Video: Pharoahe Monch feat. Jill Scott-----"Still Standing"

More than a year after its release, W.A.R. (We Are Renegades) from lyrical titan Pharoahe Monch is still on the hip hop radar.  One of the stand-out cuts on this slept-on and dope release, "Still Standing" showcases the synergy with Monch and Jilly from Philly herself.  I absolutely LOVE this joint...emotional, deep, soulful, what more can you ask for!  This song is five minutes and eighteen seconds of true, awethentic, soul-stirring hip hop at its greatest.  Add my favorite vocal diva Jill Scott to the mix, and you have hip hop as it is meant to be.  Monch has been able to carve out a very successful career, at least in terms of creative product, even without Billboard or Soundscan support.  I've been fortunate enough to see this dynamic artist bless the microphone on a few occasions, and to say he is awe-inspiring would be an understatement.  If you haven't done so already, please, please, PLEASE purchase W.A.R. (We Are Renegades).  This is intellectual, thought-provoking music to say the least.  In the meantime, peep this dope and emotional video, directed by Terrance Nance.  My day is better for this joint...ONE LOVE WISDOM SEEKERS!
