Philasifer Releases Album Showcasing Hiphop Versatility
June 28, 2011

Imagine hip-hop without beatboxing. Imagine a world without beatboxers. Isn’t that quite unsettling?

Imagine no more for Philasifer is here. Philasifer aka Ronald Wayne Johnson Jr. is a hip-hop Renaissance man. He is a rapper, producer, actor, and best of all, a beatboxer. When he performs on stage, he transforms into a live-wire talent spewing thought-provoking rhymes and sublime instrumentals.

Philasifer is a product of the California Bay Area and he began his love affair with hip-hop at 12. He entered the music industry with the rap-beatbox crew Uncontrolled Substance in the late 90’s. In 2001, he released the EP ‘Think Different’ and was featured in Billboard magazine’s Broadband Talent.net section. From 2002 to 2004, Philasifer has collaborated in several albums including Rebellious’ ‘Ride With Me’ and Nos Leratz’ ‘Don’t Drink the Kool Aide’. In 2004 he founded his own indie production company, Perfected Dynamics Productions, which released his solo EP ‘Demo’. In 2007, Philasifer was signed with Sonic Wave International Records/Sony BMG, releasing ‘Emceeing Is Believing’. In 2009, he would meet MC Truth and together they formed the hip-hop duo known as Real Talk and unleashed to the masses their album ‘What They Don’t Want You To Hear’. He’s produced the track ‘Broken Is Broken’ for soul artist Amber Ojeda, recorded and released the ‘Grown Man Mix-tape’, and created a song titled ‘Flip It Around’ to raise proceeds for the medical bills of DJ Kool Herc. Philasifer cranks out tunes like the slick ingénue that he is – for him, there is no distinction between life and art; he writes what he lives and lives what he writes.

Citing Count Basie, Nina Simone, KRS One, Nas, Weezer, George Benson, and Ellis Regina as his music influences, Philasifer specializes in a potent mix of meaningful rhymes with marvelous music that you can relate and dance to. Devotees of hip-hop will not be disappointed and their taste will be satiated.

Get your fill of Philasifer and download his album at iTunes distributed by JMD Records/INgrooves (a partner of Universal Music Group).
