PHILTH LIFE: THE RISE, FALL, AND RISE OF PHILTHEE BJ

Philthee's earliest memories are of finding dinner for himself in a dumpster behind a Chinese restaurant in South Central Crystal Lake. He never knew his family and had no choice but to love and raise himself. Fueled by lessons learned from a life on the streets, he developed a keen sense of what he calls "the real," a now classic quality which continues to shine through in his work to this day.

On a pair of borrowed Fisher-Price turntables and plastic records of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and "Pop Goes the Weasel," he recorded his first single at the age of 12 - the now classic "Twinkle With My Weasel, Aight?" With that, Philthee had reached the big time and artists across the globe were lining up for time in his studio. Just when it seemed there would be no stop to Philthee's reign, he found himself caught in a now classic lawsuit against Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam, who claimed Philthee was their son and, since he was still a minor, that they were entitled to control of his earnings. An 18-month court battle eventually ended in the duo's favor, stripping Philthee's bank account to mere pennies.

After 4 years in a hell of drugs and auto-erotic behavior, Philthee returned to the top in 1999 with the now classic "Philthee's Gold," a collaboration with Renee C. Psyche. Since then, success has once again been synonymous with being "philthee."

 



KING FUTURE: THE FUTURE IS NOW

King Future has paid hard dues in all the cornerstones of the hip-hop lifestyle: promotions, hair and make-up, catering, and most fatefully, a five-year gig as a limousine driver. It was one historic night, when, near the end of his chauffering shift, Future popped in one of his homemade mixes for the passenger in the back - none other than infamous underground party king Mayor Mustard. The limo came alive by track three, and was feverpitch by track ten. For Mustard, there was no choice but to push the prostitute off his face and take notice.

"A party ain't a party unless King Future and his CD players are there," remarks Mustard of Future's heartwarming Tetris-Style. "His skills are HEAVY -- like gravity itself. When he presses 'play' dude, your pants drop right to the floor!" Future was immediately invited to Mustard's legendary loft, Hammer of the Gods, and staged an epic half-hour set that left fifteen dead and numerous injured.

On his latest album titled "Drastic Tactics in Elastic," rap artist Fantastico big-upped King Future in verse: "His mixes elicit explicit reactions / soliciting satisfaction / erections and protractions / maxin' out PAs to their maximum action." Fantastico, incidentally, appeared on King Future's debut CD, "Decapitations: The Future is Now," in a harrowing track titled "Let them Eat Cake (Mix)."

King Future hopes to some day direct music videos.

PRODUCTION HIGHLIGHTS:

Hot Tart, "My Opening"

Fantastico, "Humpy Halloween Pumpin Patch"

Maachette, "Hiis Naame iss Maachette"

George Washington Mad-Carvin' U Up 24-7, "Cold Body Campaign"

Yogi Pirate "Mah Home iz da Sea"



BORN OF FIRE, RAISED ON BUD ICE: THE KRONOS STORY

Hailing from the scorching depths of the darkest south, Kronos learned the value of life when at age 15 he lost his older brother. "It hit me deep, especially since after that it was just Mom and me. I vowed to take a stand and provide for her and give her the good life."

Kronos lost his Mother the following year to violent and painful injuries that stemmed from a drunk driving accident. "It was tough being on my own like that being only 16 an' shit. But it taught me a thing or two. I don't drive drunk no more."

Kronos spent the next two years wandering the streets of Atlanta, avoiding the nuns at the local orphanage. "I ain't been locked-up yet, and I'll be damned if some winged-hat bitch is gonna tell me that I can't take care of myself." Once he reached the age of 18, he came out of hiding and pursued his first love: music. "Music is what I live on and it's what I breathe on. It was the same way with my older brother, except that after he died I learned that I had to eat some food and drink some.
