Influenced by New York rap at the time (Nas, Jay-Z, Biggie, Canibus, DMX), Midwest (Bone Thugs, Do or Die, Twista), and Southern rap (Outkast, Goodie Mob, Pastor Troy), he developed his style. He started his rap career by battling various artists in the area and never listening. In the fall of 2002, he dropped his first mixtape with his cousin Twin in their group Damacus Steel. The mixtape sold over 200 from school to school in the Prince William County. He did it again the following year with an upcoming DJ from Florida named DJ Hailo. The mixtape was called "PHZ-Sicks and DJ Hailo presents Signs Mixtape." On Feb. 1st, 2004, he won Teens Count Teen Talent Show hosted by Rane of WPGC 95.5. He was one of the first rappers to ever win the competition. For more information on PHZ-Sicks, please visit him at http://www.myspace.com/
