Undoubtedly, one of the greatest hip hop albums from the 1990s was ‘Internal Affairs’ by NYC emcee Pharoahe Monche, released 20 years ago on Rawkus Records. Not only did the fifteen track album feature the original and remix of ‘Simon Says’, but smooth and soulful jams ‘The Light‘ and ‘The Truth‘ (featuring Common & Talib Kweli). The ferocious, criminally slept on ‘No Mercy‘, featuring MOP also appeared on Internal Affairs, as did the jazzy and laid back head nodder ‘Queens‘ and dark and lyrical banger ‘Hell‘ featuring Canibus.
“Pharoahe is incredible, and has always been ahead of his time since he came out.” Eminem
Alongside fellow New Yorker Jeru The Damaja, Pharoahe will celebrating 20 years since ‘Internal Affairs’ with a one-off anniversary show at Electric Brixton in South London. Tickets are selling fast so don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity!
