Writing his own music since the age of nine, singer-songwriter Philosopha hails from the Chicago southside where he produces hip-hop and rap beats.
Basing his new single “Iffy” on an individual's feelings of being indecisive when faced with a challenging situation or test, Philosopha draws from the long list of difficulties he has faced in his life. From losing his brother to gun violence, mother to breast cancer, and firstborn child at 4 months old, these experiences truly shaped Philosopha as an individual as well as his music journey to create this highly melodic track.
While each lyric contains a feeling of uncertainty and doubt, the captivating beat brings a motivating and positive spin to this track. “Iffy” draws in listeners to a hip-hop/rap single that vibrates with energy and emotion.
With every additional musical layer, Philosopha is able to create a relatable connection as he touches on the emotional states so many of us feel within our lifetime and experiences. The production of this track is unmatched and it is rare to find artists with the talent of turning such a difficult trait-like indecisiveness into catchy rap and hip-hop tracks.
There is such a strong personal connection created within “Iffy” and we can’t wait to watch Philosopha continue to grow as an artist.
