Local Music Highlight: Cityphil

This week’s local music highlight is on Cityphil, a vibrant Huntington rapper.

Cityphil has songs on his Soundcloud from 5 years to 2 months ago. His newest song is Wassup With You with Ponce De’Leioun.

On the track Cityphil uses vocal affects and has a style similar to Lil Uzi. This quickly became my favorite track once I heard it, the lyrics are on a higher level than most of the local competition. This is a special song that everyone should hear and Cityphil can be proud of.

Cityphil’s song with the most plays however is, Andrew Wiggins from 4 years ago.

A much more trap feel than Wassup With You, the song is pretty self explanatory, Andrew Wiggins. The song came out back when Wiggins was taking the basketball world by storm, just as Cityphil planned to do in rap.

A more recent track that I liked a lot is There She Go which came out 5 months ago.

This song shocked me with the play count as I thought it was much better than that number would lead me to believe. Featuring Ky and another local music highlight Truth, this was a beautiful song in the same category as Wassup With You.

Between Cityphil’s last 2 songs people need to be aware of an artist with lots of talent and  probably my favorite local music hip-hop voice. Check out Cityphil’s Soundcloud here and give all this amazing music a listen. There are also several features and other songs I didn’t get to in this highlight. Give it a look and follow Cityphil on Twitter here to stay updated on future music releases. Cityphil has a great flow and a style unrivaled in local music, everyone needs to give this music a try.
