Chicago born and raised, Phillip Morris has been described as “one of the ultimate word smiths of hip-hop (Skope Magazine).” Lacking any desire to fit into any hip-hop constructs, Morris’ focus on the vernacular, the message, and the music, distinguishes him from what many claim is the dire state of contemporary hip-hop. His reputation in Chicago’s internationally known music scene is of a well enunciated, articulate, fun, and engaging performer that entertains diverse crowds with complex rhymes and electrifying stage performances. Innovative. Cerebral yet accessible. Sociopolitically conscious.
