  • Pharoahe Monch on Shady/Aftermath?!?!

    About a week ago, I got an email from a news mailing list that I subscribe to, with a story in the rumours section that Pharaohe had signed to Shady/Aftermath, and that they were waiting for the right time to announce it. I didn't post anything coz I had no idea about the accuracy of the news (though this mailing list does occasionally have a nugget of news a few days before every one else).

    Then I picked this up on www.mightypharoahe.com:

    "Pharoahe, Eminem and 50 Cent?

    I've heard from many reputable sources that recently Pharoahe Monch has gone to California to record a "single" with Eminem and 50 Cent - along with this, I also heard that Dre and Eminem flew out to meet Pharoahe as they urgently wanted to sign him to Aftermath after they heard his contract with Rawkus had ended. Is Aftermath trying to take over the rap game entirely? After all, these could be rumours, we'll keep you posted as soon as we recieve more information."

    The update was careful to point out they were only rumours, but this is enough for me to officially get excited about. Pharoahe is the illest in the game right now. His album's been delayed forever, and now there's the possibility of a Dre-produced one!

    that doesn't sound like good news...if he does sign i hope dre doesn't try to change him like rakim...and if he did sign, i would hope he didn't get too many dre tracks...dre's tracks are good, but don't work with every single person...

      Pharoahe is definitely one of my favortie rappers. I was pissed when I heard Rawkus had shut down, primarily because it meant more delays with Monch's album. Hopefully he signs somewhere and puts that shit out soon.

      There have been way too many rumors about people signing to Shady/Aftermath recently, though. I think 98% of rappers will soon be on Shady/Aftermath if all the rumors are true.
      Oh its true, its true

        I'm hoping that Dre doesnt try and change Pharoahe as well...I'm not sure what goes on at Aftermath, because there isn't really a whole lot of productivity in terms of albums, and when Rakim left, it was difficult to find a coherent reason behind him leaving.

        As for Pharoahe on Dre tracks...I'm not too concerned about a suitability problem because Pharoahe, being in the game for as long as he has been, knows what he's doing in a studio. For me, he's yet to release weak material, either lyrically or beat-wise. Both of those things tell me he knows what sounds good.

        It'll do great things for his profile (even if this turns out to be untrue)...it's mind-boggling how slept-on Pharoahe Monch is.

          I know the person who owns mightypharoahe.com and he talks to Pharoahe Monch's producers and Prince Poetry's people too, and he has heard the news from them. Sounds like it could go down.

              I think Pharoahe Monch is definitely one of the tightest, deepest lyricists out there right now. HOWEVER, i think he would be better suited on a label that isn't under the control of Jimmy Iovine. He fucked every hip-hop fan over by telling Rakim to record more songs with "marketable choruses," which in turn led to Rakim leaving. I can't even imagine how bad he would scrutinize Pharoahe Monch's album.
              However, if Shady/Aftermath DOES (and this is a big DOES) get Pharoahe, his new album would definitely be a breakout hit, depending on what year Dre would release it!! Haha

                Pharoah does not belong on Shady/Aftermath. It sounds odd but the typical beats that Dre and Em put out would not suit his style at all. The whole image and shit of the label just doesn;t really fir to his style. It's such shit that awkus is done for, they put out so much hot shit frequently, not like Shady Aftermath.

                  Pharoahe = 1 Of the most under-rated rappers in the game.

                      Uhhh wrong? Dre didn't try and change rakim. Dre wanted rakim to be like he always was and pull out the big guns. Rakim DIDN'T want that.

                          Damn that would be sick if it happened. I was looking forward to his album the most in 2004 and then of course Rawkus had to shut down so the album couldn't be released. Of course there are rumors of everyone being signed to Shady/Aftermath so it doesn't really give to much hope to truth. But even if he wasn't it would be amazing just to have an Em and Pharoah track.
