Hailing from Seattle, PHNK [pronounce ‘funk’] produces all of his tracks and consistently releases them with appealing visuals. Some time ago, we featured his colorful offering for ‘Bad Habit‘ and today, once again, there is something happening with his new track. Of course, PHNK is not the greatest vocalist alive but it doesn’t mean that he is not an artist. He raps, he signs the production and he clearly has an interesting artistic approach: colorful visuals and catchy tracks with a message. With ‘Hey Boy,’ the artist raises question about gender stereotypes, diversity and sex positivity. Like many of us, he wonders what it is to be a boy. It’s not always easy not to verify all the conditions that are imposed by our society but like the artist does it, it’s the right solution to be positive about it! Check the Brandon Foy and Annie Johnston-directed video below.
