Talk about dopeness. That was just the preface to what I would call an important contribution to the perception of us people, blessed with melanin. I’m just saying, though.

The Album: W.A.R. (We are renegades)

Artist: Pharoahe Monch

We Are Renegades

What makes this album so great? It’s a testament to rebuking authority. It is a testament to higher ground. It is a testament to breaking stereotypes. It is a testament to the ability of hip hop as a medium that participates and invokes constructive meaningful dialogue. It is a testament to growth.

The man has something to say. He has something to portray. I am deliberately veering away from the specifics, because I believe that the project speaks for itself.
