VG: Outside of HIp-Hop who would you say is a artist that you can enjoy? Is there any music from the 50s, 60s, 70s, that has influenced Philly Chase?
Oh yes, I come from a family of singers and musicians! My father had us listening to a lot of Oldies Chi Lites, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Smokey Robinson, I can go on and on. It has definitely shaped me musically to focus on making timeless music. Right now I really Like Rihanna, Miguel, Drake. To me They are the most well rounded artist right now!
