You may remember Phora was covered as a part of last years article ‘5 MCs To Watch’. This week the Californian MC released his album Angels with Broken Wings. A mix between hip hop, R&B and soul, “Halos & Devil Horns” (produced by Eskupe of the Yours Truly team) is the stand out track on the album.
With vocal and drum samples from the infamous Notorious B.I.G’s “Juicy,” “Halo & Devil Horns,” as aptly described by one of my boys, is beautiful. To sample a Biggie track and do the original justice is no small feat. PhoraOne finds the correct balance between soul and originality to make the song his, producing what undoubtedly will become an underground classic in years to come.
Angel with Broken Wings is available to stream on Soundcloud.
