My dude E.B. Phillips is a Brooklyn native, he raps and he writes poetry there is a difference. Yes I said write, you would be surprise how many Emcees who do NOT write their own rhymes. I want y'all to check out his latest project below and tell us what you think. Pretty much any artist willing to experiment gets my respect, especially in The Land Of Copycats.

Not all the new California Emcees are on that "Kendrick Lamar" tip, we still have those street talkin' REal hood life type of rappers. Let's face it even though "Gangsta Rap" gets critized a lot by mainstream media, I don't know one person who don't like "The Chronic" Cd. So please any way but back to the intro...Trizz, born Arthur “Tre” Lea III, is a self- released rapper from the Inland Empire, a region of Southern California, east of Los Angeles.
The young rapper became an avid
music aficionado at an early age, first picking up a microphone at the tender age of nine. Growing up in the suburbs, HipHop became a way for Trizz and his neighborhood friends to escape boredom and the simplicities of living life on the outskirts. As his writing skills developed, Trizz
perfected his lyrical skill and began producing his own beats and mixtapes under the moniker “Young Trizz.” His self-titled debut EP demonstrates the journey of an independent artist looking to lead ahead of the pack.
After dropping the “Young” from his stage name to signify his adulthood, Trizz released “New West,” a nod to the West Coast pioneers of rap. A steady stream of digital downloads and positive reaction in the virtual world led to the release of, “Case 17,” a mixtape named for the 17 murder cases committed by serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.
Now at the age of 22, Trizz is indeed poised to become one of the most prolific lyricists of his time, consistently writing rhymes, producing new material and touring across the States.
2012 marked a new chapter in Trizz’s career—signing with Brotha Lynch Hung’s, Madesicc Muzicc. Under the new label, Trizz has earned two writing credits on Brotha Lynch Hung’s seventh studio album “Mannibalector” and is also featured on tracks “Bacon N Eggs (Skit),” and “MDK.” In March 2013, Trizz appeared on the Independent Powerhouse Tour, alongside Tech N9ne and other Strange Music artists, Rittz,
Kutt Calhoun and Ces Cru.

These ladies are a combination of things eclectic is one, raw talent would be another, most would consider this to be a inquired taste of HipHop. Well unlike most HipHop sites we try to stay focused on the Art of music and not the drama behind it.
