Pharoahe Monch – Broken Again [Video]

Lifted from his latest offering, the highly re-playable concept LP “PTSD“, the MonARch minus the A&R drops off visuals for his latest single “Broken Again“.

In conjunction with creative hub BKLYN1834 handling the treatment and co-starring multitasking Desiree Godsell as the Heroine (or possibly the Heroin, in this case), Monch turns in a compelling audio/visual statement, with crooned chorus and dexterous lyrics revolving around the downward, self-medicating spiral that Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other related mental illnesses are commonly associated with, especially in light of certain revelations regarding the VA and it’s infamous backlog of cases.

Ringing with several personal truths about his own battle with depression, the video can be interpreted several different ways but the gist of the matter is that mental illness is real, socially crippling and within certain communities and demographics, needs more dialogue.

Cop the entire LP over HERE and keep up with the more active half of Organized Konfusion below.
