Pharoahe Monch to Drop ‘W.A.R.’ on Duck Down, to Tour with Slaughterhouse in April
Pharoahe Monch has announced that his long-awaited solo album We Are Renegades (W.A.R.) will be released in the Summer of 2010 via Buckshot and Dru Ha’s Duck Down imprint. In addition, Monch will take part in a Canadian tour with Slaughterhouse throughout the month of April.
The announcement comes on the heels of Duck Down’s 15-year anniversary celebration and their SXSW showcase in Austin last week. The Organized Konfusion MC has let loose a few details about the release, including a guest appearance roster featuring Black Thought, Phonte and Jean Grae. In addition, production will be handled the likes of Exile, Marco Polo and frequent Emilio Rojas collaborator M-Phazes.
Renegades will mark Monch’s third solo release — the follow-up this his critically acclaimed sophomore LP Desire and his 1999 debut, Internal Affairs, released via Rawkus Records.
