Looking Down The Barrel of a Gun: Pharoahe Monch - "Damage" (PTSD sampler)
Pharoahe Monch, the guy behind "Simon Says," has unofficially announced the sheer existence of a new album; "Damage" is the first released track from his upcoming project, dubbed PTSD. It's actually just a quick sample/teaser of the full track, which will be released on Thursday, Sept. 27th. "Damage" is the final piece in a 3-part series of tracks that're being told from the perspective of a bullet. Pharoahe Monch has slowly issued parts 1-2 over the past 18+ years, "Stray Bullet" and "When The Gun Draws" ... articulately played out on Stress: The Extinction Agenda (1994) with his old band, Organized Konfusion and his second album, Desire. Since Monch has always managed to remain a pretty [socially] "conscious rapper," I wouldn't be too surprised if PTSD was liberated just in time to co-align with the all-important Nov. 2012 Presidential Election! Briefly taking to Twitter, he manged to adequately describe his forthcoming project as, "a (MD) Multi-Media Deployment and is the follow-up to W.A.R."
