Desire ****

The Queens emcee’s fifth album should be named After a Super Extended Semester Break, Class Is Back in Session. Label drama has kept one of the world’s great lyricists from blessing us for seven years, far too long for an innovative and inventive wordsmith who blends Cornel West, Dave Chappelle and LL Cool J (the Casanova version) into a near-seamless package.

Pharaohe Monch > Sunday, 1:15 p.m., Jokers Wild Stage.
