"5 Stars"

If you folks don't know about Philasifer by now, I wonder what you have been polluting your ear holes with.
This talented producer/emcee, reminded me of why I started listening to Hip Hop. It's not always about the tight beats, but the lyrics. Lyrics I can listen to comfortably with my mother and my niece's and nephews.
Check for the earlier gems- I feel the passion in his earlier recordings. He has evolved- and I am glad to see he is still doing his thang! But get whatever you can get your hands on, because this B-Boy will be larger than life!

Funk not only can move, it can remove.. Ya dig!
Support true Hip Hop... Real Hip Hop

2009 Untitled PHILASIFER project - In Production



There is another world behind the cardboard facade called mainstream Hiphop. Virtually every facet of this rich and dynamic culture has been commercially exploited to such an extent that its public face bears only a slight resemblance to its former self. Most emcee’s of the new school refuse to acknowledge the values upon which Rap music was built: truth and experience. It is Emcees like Philasifer who seek to maintain a strong connection with these values and build their artistic edifice on the cornerstone of Rap’s purer elements. Philasifer (Ron Johnson Jr.) has had an affinity for music and performing arts since birth, his mother a singer and his father a trumpet player. Philasifer is an excellent Rapper, Beatbox, and highly skilled producer who plays 7 different instruments and produces and engineers the majority of his own tracks.

“I want to bring my music to the world because I think I have something genuine to say,” says Ron, “ The Rappers that are out now only represent themselves and their bank account, they don’t represent the Hiphop culture as a whole, even though that’s the thing that’s making them rich. ”

“In my music I share what I love: I had a great childhood, have done positive things and I’m still a Hiphopper. I want to show people you don’t need to be negative to be a dope Emcee. There is more to life and more to me.”

There is much more to him indeed. He is a webmaster, amateur filmmaker, video game aficionado, online radio DJ, clothing line designer, computer repairer and builder, and part-time student…Philasifer definitely has both feet on the ground.

So why does Philasifer seek to swim in the mainstream? He states simply, “As long as Hiphop and pop have become one and the same there needs to be a true Hiphop alternative.”

Philasifer is that true alternative.
