Phoelix has been making a real name for himself on production side, specifically working side by side with Saba on his last album Bucket List Project as well as producing heavily on Noname‘s Telefone and working with Smino. He’s become a go-to name in the Chicago scene but today he steps away from the background and into the forefront.
He just released this new song “Sirens” where he steps up to the microphone along with rapper Elton Aura. This song is partly about putting on for Fox Valley, a suburban area outside of Chicago where he and Elton are from. Constantly the blogs and ultimately fans group all these Illinois area rappers into the same Chicago pigeonhole meanwhile there’s numerous artists including Appleby, Kweku Collins and Phoelix that I know hail from outside the city. Definitely take the chance to listen to this record so again, please hit play below.
