Proving that there is no shelf life on dopeness, Pharoahe Monch releases the video for the most quixotic title on his 2011 release, W.A.R (We Are Renegades) “Haile Selassie Karate.” In our narrative “The Art of W.A.R.” Monch said of making the song…

Pharoahe Monch: I was going out there to work and have [Denaun] oversee the project and oversee songs, mix records. Listen to stuff and see if it was sonically correct. I’m really fam with those guys, Hex, and Denaun. I jumped on the Slaughterhouse record when I was out there.  I was trying to show off. I had this verse that was pretty complicated and I needed something that was slow that I could flow over. I didn’t have a title. It was like a skit so I said let’s listen to the words in the record and pick something. I picked that cuz if I saw that I’d say “What the fuck? this n*gga is crazy.”
