Video: Pharoahe Monch featuring Lil Fame - 24 Hours

Pharoahe Monch is celebrating his birthday in the best way possible—by bringing us a new song and video. The Mr. Complex-directed clip "24 Hours" finds Pharoahe teaming with M.O.P.'s Lil Fame to get their money from a Wall Street type who owes them big bucks. The song was produced by Monch, with additional production from DJ OGee and Parks Vallely. It is, Pharoahe explained, not part of a larger project. Instead, it's a thank you to his supporters. "'24 Hours' is a standalone song that’s not attached to any upcoming project and is my first independent release," Monch says of the video, premiering on Complex. "I produced both the record and the video, wanting to give my fans something hardcore on my birthday, as a show of my appreciation. With Lil Fame holding me down, I feel as if it will boost everyone’s endorphin levels 100 percent." Fame says that more collabs will be happening soon. "The video is insane, and me and Pharoahe got more shit on the way!" he tells us. Watch "24 Hours" above.

New Music from Producer Sideswipe "Fairlight Fairlady" EP

"Born in the Bay, posted in Philly" producer Sideswipe follows up his last project, "Goners," released earlier this year with his latest release "Fairlight Fairlady". Sideswipe stays in the realm of gritty, sample based instrumentals that carry with or without vocals. 5 instrumentals deep is enough to get caught in the grimey soundscapes.
