After producing for fellow Chicago artists like Noname (Telefone) and Saba (Bucket List Project,) Phoelix has brought fans of his work a full introduction to his vibe. He just dropped a seven track EP called GSPL.
“My dad and I have a history of conflict and him just being trash to my mom," he says of the project. "But on my birthday last year, he called me and was like, ‘Hey, you wanna go to the Virgin Islands in July?’ And the date we went was the July 17, 2016. So when we got down there, I realized that he wasn’t trying to just spend time with me and potentially reconcile our relationship. We ended up a part of this church missions trip. So naturally I was infuriated and with no other outlet I made ‘Red Beans & Rice’ in the Virgin Islands. That day was the start of this project and to drop it on this date just makes it a complete year of my life that I can release.”
