Pharoahe Monch - Simon Says From his album, Internal Affairs (1999)
This was the first Pharoahe Monch song I ever heard. It was the only one I ever needed to hear.
I was a little young for Organized Konfusion, but this song dropped when I was 10 or 11 years old. At the time, it was just Rap to me - but later, I would grow to understand and appreciate it as some of the first “underground” Hip Hop I experienced. Pharoahe is no joke.
"Y’all know the name, Pharoahe fuckin’ Monch, ain’t a damn thing changed!"
