Phillie’s hunger gives “Welcome To The Detroit Zoo” a refreshingly honest feel and showcases Phillie’s life journey on Detroit’s infamous ‘Number Streets’. The album is a mix of street poetry, lyricism, life lessons, and pure entertainment. Phillie possesses a sense of humor and a refreshing perspective among the dreary backdrop of his hometown of Detroit.
Fully produced by Wu Tang's Bronze Nazareth, the emotionally driven soundscapes only enhance Phillies rhymes. You can listen to this album two different ways, zone out on the music alone, or sink your mind into the lyrics and travel with Phillie to the places he takes you.
"The hood is like a zoo, and I'm your tour guide, will you join me? All it costs is to pay a little attention to the lyrics. The beats by Bronze speak for themselves" Phillie suggests.
"Welcome To The Detroit Zoo" is truly a worthy piece of art.
