Tracing his rise to rap glory, the melodic rhymer pieces together a sonically rich and infectious return. Merging forces with The Hottest Z, Phelps takes on a more brazen approach with his wordplay, retaining a casual swagger as he switches between flows over a rumbling bassline and tumbling piano samples.

Making his debut in 2016, Phelps continues to carve out his own space his within the hip-hop and R&B realms. The brother of KAYTRANADA, the two embrace collaborating on each other’s releases. Recently, Phelps featured on the producer’s new full-length ‘TIMELESS’ with the celebratory ‘Call U Up’. First previewed at KAYTRA’S HERE at Outernet listening party, the two will again grace London crowds with a string of performances across the first weekend of All Points East.

‘Check Check Freestyle’ teases Phelps’ forthcoming EP ‘TOP Z’, due July 12th. As he expands his artistry in new directions, Phelps steps into the summer season with an exciting catalogue of unreleased material.
