LA Rapper Piggybacks on 9/11 Anniversary

First-generation Egyptian-American and LA native Pharaoh MC has waded into some very questionable PR waters. He plans to officially release his debut CD “Terrorism Era” at 9:11 a.m. on Sunday, so as to double-coincide with the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.

Compounding matters is the fact that Pharaoh is a conspiracy theorist, convinced that “six laws of nature” needed to be violated in order for the official government line on the attacks to be accurate. Equally objectionable is the artist’s chosen storytelling device:

The album begins with the rapper impersonating a terrorist about to commit the heinous crime on 9/11/01 under the pretense that the story, as it is told by the US government, is true. The album then takes a turn as the artist makes a mockery of said story and takes us on a journey of truth; presenting facts and information that might make even the most skeptical minds ask questions about our Global climate and the current state of affairs in the United States.

Pharaoh says he plans to spin off his CD into a film and one-man show.
