Phashara (of Beatmonstas) to Release New Album “PATHWAYS”. Initial physical release Exclusively at on DigiPack CD 06/12/2012. Digital Release set for 08/14/2012.

Chicago, IL (June 12, 2012) Pathways is the sophomore solo album from Chicago’s Phashara (of Beatmonstas). Of the 13 tracks, 10 are produced by the emcee & beatmaker himself. Pathways, the conceptual declaration of one who walks his own path, has been referred to as a “future classic”.  With its heavy, hard hitting drums and sample driven retro contemporary hip-hop feel, this is hip-hop for the grown up B-boys and B-girls who enjoy that ole boombap with conscious lyricism.

Phashara is joined by the likes of legendary emcee Sadat X (Brand Nubian) on ‘Codes’, produced by Noble Dru with cuts from DJ 3rd Rail. The illustrious !llmind produced the melodious ‘Dreams’ featuring Finale & Reefa Rei. The sun rises with, UK producer, The Passion HiFi’s reprise of ‘Sunshine’, the perfect summer banger. ‘Drop Bombs’ finds Phashara doing just that with circus trapeze-esque synths, big drums and sharp lyrical delivery. calls Phashara “one to watch” and Pathways will surely make it worth your while.
