Brooklyn rapper Phenom is doing what it takes to become a phenomenon, but he also knows it cannot be an overnight tactic. Therefore, he knows that sometimes “Money Make The World Go Round”, but when it comes around, one can be rewarded. The song is from his Boy Meets World
Off of Phenom’s latest Boy Meets World street album is the ADOTHEGOD-produced song “What They Hating For”. If you haven’t heard him or about him yet, now find out why everyone else hates him, as if his name was Chris.

An old school beat can set everything right, but even with a bit of the familiar, you still have to deliver the good in the lyric department, and with those lyrics, a nice means of speaking. Phenom does all of this properly in his new one for “Ain’t Shit Free”, and if it was, there would be a quality issue.
Phenom has a new track where he simply talks about the way he feels in “The Way I Feel”. As you can see in the above photo, he is just hanging out under a bridge, maybe tossing a few pebbles in the nearby river, and when he wants to impress a woman, he simply tells her “I got mad food, Netflix, and some kush” and BOOM!, solid gold results. Produced by Kajmir Royale, this one works for me. Sometimes being laid back and calm is all that you need to make a good song.
His Twitter bio says he’s a “visionary” as well as a “porno director” but I will choose to focus on the first one, which is “indie recording artist”. This refers to Brooklyn’s Phenom, who is about to release a new street album next month called Boy Meets World, and he is offering up the Superstar O-produced “Just Fine” from it for all to check out.
His “Ambitious Kidz” video was posted here last month, please check it out to get an extra dose of this guy’s work.
When you are without what you want, you dream about what it would mean to have them. Then you realize what is and isn’t important, and stick to what’s genuine to you. To dream is to have ambition, and this is what Phenom talks about in his new track, “Ambitious Kidz”, produced by Jehf Slaps. The video was directed by JNuno, and the song will find a home on Phenom’s forthcoming Boy Meets World
project due out later this summer.
Tensei are a Chicago-based production crew consisting of Simple X and Midas Wells, and together they have come up with an EP that is an example of their work and what they’re trying to accomplish with their music. It’s called One, and the EP features contributions from The Ones, Scud One, Phenom, Khari Lemuel, Scarlet Monk.
What kind of music this is? They create some smoothed out jazz-influenced soul and funk, but balance things with some head nod-worthy hip-hop, done primarily with real instrumentation and a collective of musicians helping them on their mission.
Don’t miss them on their mission.
(NOTE: The player below highlights 7 of the 10 tracks. The 7 tracks create the “EP”, but the three with vocals turn One into a full length album. If you like what you hear, show support by making a purchase.)
