Hartford, CT (PRWEB) March 25, 2010
Although Connecticut has birthed dozens of successful pop artists, including Michael Bolton, John Mayer, The Carpenters and Cassie, the state has yet to produce a Hip Hop superstar. The four men of Phar-City are proudly representing their state, stepping out with a sound and style influenced by both their humble surroundings and the lavish taste of today's youth.
With three strong Talk of CT mixtapes under their belt thus far, two hosted by New York’s Hot 97/Sirius Radio powerhouse DJ Kay Slay, the group is putting the final touches on Part 4 of the series. The new mixtape is slated for release on March 30, 2010, and will be hosted by DJ Dolla Sign and DJ Whoo Kid.
Phar-City’s current single “Part Time Lover” features crooner Range, and is impacting their local radio stations as the group prepares for the release of the official video. Other recent collaborations with the likes of Ray J, Trey Songz and T-Pain have earned Phar-City new fans nationwide, and they are steadily recording fresh music for their upcoming debut album.
“We want to have a well-rounded album, and touch on the things that we’ve gone through coming up in this game as artists,”Crisis explains. “We get across the struggles, but also the fun side of things. We definitely will have a fresh sound for the project, which in our eyes is definitely classic material.”
For the time being, the group is focused on The Talk of CT 4 project, which includes six original songs. Phar-City's Beatdown produced five of the tracks, while DJ Static, known for his win at the '07 Rawkus Soundbombing Producer Battle, produced the lead single "Part Time Lover."
The video for "Part Time Lover" features a bevy of beautiful, sultry actresses, and the members of Phar-City hope that fans will be sonically pleased as well. While this song represents just one facet of their musical repertoire, they do have every intention of representing their home state with quality from their years of hard work.
“Connecticut’s music scene is special, in that it’s new and different," Sho-Off explains. "Phar-City has a sound that the rest of the world has not heard yet. We have been rapping for a while, and it’s time everyone understands that Connecticut is here to stay. We work hard, and we make music for the people. Phar-City’s sound will stand out in the forefront of this movement.”
