PHAROAHE MONCH: Lost In Translation [ALBUM STREAM + DOWNLOAD]

Lost-in-Translation-Pharoahe-Monch

Did you know Pharoahe Monch just dropped an album, “Lost In Translation,” available for ‘name your price‘ on his Bandcamp page? I didn’t. Apparently, it is his Valentine’s Day gift to us all, released on Feb 14th and is much appreciated! (Thanks Pharoahe, we didn’t know you cared!)

The project is a retrospective collection of  previously released songs and features from 2000 to 2015, but it does include one new song “Home (HGH)” featuring Phonte’ and Tamisha. “Lost In Translation” is no joke, also featuring Jill Scott, Justin Timberlake, Will.I.Am, Mela Machinko, jazz great Robert Glasper and more!

The theme of the collection is “Love” of course, hence the Valentine’s Day release date (kinda like MCMI’s “Love Is” mixtape, shameless self-plug). Stream “Lost In Translation” or download it for anything you want to contribute (drop some $, don’t be a moocher! lol). Remember, support the artists whose music you dig, or else don’t complain about what you hear on the radio.

PHAROAHE MONCH: Lost In Translation

President Obama fells Trump, Birthers & Osama Bin Laden in the same weekend

President Barack Obama

Whether or not you feel like he has been doing a great job before this week, you have to admit, President Obama is on a roll, since Wednesday April 25th.

TIMELINE:

WednesdayPresident Obama releases long form birth certificate, silencing birthers in general and Donald Trump as his most recent detractor.

“We do not have time for this kind of silliness,” he said. “We’ve got better stuff to do. I’ve got better stuff to do.”

But it was not “silliness”, was it? It was something more sinister. No President has ever been so scrutinized. Remember, Obama had already given a copy of his birth certificate – which Hawaiian authorities confirmed and verified was real and acurate – to prove his citizenship in 2008 in order to run for President. So, anyone who questioned that was basically calling him a liar. Many feel it was because he was black. Even Obama was troubled by it, saying

“I have to say that over the last 2½ years, I have watched with bemusement. I have been puzzled at the degree to which this thing just kept on going.”

Political scientist Thomas Whalen was quoted in the NationalPost saying, it was a

“humiliating day for the country.. It’s sad. We are in the 21st century, and this is something out of the Salem witch trials.” … “There is a devout segment of the population that refuses to accept a black man as commander in chief. They will grope for anything that might back up their argument.”
