Prolific Maryland emcee Phil Ade definitely goes hard on his latest mixtape, Friday II, which was released through his record label, 368 Music Group on December 30, 2011 and mixed by DJ Money. Now the interesting thing about Phil Ade is that he is a rapper from the Suburbs of Maryland, yet Phil Ade rhymes like he is straight from the hood. However, these days it is becoming more and more common for rappers to come from all walks of life and different socio-economic levels, as Hip-Hop has become ever increasingly main stream. However, Phil Ade does not try and be anyone else on his records; he just raps from the heart. For instance, on Ade’s remix of Drake’s “Headlines”, Phil Ade rhymes, “this prodigy cause a havoc, but I ain’t deep in the mob, rappers tell me who has it, because I’m leavin’ them robbed”. Moreover, the thing I love about Phil Ade is that he doesn’t try to take himself too seriously and just has fun with his rhymes. For instance, as Phil Ade points out on “Make A Move”, “I’m going a hundred miles and running the game, bringin’ back the fun to the game, hip-hop music, we one and the same”. Not to mention the fact that Phil Ade has some serious rhyming skills, as demonstrated in the previous song lyric quotes from “Deadlines” and “Make A Move”.
