RoXX is back from its brief closure earlier in the year with a vengeance, hosting a plethora of new and exciting bookings. Raygun and Route 2 Roots promotions have teamed up to book hip-hop behemoth Pharoahe Monch.

Wikipedia says that Pharoahe Monch  is “known for his complex lyrics, complex delivery, and internal and multisyllabic rhyme schemes” and, for once, Wikipedia has got the facts dead right.

Troy Donald Jamerson (aka Pharoahe Monch) has a reputation throughout the hip-hop world as one of the best MCs in the game, originally a member of the hip-hop group Organized Konfusion he made his name as a solo artist and his track “Simon Says” has one of the most distinct beats ever. A versatile artist, Troy has switched between completely raucous hip-hop such as the aforementioned track to featuring on tracks with the likes of Mos Def where a gentler but infinitely more intricate flow is showcased. With three studio albums under the belt and a forthcoming album set for release in January 2014 you can expect a myriad of old favourites and brand new material.

Support from the Route 2 Roots collective, a bunch of DJs and live performers who are on a passionate mission to bring back the excellent sounds of contemporary soul, jazz and hip-hop to our clubs. A noble mission I am sure we can all agree.
