`Body Baby' is taken from Pharoahe Monch's new album, `Desire'. The Elvis-inspired, like nothing you've ever heard before, the Vegas/hip hop fusion proves that Monch has more to his game than the political metaphor-heavy lyrical bombs that he's best known for. Zane Lowe has already pronounced `Body Baby' as his `Hottest Record In The World'.

One of the most eagerly awaited albums of the last 10 years, is a stunning collection of deeply soulful, heavily political, and thought provoking songs which deal with a variety of issues from the war in Iraq, to the human cost of Gun trading, to love, sex, survival and George Bush, amongst other themes. Since the release of `Internal Affairs' in 1999,
Monch has been caught up in label wrangles, leaving Rawkus, almost signing to Eminem's Shady Records, moving to Geffen before signing to Steve Rifkind's (Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep) SRC Records. With a guest appearance from Erykah Badu and beats from the likes of Mr. Porter (Kon-Artist of D12), The Alchemist, Detroit's Black Milk and long-time collaborator Lee Stone, the lyrical king from Queens is definitely looking to move the art form of Hip-Hop forward with this album. Aside from the supreme ceaseless lyrical flow, it's the sheer sonic scale of Desire that's so impressive.
