Pharoahe Monch, My-G and Luck-One

Pharoahe Monch has always found critical success. Ever since the Queens emcee joined forces with partner Prince Po to create Organized Konfusion, through his latest solo effort, W.A.R. (We Are Renegades), Monch has left music critics scrambling for superlatives to describe his dizzying flow and thematic complexities. Failure to cross over into the mainstream is partially due to the lackluster promotional pull afforded to him, as well as Monch's refusal to dilute his dense multi-layered content. Too often, artistic trailblazers are only given their due after they're no longer around, when the public has had time to catch up to what they were putting down. Tonight is a chance to buck that trend and see a master at the top of his game. Opener Luck-One is similarly gifted—with his own brand of lyrical dexterity, sagacious subject matter, and a punishing live show. RYAN FEIGH
