Kingpen Slim Ft. Styles P-Dead (Prod By Mark Henry)

So much dope shit coming out of the D.C. area these days…and I especially love this because I’m in the DMV right now and it’s making me feel all proud with the warm fuzzies that the place that raised me is still shining, and actually I think I’m feelin’ the stuff coming out from this area these days even more than I did when I left this place. I’ve been watching PHZ-Sicks grow as an emcee for some years now, and I think this video is pretty great.

I fuck with Phil Da Phuture. Why? Well, he got sentenced to some house arrest time once and did what anyone on house arrest should do – perfect their craft. He set up a home studio, recorded tracks on protools, and then released stuff in a mixtape entitled House Arrest Hustle. Anyone who doesn’t let a bad situation get them down, and instead uses it as motivation to progress, will always get love here at the site. It also helps that Fat Trel is on the assist and I’ll forever have love for the DMV Hip Hop scene. This particular video is for a track which will appear on his Louder Than You mixtape which is set to drop on Halloween through 368 Music Group.

The DMV spitter releases visuals for “My Life,” directed by Jamaal Teagle. The track appeared on his The Balance EP: Heart which is available for download at DJBooth.

I love this group. I love Maimouna Youssef’s voice. I love this song. I love this mixtape. And now this wonderful track has a video.
