We Stole The Show

The brilliance of many is dimmed attempting to grow under the grey skies in Buffalo NY. But Gr& Phee and Rhyson Hall’s dreams of escaping the Rust Belt are being realized. Now in NYC, the sounds of the /HipHop/Comedy/Soul/Electro hybrid WESTOLETHESHOW are warnings to the music world that the talent hidden in Upstate New York will not be mute any longer.

Meeting in 2004, Phee, a veteran emcee and staple in the Buffalo Hip Hop scene, and Rhyson, the hungry newcomer making noise in area colleges, collaborated on a local independent label and shaped the Upstate scene for the following two years. They have shared the stage with Little Brother, Inspectah Deck, Planet Asia, Afu Ra, Jeru The Damaja, DJ Dopey, Snoop Dogg, Elephant Man, Cassidy, Raekwon, Kool G Rap, RA the Ruggedman, DJ Architect, Sean Paul, The Clipse, Kelis, Cam’ron, Ghostface, Isis (Thunderheist), Eternia and Swollen Members, Nice &Smooth, Ninjasonik, Shinobi Ninja, Kalle Allday, YC the Cynic, Homeboy Sandman.

After releasing top 5 singles on Rap Attack Lives and CMJ’s radio charts , and taking off on a month long, cross country adventure dubbed “The Guy on the Couch Tour”, the two joined forces with a rock band and brought their full musical potential to life. Complete strangers have become instant fans by the end of their shows with Phee’s comedic outbursts and Rhyson’s nonstop energy, reintroducing crowds across the country to real showmanship.

When Gr& Phee and Rhyson Hall are together, the cameras should be rolling if they aren’t all ready. During these hilarious and humbling times, the two ambassadors for the Buffalo, NY Hip Hop scene are still here, on the cusp of what’s fresh and groundbreaking in music.
