JACOB H. CARRUTHERS FOR INNER CITY STUDIES
Phenom the fearless emcee/poet from Chi Town has rocked stages throughout America with accomplished artists such as Roy Ayers, Mos Def, The Roots, Common, Erykah Badu, Dwele, Fertile Ground and the BK emcee Talib Kweli. He is a 3 time Chicago Music Award Nominee and has been quoted by VIBE.com as the next artist to make a major impact on the industry. His song Willie Snot Box off of the Best Kept Secretz compilation has earned him the title as the undergrounds microphone messiah. One listen to Phenoms music will make the average any rapper/artist who thinks theyre hot, revisit the lab to tighten up his or her skill.
Phenom takes his contagious fire to schools, churches, poetry scene after founding the exciting grass roots poetic theater collective POETREE Chicago. Poeoples Organized Entertainment Teaching Righteous Education Everywhere has flooded the poetry scene with powerful concepts and an original mixture of truth, entertainment and culture. They began as a group of 11 with their WU-Tang Klan-ish presence the developed into a collective of 4 elements watering the minds of poetry connoisseurs everywhere. The collective has often been compared to the likes of the Pharcide, the Fugees and Digable Planets. Quickly gaining a reputation as hiphops answer, POETREE has toured the country rocking venues with artists such as Dead Prez, John Legend and Common. The group of 4 released a classic album Positive Pollution on April 1st and he highly anticipated release immediately sold over 2000 copies in the Midwest and still climbing.
Positive Pollution officially established Phenom as a true contributor to upholding a positive image of hiphop as we know it. It gives the listener an appreciation for REAL music. Surely with the talent he possesses it will only be a matter of time before he may be the time where this hiphop phenomenon conquers new markets. The game became pregnant with me and now its time to birth a love child that will bring new flavor to the palates of the hungry music lovers everywhere.
