Phillip Morris The Process of Addiction Has its Costs

Nerdcore is not unusual to the Canadian hip-hop scene, given the outsider influence of the vast prairies. But a skinny kid from big, bad Chicago? It's evident that region has nothing to do with nerdiness. Whether he's rapping about super-sexy motherboards ("The Milf Song") or asking to "kick a little something for the 45 and up Caucasian women" ("May I?"), Phillip Morris puts a mean-mug on acned faces. But techie references and a nasally voice don't make him talented; his sharp rhymes do, and he's got plenty. And more often than most rapper nerds, when he breaks from the comedy, Phillip Morris is just as strong with cutting political and social commentary. (Second Hand)
