Lieutenant Gaviston speaks of a recon mission in Kabul, Afghanistan where he discovers classified information that changes everything that he believes about this W.A.R. This information is uploaded and transmitted through time. If you eventually hear this; you have been ordained or genetically pre-exposed to have received this information. What you will eventually hear is a warning. These words are powerfully delivered by Idris Elba to set a tone for Pharoahe Monch's album W.A.R. (We Are Renegades). The material presented is a consistent message from start to finish with new epiphanies exposed after various sets of songs. The order of music helps the listener see the vivid stories that Pharoahe is painting through the use of his lyrics. The production compliments Monch's delivery and takes on a genuine art form that could easily stand on it's own. Live instruments resonate at the start and end of certain tracks, such as his title song W.A.R. featuring Immortal Technique and Vernon Reid. Producers Exile, Marco Polo, M-Phazes, Fatin, Diamond D, Mike Loe, Samiyam, Adam Deitch, Eric Krasno & Pharoahe Monch himself help shape the album into what will be Monch's greatest work to date.
