A Morpheus Soul Pod-Cast {Phontigallo Special Pt.1}

"Take some time to dream / Peace of mind is a delightful thing / This is the life of kings" [Phonte]

Over the past decade, people say the shit rappers talk about ain't interestin', they ain't listening, they thinkin' 'bout they Timbalands, I've never been to Switzerland myself but I know that these people are listening to the wrong kind of hip-hop. I could go into naming names but all you need to do is check previous episodes of Morpheus Soul to hear exactly what I'm sayin'. Hip-Hop is not Dead! This particular edition is dedicated to one of the best emcee's of the last ten years, North Carolina Born, Grammy nominated, one half of The Foreign Exchange and alongside 9th Wonder and partner in rhyme, Rapper Big Pooh completed one of my favourite groups ever... Little Brother. Phonte Coleman aka PhonTigallo aka Percy Miracles is one of many examples on how dope rap music is today. SALUTE!

This is part One of a Two Part Special. Real Music for Real People.

Your favourite artists, favourite pod-cast will be finely tuning ears onto Phonte songs, features and appearances, from Old Tay to New Tigallo, New Tigallo, New Tigallo, soul and hip-hop aplenty with tracks featuring The Away Team, Polyrhythm Addicts, Elzhi, Marc Mac, Kev Brown, Oddisee, DJ Spinna, Analogic, Roddy Rod, Dave Ghetto, Eric Roberson, Evidence, Median, Rapper Big Pooh 9th Wonder.
