Pharoahe Monch’s debut album Internal Affairs, was taken off shelves because the sample for its biggest hit “Simon Says” wasn’t cleared. It utilized a sample of the Godzilla Theme and it is definitely a crowd mover. This post is about “Queens”, which is arguably the best song on this album (it’s hard to choose one “best song” on this album). It samples “Til the Cops Come Knockin” by Maxwell and the song is just a deep story about “a nigga named Donovan”.
