Biography

Born and raised in the city of where big dreams are made of, 23-year-old Brooklyn native Phenom brings a unique point of view along with a versatile skill set to the Hip-Hop game. Whether it’s the spitfire classic style of “Stereo Typpin” or the radio friendly flare of tracks like “Back With You”, Phenom rhymes with an undeniable intelligence and lyricism. As an artist, he can best be described as a natural talent. Along with his compelling back-story, Phenom has not only worked his way up but has grown to become a truly gifted wordsmith as well as dynamic performer.

Hailing from the ‘hood and having grown up around all of the excess of the streets, Phenom weaves lyrical tales from the perspective of a city kid who’s grown up and out of the box of the ghetto without ever forgetting where he came from. You can say the streets made him smart, but school made him smarter. As a Howard University student, the rapper challenges longstanding concepts of the typical Hip-Hop artist and his music defies what many consider “real” Hip-Hop artistry to be. “Real music doesn’t have to come out of the inner city gangster lifestyle or a jailhouse,” he says. “My music is still real—I’m still an inner city kid who grew up, but I went to school and got a degree.”

With a new decade in the midst, Phenom has what it takes to spin hits out of the web of stereotypes and copycats in the Hip-Hop music scene. With Jay-Z, Nas and Notorious B.I.G. as his biggest influences, he’s sure to bring a high level of talent to every opportunity soon to come his way as a promising rising star from the East Coast.

Lyrics

Got It Made

Written By: Phenom

Intro:
It feels good
Being a graduating senior
Class of 0 – ‘10
Holla at me baby

Verse I:
I’m kinda spoiled cuz everything I want got made,
I wanted fame I wear shades that cover half my face
Ask around, I bet these bitties know my name
Ain’t a dime in that dorm that this kid aint slain
High school, da kid was know to get straight A’s
HU 4 years, got it out of the way
My mom said I’m sorta lazy but I still get paid
Gotta buzz from NY to Cali-forn-ia
Kinda cheesy, 50 inch to play my games
Picked up my refund and spent it all that day
You got 20 for a show, then I just might stay
Maybe lata, I booked a flight to Saint Tropez
See I get a lot of women from the style that I keep
So it really doesn’t matter how many that I smeeze
My life messy so I hired a maid
So quite frankly I got it made

Hook:
Hollywood lights, fancy cars
Been around the world and they know who we are
(I got it made) (I got it made)
Don’t it feel good playing for this team
Been around the world and we living our dream
(I got it made) (I got it made)

Verse II:
I’m kinda choosey with the shorties that I choose to hang
I stay fly year around they call me peter pan
IQ thru the roof like I’m Doogie Howz
Ya girl a smeeze now, then I’ma smeeze her out
Golden wrapper that’s the brand I choose,
Them others tend to break so hence I neva use
So Gucci-Louie I am cool among the coolest
Don’t hate be like Nike homeboy, just do it
Cuz I slay fresh dimes (daily)
You competing with me (is you crazy)
Every other week a different shiner on da wrist
And every single day a different shorty on my hip
Jus think, blink and you’ll miss a million signs
Jus think, I’ma sell a mil’ in time
Cotdamn I’ll be paid (ha ha)
So quite frankly I got it made

Hook:
Hollywood lights, fancy cars
Been around the world and they know who we are
(I got it made) (I got it made)
Don’t it feel good playing for this team
Been around the world and we living our dream
(I got it made) (I got it made)

Oh La Oh La Aye
Oh La Oh La Aye
Oh La Oh La Aye
Oh La Oh La Aye

Hook:
Hollywood lights, fancy cars
Been around the world and they know who we are
(I got it made) (I got it made)
Don’t it feel good playing for this team
Been around the world and we living our dream
(I got it made) (I got it made)
