Name: Phil The Thrill

Age: 22

Reppin’: Newport News, Virginia. 757

My style and/or skills have been compared to: Kanye West, Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes, Drake, J. Cole

I started rapping: At the age of 10

My standout records and/or moments have been: Winning the XXL J Dilla contest. Hearing my songs being played on the radio and seeing the positive feedback my two videos received on Worldstar.

I’m gonna change the game by: Bringing the fun and flexibility back to hip-hop and music as a whole.

My goal in hip-hop is: Is to change the perception of it to the masses. There are so many areas that can be touched that so many artists are afraid to tap into, and I feel that it can be done with my approach and ability to connect with a variety of people and demographics.

I’d Like to Work With: Kanye West, hands down. A hook from Frank Ocean and Adele would be dopeness, and J. Cole’s production is something that definitely catches my ear.

I’m gonna be the next: Hip-hop artist that one day reaches his full potential so that people will one day want to be the next ME.
