Who is PHILASIFER?
A multi-talented musician, emcee and producer whose sound flows through the mic with infectious grooves and profoundly poetic lyrics. A listen to this well-crafted recording delivers a potent glimpse of this artist's range, depth, and wide range appeal to both mainstream pop listeners and devotees of hiphop.
With a unique blend of lyrics and rhythmic skill, Philasifer takes on the industry with a pad and a pen and is never at a loss for something to say. Rather than go with the stereotypical methods of writing raps, Philasifer likes to tackle more tangible subjects.
Having been an entertainer his whole life, Philasifer approaches the stage with no hesitation, hell-bent on giving the fans what they want, without facades or false images.
Few rappers possess the courage to do what Philasifer does on a daily basis. Nevertheless, Philasifer still writes rhymes with a creative edge and aims them at a mainstream rap/hip-hop audience. This is not only to better himself and get paid for what he loves to do, but to stimulate minds as well.
One could say that in this genre of mainstream music, Philasifer has all of the strengths and none of the weaknesses.
