Phresher

About this speaker

Phresher was born in 1989 and grew up an athlete before deciding to switch gears at age 21 and pursue a life in music. In the early stages of developing his style, the rapper privately wrote over a hundred songs that were never released, just as an exercise to define where he wanted his music to go. Though Phresher was born and raised in New York, his rap styles were versatile and took on various flavors, some songs more reminiscent of the flows of Southern rappers and others more true to his East Coast roots. Starting right around 2012, he released various singles and EPs online, but it wasn't until his 2016 single "Wait a Minute" that he truly began to take off.
