Th1rt3en released new single “666 (Three Six Word Stories)” — a dynamic, dizzying exploration of hyper consumerism and political corruption, police brutality and murder from prestigious trio: Jamaica, Queens’ legendary rapper Pharoahe Monch, Daru Jones (Jack White drummer) + Marcus Machado.
Alongside it, the band has shared an insightful ‘unmasked’ video in which they go more in-depth on the new song and share live performance footage for the first time.

“Pharoahe Monch is a perennial critical favorite […] dropping complex multisyllabic rhymes about nebulous geopolitical threats all the way back in 1991, before that was a thing.” – Pitchfork
“Monch and Cypress Hill unload bruising bars that tackle police brutality and systemic racism over Jones’ relentless drumming and a churning guitar from Machado
that peels of into a blazing solo at the song’s end.” – Rolling Stone
“Jesus H Christ. Is your current fave this good? Do you really know what good is? Or y’all will just consume anything? [Palindrome by th1rt3en] is high level amazeballs
(including the music & production)” – Questlove
