You know, it’s too bad that one of the more anticipated tracks off Pharoahe Monch’s forthcoming W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) disappeared after we posted it. But hey, I guess this leak makes up for it. No, scratch that, it definitely does, as “Black Hand Side” finds Pharoahe linking again with Styles P for yet another hit. While I doubt this will get quite as big as “My Life,” it’s still really damn good. And then add on the fact that Phonte has provided the hook and you have a surefire winner. Yes, it would have been great to hear Tay rap on here, but his harmonizing sounds great on “Black Hand Side.”
