It’s time for Australia and New Zealand to “get the f*ck up”, as the Grammy Award-winning hip hop legend Pharoahe Monch heads over for a seven-date tour in September, his first since 2014.

Listed by many as one of the best lyricists to ever do it, the NYC emcee jumped from his bona fide breakthrough classic ‘Simon Says’ to collabs with fellow legends in the game like Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Nate Dogg, and even Aussie champs Hilltop Hoods and M-Phazes.

Even the likes of Eminen give the guy the highest praise: “Pharoahe Monch is incredible, man…” Em says of the veteran rapper. “He has been ahead of his  time since he came out.”

Monch is bringing his full crew of hypeman Cam and DJ Boogie Blind over for the trip, which sees him hit up Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, Fremantle and Perth, as well as a trip to Auckland, and an appearance at the Wave Rock Weekender in rural WA.

Tickets are on sale now, and you can check out the full list of dates below.
