Phonte ft. Median – Eternally (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 29th, 2012 by Hyphen

I’ve always been a big fan of when two dope MC’s can share a verse and trade lines back and forth, and that’s exactly what you get with “Eternally” off Phonte’s Charity Starts At Home.  Since it starts there, Tay and Median go door to door bringing that good music to the fine folks of North Carolina, complete with their bicycle helmets.  Hey, safety first!

Phonte ft. Evidence and Big K.R.I.T. – The Life Of Kings (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 29th, 2012 by Hyphen

Evidence couldn’t make the video shoot, but no matter…MomTigallo held it down like a star. Another win for Tay and the FE Music homies.

Phonte – The Good Fight (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 11th, 2012 by Hyphen

The newest visuals from Tay’s Charity Starts At Home album are for “The Good Fight,” a track that should resonate with many around the country right now.  On a personal level, it’s been interesting getting my career going the past few years while most of the US struggle with the recession and the aftermath of Bush’s disastrous reign.  Every time I watch the news (well, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report), it’s jarring to see and hear about all the problems facing our society and economy.

Meanwhile, I’ve managed to come up a bit, bought a condo, and have a job that I enjoy working for the best possible company I could imagine.  I’m not sure I could be any more blessed and I’m thankful that the issues Tay discusses on this record haven’t quite affected me like most folks.  Hopefully I can stay lucky and anyone reading this post can do the same.  Keep working hard and stay positive!  Good things happen to good people.

The Foreign Exchange – The Last Fall (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 5th, 2011 by Hyphen

Maaaaaaan, I knew that dude looked like he belonged on an episode of Law & Order.  You don’t quite expect a video from Phonte and Nicolay to come in the form of visuals that could have doubled for “Kim,” but Matt Koza and Bruce Pinchbeck did an excellent job with this one.

The ’94 Reggae Move

Posted in Artists, Comedy, Live Performances, Videos on July 7th, 2010 by Hyphen

I’ve been meeting cats in the industry for a decade now and I don’t think there’s anyone funnier than the homey Phonte.  His 90’s reggae impression is on poooooooint.
