PHZ-Sicks (pronounced Physics) is a hop artist hailing from Woodbridge, Va and whose 2013 mixtape, The Moment, was considered one of the best projects of 2013 by 2DopeBoyz.com & The Come Up Show. PHZ-Sicks strives to produce music that will last for years. The Drexel University graduate describes his music as a film seen through the eyes of a young black male moving up socially, economically, and artistically in the world. This is reflected by his music that ranges from songs on relationships, party/feel good tracks to songs about social injustice enveloped in catchy hooks and wordplay.
In 2011, he released his latest project, The Laws of PHZ-Sicks sponsored by Hip Hop Update, Philadelphia-based clothing line ANMLHSE, and LA-based hat line Quintin Co. Canda's Urban Culture and Lifestyle Magazine, Urbanology, stated that with this project, "the Virginia native is determined to make timeless music."
PHZ-Sicks has had the opportunity to open for established acts such as Maybach Musics Wale, Roc Nations J.Cole, and has performed at festivals such as Toronto's North by NorthEast (NXNE) 2012, Boston Underground Music Festival 2014 and 35Denton in 2015.
Currently, his latest project, "The Moment", which was released on December 3rd, 2013 has gained quick acclaim from websites such as DJBooth.net, 2Dopeboyz, and RapReviews.com. The set packs a total of 15 original jams from the artist while Alison Carney, Lyriciss, Scolla, Seanny Greggs and TFOX make guest appearances on the LP, which boast beats by Best Kept Secret, Stompboxx Music, Epik The Dawn, Kriss Liss, and Kajmir Royale. The album's release comes on the heels of the John Ledbetter-directed music video for "Coming Down" as well as the single releases of "The Love Scene III" and "Black Women". "This project was two years in the making, starting from the writing process, beat selection, constant musical changes and hours inside the studio to get w here we are today," says PHZ-Sicks. "The album is called The Moment because I feel with everything I put into it, this is the moment where my life changes. Where I get to pursue this passion like there is no tomorrow and finally reaping the rewards of the sacrifices I made to get to this point. The Moment is the embodiment of me and it's all I can give to the world."
