* Evolution Has Begun* PHI'YA BIO Clack Attack Productions Present Adversity and catastrophe can be heard in the lyrics of a lot of rappers, but Phi'ya's message from his side of the block is a lil different. There's another side of life in Naw'Lins that young African-American men experience on the other side of the spectrum! Phi'ya, pronounced FIRE, was born Shawn O.Haynes in New Orleans, Louisiana. He's representing all wards and neighborhoods from the East to the Westbank and all surrounding areas. He's the most devastating thing to come out of the Dirty South since Hurricane Katrina! The news media, in their coverage of Hurricane Katrina, portrayed native New Orleanians only as low-life, hood rats and welfare recipients. This is only half the truth! But there's another half that needs to be heard and represented. Phi'ya is not a victim or refugee and he intends to be more than just a survivor! Even before Katrina, he realized what's important in life and his direct lyrics dealing with all subject matters just may shock, entertain or offend you! Even with the levee breaks and floods that tried to drown his side of the story along with his city, he's more determined than ever to bring his message to the world. Feeling blessed and grateful to be alive, Phi'ya is more than determined to bring his lyrics to the world.
