where I was heavily depressed. Through the waiting period, the industry period, and going through a lot emotionally. Then there was the physical [problem] with the asthma. It was the worst. So I started off with that title track and my manager was like, ‘Yo, let’s really dive into that state and how you got to where you are now, and how this follows what people go through to get back to a so-called 'normal’ situation'.”
Scientifically speaking, ‘PTSD’ is a severe anxiety disorder that can develop after exposure to any event that results in psychological trauma. This conceptual album follows a veteran through combat experience, his return home, relationship dissolution, drug addiction, painful depression, and, finally, a triumphant but realistically rendered decision to keep living and struggling.
The Lee Stone-produced song is the final piece to Pharoahe’s “bullet” trilogy in which he anthropomorphizes a slug fired with the intent to annihilate, and tackles the issue of gun violence. The song and its cover art provide a chilling reminder that bullets have no name.
The bullet, in this chapter, is portrayed as psychotic and merrily lethal, something that gave the rapper pause for thought when the real-life shooting incident in Aurora, Colorado which occurred at The Dark Knight Rises theater made his song have a little more resonance than he intended. “The song was [penned] way before that incident, which kind of threw me for a loop,” Pharoahe Monch told Rap Genius. Bad MF is his latest single:
Scheduled to be released April 15.
