Philmore Greene releases his hard-hitting third album, 'Knowledge & Power', featuring Skyzoo, Vic Spencer, & more
Rapper Philmore Greene has been fast-rising in the indie Hip-Hop scene since the 2018 release of his debut album 'Chicago: A Third World City'. Today (4.5.2021), the Midwestern emcee releases his third solo album 'Knowledge & Power' on all digital streaming platforms. With guest verses from Skyzoo, Vic Spencer, among others, and production by Rashid Hadee (Fashawn, Little Brother, Nas, etc.) and SC (Vic Mensa, Mobb Deep, Diddy, etc.), the new ten-track project imbues a gritty, fervid sound that has been long lost in Hip-Hop since the late '90s, early 2000's.
"When we get in the lab, our aim is to make timeless music while telling our most honest truths via the music" –Philmore Greene
About Philmore Greene:
Philmore (Placing Hatred & Instigating Last Makes Obstacles Really Effortless) Greene (Grow Righteously Everyday Expect Nothing Equal) reflects the times in his music, covering social issues faced by impoverished communities, politics, and more. An emcee hailing from the west side of Chicago, Philmore draws inspiration from a wide-range of musical influences, giving you a nostalgic feeling of when music was based on stylistic concepts, beats and lyrics. After years of honing his craft, Philmore's sharp delivery, hard hitting punch lines and immersive storytelling were brought to the forefront on his first official mixtape 'The Seal Of Approval', released in October of 2012. His 2018 debut album 'Chicago: A Third World City' was well-received upon release and eventually hailed as a Chicago Hip-Hop cult classic. Philmore has since released his 2020 sophomore album 'The Survival Scroll', and gone on to share stages with the likes of Raekwon (of Wu-Tang), Havoc (of Mobb Deep), Jadakiss (of The Lox), and many others. A student of music, Philmore joins the ranks of Hip-Hop artists leading the resurgence of gritty, hard-hitting beats and rhymes.
