Pharoahe Monch x Brixton Jamm

Simon says get the… you know the rest. Queens native Pharoahe Monch brought his lyrical prowess and infectious stage presents to the intimate Brixton Jamm venue. Pre-Pharoahe, rapper Kingpin got the crowd more than warm, spitting effortlessly over an array of hard hitting instrumentals. The Lyrically conscious rapper formed a special relationship with the crowd; catching the attention of many unfamiliar with his work.

Alongside DJ Boogie Blind, Pharoahe took the crowd on a journey of sound, ranging from the mellow vibes of “Still Standing” ft Jill Scott to the forever hype “Simon Says”, which remains Pharoahe’s biggest hit to date. On a personal note, it was great to hear “Queens” from the underrated Internal Affairs album and classic features verses such as “My Life” with Styles P and “Oh No” with Mos Def and the late Nate Dogg.
