My boy Vishnue was visiting me from Connecticut, he came down to help me with some production on the 6’6 240 project we was working on at that time. I had a meeting setup with these crew out of Fairmont WV by the name of Phyr Squad, I ran into them at a couple shows and we all agreed to meet up and checkout each others music. My boy Vish is very hard to impress, so he was sizing them up, I could tell by the look on his face he thought I was wasting time, until we started to hear the music.
To me, different artist have strengths and weaknesses, some artist can ride a beat, or some have good melodies or harmonies, Phyr Squad is a group of great songwriters, they hear the beat, come up with a concept that fits the beat, and do a great job of of explaining the story and concept in the verse and hook, a skill set that is taken for granted. The crew consisted of at that time Sean Thrilla, Thack, Hazy, Kalis, and V Sizzle. Sean Thrilla and V Sizzle also did beats, and were very good. They were self contained when it came to making music, so it was easy fit for what I had going on, and the different writing styles and ideas was inspiring for my personal creativity. This song is one that did exactly that, when I heard this for the first time I was blown away, the way the hook works with the beat is perfect, they captured the mood perfectly for that beat, in my opinion. Phyr Squad consistently did that as songwriters, and it didn’t matter which one was on the track, they are all great songwriters. A great resource for me as a producer to have, and I greatly appreciate it.
We welcomed Phyr Squad into Soundvizion shortly after that, and wrote and recorded many great songs, and developed a great friendship. -by Monstalung
