I bet you would have never guessed that Pharaohe Monch got his name from a bad haircut, but he most certainly did. The Jamaica Queens native has been in the game since 1997 and is well known for his lyrical style and delivery. Arguably his biggest hit is Simon Says, and that one joint is a classic in everyone's book. Recently he has been a judge on The Ultimate MC and also released his album P.T.S.D.. His music has become timeless in the underground circuit while keeping his name in the limelight with guest features and big records over the years. The almighty Pharoahe will be at A3C this year! Will you?
