Pharoahe Monch "Broken Again" (video)
Published Jun 02, 2014Inner turmoil is central to Pharoahe Monch's new, highly personal video for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) track "Broken Again," which finds the rapper dramatizing severe health and addiction issues.
The stilted bass rhythms and string section of the sentimental track score Monch's foggy journey through city streets, time spent contemplating the bottle, and a back-and-forth between himself and a friend trying to help him through his struggle. Balancing out the bleakness are lovely, though shadowy shots of the woman pirouetting her way through the madness, but the video ultimately plays up a traumatizing time.
You'll find the pensive look at addiction down below.
