“Coming Down” (previous review)

The Moment (documentary)

The Moment (listen/download)

VA artist PHZ-Sicks ended 2013 on a major note by releasing his latest offering The Moment. The project contains previously reviewed single “Coming Down” as well as 14 other brand new tracks. Additionally there are guest appearances from the likes of: Scolla, Alison Carney, Lyriciss, and more. Producers that added their sound to the collective include: Stompboxx Music, Best Kept Secret, Epik The Dawn, and others. The LP took two years to perfect with careful attention paid to everything from the writing process to the beat selection. Here is what else the rapper had to say about the effort: “The album is called The Moment because I feel with everything I put into it, this is the moment where my life changes. Where I get to pursue this passion like there is no tomorrow and finally reaping the rewards of the sacrifices I made to get to this point. The Moment is the embodiment of me and it’s all I can give to the world.” Beautiful way to describe the concept.

“As every emcee experiences, your first rap name is always horrible, so you have to come up with something new. I believe I was in middle school and I just had the idea that I was going to grab my science book, go to the glossary, and whatever my finger lands on will be my name. Fate was going to decide my rap name. Good thing it didn’t land on opposable thumbs or amoeba. Physics can explain everything about life. It’s essential to it and I feel like that’s my role when it comes to music. The spelling and hyphen were all just done for aesthetic purposes.” PHZ-Sicks (On his stage moniker) / Thought it was high time that readers got to know PHZ-Sicks a little more in depth as they have been exposed to a good variety of his music. So The Illixer took advantage of the opportunity to pick the artist’s mind about everything from his career influences to his college education to what his supporters have to look forward to off of his upcoming project.
