Soon to Tour, Pharoahe Monch Drops Video for “Haile Selassie Karate”

May 9, 2013 10:18 am

Despite plans to release a new LP this fall, Pharoahe Monch is still cultivating buzz for his last solo album with the release of the music video for “Haile Selassie Karate.” The visual story line proves just as dynamic as the song itself, picking up from earlier videos of Monch, Jean Grae, and Royce Da 5’9’s posse cut and Greazy’s “Kill Screen.” We watch as Assassin 13 leaves the U.S. in search of a more hospitable cultural climate, and finds himself in Mitchell’s Plain, South Africa, where he witnesses hip-hop roots in action. Luckily, Monch will be residing stateside this summer, where he’ll be launching a tour in support of his upcoming LP, PTSD. Stay posted, more info on upcoming tour dates soon! — Shouts to Okayafrica
