Raising the Stakes

Pokafase risks taking Phoenix hip-hop on the road

AZ Mike Mill, "What Up Doe": "What do you know about keeping it gangsta, homeboy?" rhymes Mill on this single, released by Big Feve Entertainment. Judging from the clichés, our guess is that the producers of this record don't really know the answer to that question themselves. Must admit, though, that it iskinda cool to hear a pimp "rollin' west down Indian School" on a hip-hop song. Phoenix definitely isn't hurting for quality cruising strips, and these guys at least capture that spirit. A promotional copy of the single contains four versions, including one done a cappella. It also includes snippets of three other low-riding songs, all of which, curiously enough, seem much more promising and original than "What Up Doe." -- By Christopher O'Connor
