So, I was cruising through Wikipedia (yes, I do know that isn’t the MOST accurate source, but it is certainly the most updated, even if I don’t treat the words on it as official confirmation) and I noticed that on Pharoahe Monch’s Wiki page it states that W.A.R. is being released on 9/14 (which, BTW, is apparently also G.O.O.D. Music Day?!).
Two thoughts come to this: 1) I am somewhat worried about him getting drowned in a sea of other good music coming out that day (although that thought almost gets cancelled when I realize that all potential releases will be drowned in the sea of Kanye West, whether they are under West’s label or not), ans 2) I’m excited. I immediately put him at the top of my list for the most anticipated album release this year. So, as I just wanted to share this (even if I may be late), here’s to hoping the date either sticks or gets pushed to an earlier date. We’ve already given up on Detox, but I don’t know if I can make it another year without that rediculously talented emcee from Queens.
