Weigh In – Should Phene Quit His Day Job?


Born on the West coast and raised in Central Pennsylvania, Zach Richards b.k.a. Phene has gone from fledgling emcee to an artist to watch.

A transplant who has lived on both coasts and now calls Atlanta home, he used the vast experiences he gained growing up in this world to become one of the premier freshman in his class.

Why the name Phene? To keep it simple, “Music brewed an addiction. An undeniable urge to play a part within the hip-hop community, & spread wisdom through real life messages.”

Over the past three years, Phene has torched the Central PA Hip Hop Awards for five trophies (including Best Male Artist & Best Mixtape) while being nominated 13 times. Already under his belt are Seven solo mix projects and over 400 mixtape appearances. Tours and live shows have contributed to the success, performing up and down the East Coast beside artists like Lloyd and Cassidy (Full Surface/J Records).
