Phokis Drops "80s Show Pt. 2”

Hip-hop enthusiasts and music lovers alike are in for a treat with Phokis’s latest release, “80s Show Pt. 2.” Produced by Tragic of Dopedreamaz, this soulful beat takes us on a journey through the golden era of hip-hop while staying true to Phokis’s unique style and sound.

Opening with a powerful interview clip from the late DMX, the song sets the tone for Phokis’s message of preserving and honoring the hip-hop culture. He delivers his intricate bars and smooth flows, reflecting on his personal lifestyle and experiences in the music industry.

With lines like “here is your cup of coffee, good morning to you bro, I know this auto-tune s**t is boring to you bro, I know reality raps are foreign to you bro, so here is a fade away Kobe scoring ‘to you’ bro,” Phokis shows his disdain for the current trend of heavily autotuned and superficial music, and instead offers a nod to the classic style of storytelling and authenticity in hip hop.

John Mayer’s interview clip towards the end of the song further cements the message of the track, as he reminisces about the musical richness of the 80s, claiming that “it was just better music. There was more music ‘per square inch in the music.’”

“80s Show Pt. 2” offers a refreshing break from the current mainstream hip-hop scene and reminds us of the roots and values that make the genre so iconic. Fans are eagerly anticipating what Phokis has in store next, wondering if this is just a teaser of what’s to come in a future album or EP.

Phokis’s commitment to preserving the true essence of hip-hop is admirable, and “80s Show Pt. 2” is a testament to his dedication and talent. It’s a must-listen for anyone who appreciates the feel, sound, emotion, and imagery of hip-hop.
