East of LA and UTB Life$tyle present Reali$m…
Showing constant progression and the consistent crafting of a quality product can evidence the passion an artist has for their music. Pheo.’s passion has definitely shone, releasing 3 meticulously crafted projects over the span of 3 years, all revolving around his birth month of March. The release of Reali$m finds him as an artist who has now been a part of a national tour, as a member of The Smokers Club, had a release on a nationally recognized imprint in Mad Decent, as well as a recent appearance at the highly regarded Paid Dues Festival.
Pheo. and his unique flow have always exhibited the ability to morph in ways that match any production style, priding himself in the perfect blending of beat with rapper. The production choices on Reali$m further this line of thinking, featuring Soulection producers, Mr. Carmack, Lakim and Koen, along with a rare credit from Afta-1, J-Money, Alf Alpha, UTB Life$tyle’s BatmanOnTheBeatz and upcoming producer BrianFolk, among others. There are also vocal appearances from fellow crew member Cashius Green, SayKnowledge and Nikko Gray. Whether a soul loop based beat or a synth and bass heavy sound presents itself, on Reali$m, he allows each unique sound to guide his rhymes, giving concept and meaning to each track on the project. It is one, single line on the closing track that serves to best describe the feeling Pheo. hopes to evoke of the listener, as he rhymes, “Lose your training wheels / not your handle bars…”, the real essence of Reali$m; stay real to yourself, take risks, but be cautious not to lose your sense of self-guidance.
