While we prep for the #SOPAstrike tomorrow, I decided to make one last run around the interwebs to see if anything deserved some shine at the dopehouse. Sure enough, the good folks at Complex come through with something dope. Who are Phony Ppl you ask? Well a quick trip to their official site and a simple click on the WTF? button provides the following.
Phony Ppl are a collective. They are a rap crew, a songwriting/production team, a live band, and a group of friends who live to make music. They leap across genres and destroy stages across the country, counting Plain Pat, Nick Catchdubs, Peanut Butter Wolf, Giles Peterson and Q-Tip as cosigners. The crew boasts a infectious style throughout their many projects, built on inescapable melodies, feel good hooks and advanced instrumentation. Blending hip-hop attitude with pop sensibilities, Phony Ppl speaks directly to a new, untapped generation of music lovers whose iPods are filled with music of all genres and eras. Rapper Dyme-A-Duzin recently inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records and is in the studio with Plain Pat and Emile. Producers Elijah Rawk and Bari Bass have been touring with Theophilus London and are slated to produce for his next album. A PHONY PPL PARTY DON’T STOP.
