Phake also known as My Name is Phake, is a pseudonym for a rapper chronicling the marijuana black market. The artist name also doubles as the title of the EP in which the the track, ‘Custies’ is taken from. The project as it were, is an anthemic celebration of a lifetime spent in the black market marijuana game. It chronicles the rapper’s rise to success, and perfectly captures the familiar contempt that veterans of any industry have for its arrogant newcomers.
Produced by $mash $yndicate and featuring virtuosic turntablism from Scratch Bundles (both men do this throughout the whole EP), Custies brings to the fore sophisticated lyricism.
