The long awaited release of Pharoahe Monch’s project, W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) is set to be available for voracious consumption on March 22nd. The first visual from the project was a short film for the single “Clap”, which released just yesterday already has well over 23,000 views.
This video brought back quite a few unpleasant memories of my past in where a dear friend of mine’s family was a victim of human error involving police. Shot in Bedford Stuyvesant, the film takes us on a police bust gone wrong and displays the impact of that mistake, where the community takes some control of a tragic situation. Enjoy and on March 22nd cop the album you can preorder it here.
