Lost In Translastion!! 

Pharoahe Monch's "Lost In Translation" is a collection of previously released songs from his solo albums as well as features from 2000 to 2015. The title (taken from the film staring Bill Murray and Scarlet Johansen) is alluding to the fact that many of these songs have gone undiscovered by the public at large and more importantly Pharoahe’s direct fan base. Love being the consistent theme birthed the decision for a Valentine's Day 2015 release. Appearances on this set include appearances from Justin Timberlake, Jill Scott, Eric Roberson, Sergio Mendes, Will.I.Am, Sa Ra, and Mela Machinko. I'm honored to be included in this great line-up of artist and musicians!!

XII Hits #1 in the UK!! 

XII debuted at #30 on the chart a few weeks ago and has been climbing every week since. Now, I'm proud to say that the album has reached the #1 spot!! This is not only a victory for me, but a victory for everyone that played a part in making this album happen. I believed that it was possible and you all believed with me. Thanks for the love and continued support!!

Signed My First Deal!! 

It brings me great pleasure and I'm super elated to announce that I've signed an exclusive distribution deal with Sweet Soul Records in Tokyo and the Japanese release of my freshman offering "XII" is due out March 4, 2015!!

I'm also extremely happy to announce that my good friend LG's first single, "Girl" will be included here as a bonus track. Honored to produce his very first completed work. As always, many thanks to all of my "B"elievers!! Without you rallying around me and helping to push the mission forward, things like this couldn't happen, so many, MANY thanks to all of the musicians, singers, featured artists, graphic designers, and everyone that's supporting me on this amazing journey. Much love to you all!!

DJ Frances Jaye of Neo Soul Cafe in Detroit!! 

The day before Valentine's day, one of the most loved women on the soul music scene will be gracing my city and I'm honored to have her... the great Dj Frances Jaye!! She'll be joining me on my set at MotorCity Wine. She is an absolute tastemaker when it comes to great soul music and music in general. This is surely going to be a night not to be missed!!

Houston!! Looking Forward to Meeting You!! 

On January 24, 2015, I'll be kicking it in the hometown of my good friend Robert Glasper as I'll be doing my very first in-store meet & greet at Serious Sounds. I'm really excited to meet everyone that's been supporting the album and all people that will be learning of me for the first time. I'll catch you all there!! Click on the photo for full details!!
