Pharoahe Monch has announced that his acclaimed 1999 debut album Internal Affairs will finally be re-released.
The rapper took to Instagram to break the news, confirming that the record will hit streaming services on October 19 to coincide with the record’s 20th anniversary. “It will be available for the first time ever! Digitally for the first time ever,” he added.
Internal Affairs was originally released in 1999 via the now-defunct Rawkus Records. The LP has been unavailable for the better part of the last two decades due to a lawsuit by Japanese company Toho over an unauthorized sample of the Godzilla theme song used in “Simon Says.”
