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.  Love being the consistent theme birthed the decision for a Valentine’s Day 2015 release. Featured on this set are appearances from Justin Timberlake, Jill Scott, Eric Roberson, dEnAuN, Brandon Williams, Sergio Mendes, Will.I.Am, Robert Glasper, Sa Ra, and Mela Machinko.  The set also features one new track “Home (HGH)” featuring Phonte’ and Tamisha.

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.  W.A.R Media presents Pharoahe’s love letter to his fans on this day of love.

Talib Reads Jay-Z: Dramatic Interpretations [VID]

 

Listen to Talib’s latest “Prisoner of Conscious” as well as Jay-Z’s “Moment of Clarity”: http://goo.gl/3WE9f

Songs lyrics can be hypnotic, poetic, seductive or inscrutable, and we’ve all had moments where we wonder about the meaning of a specific line or a stanza. For our “Dramatic Interpretations” series, Google Play presents some of today’s top artists with a classic song verse, and asks them to give a reading of it as well as present their own interpretation. The results are funny, and offer insight into both the artist and the song. Here Talib Kweli reads a verse from Jay-Z’s “Moment of Clarity”.
