Internal Affairs is the solo debut from former Organized Konfusion member Pharoahe Monch, released on Rawkus Records and Priority Records. Monch creates a harder sound than heard on the previous Organized Konfusion records. The album spawned the Hot 100 hit "Simon Says". The album is out of print because of Pharoahe Monch's refusal to record for the Geffen Records label after Universal Music Group acquired Rawkus Records from Priority.

After three cultishly revered albums with Organized Konfusion, underground legend Pharoahe Monch cut a solo deal with Rawkus and delivered his debut, Internal Affairs, in late 1999. Both Monch and Rawkus seemed to want to push their music farther above ground, and some longtime followers were shocked to hear a harder, angrier, more profane Monch, who seemed to be courting a more thugged-out audience. But it's a reinvention that doesn't compromise his high lyrical standards, making Internal Affairs a success on its own terms.

I don't get why people care about this album? I mean, sure, Monch is lyrical, I guess. But like, I don't see why he's any better than the hundreds of other boom bap rappers. 1. 2w. Atrocityblubber. 88. The best example of rappers having a great ear for beats.

What is there to say about Pharoahe Monch really" How technical of a rapper he is, how he hasn’t been very prolific over the years, or how he remains a legend after only releasing two albums" There is a lot to say about the Pharoahe, including the previous statements. The man is an extraordinarily talented rapper who’s been a part of at least 3 legendary rap albums, and has impressed anybody who’s laid their ears upon his work. Even his second studio album, Desire, was almost an instant classic. Internal Affairs is the dynamic between his later Gospel-influenced career and his earlier, more rap oriented style. Internal Affairs holds touches of both parts of his career, whether it be harmonized, gospel preaching in the middle of tracks or the focus on lyricism and complex rapping throughout.

Tracklist Pharoahe Monch – Internal Affairs. 1997 would see the end of the duo’s reign in the underground scene and by 1999, after several guests appearances on other albums, Monch would sign to Rawkus Records. This would begin the solo career of Pharoahe Monch, so let’s take a look at the album that would kick this off: his Internal Affairs album. The hour long, 15 track album gives us an experience that is more raw, more lyrical and just as consistent as his previous work. Let’s take a look at the tracks that stand out. Monch starts his solo debut with a 3-minute intro, which serves as an actual track.

Listen free to Pharoahe Monch – Internal Affairs (Intro, Behind Closed Doors and more). After the split from Organized Konfusion, Pharoahe Monch released "Internal Affairs", which met with lukewarm acceptance by music critics. The more underground music headz adored Monch's style, flow and wit, preferring his music over that of many of the day's higher selling rap artists
