Philo & Crates are two Sac artists I’ve come know through the homies in Control The Famous. The two met in high school in Northern California. After discovering each other’s respective talents, they began creating music together in late 2009. Philo holds down the rhymes through mind-bending lyricism and a unique flow that sets him apart from most emcees. Crates began making beats at a young age. His productions are soulful and hard-hitting, providing a cohesive backdrop to Philo’s style.

“Crystal Chandeliers” is a track designed to embody emotions of a man trying to find light in the darkness. It is laced with anxiety, hopefulness, doubt and expectation on a journey through a mind that is full of question and fear.

We’ve got the video Philo & Crates’s “Crystal Chandeliers” below. Check it out.

I grew up in Sacramento in a time where there was no young entertainment company like HOF to look up to. I met Tony in LA while I was managing LBCK in Long Beach. I kind of knew Damian from middle school. And I didn't know Byron even though we went to the same middle school. But when we first started partying together in 2011, it just made sense for me...someone who's passionate about the business side of music...to align with them...who're passionate about the business side of events. I believe what I'm doing here...running the site and the social media and the artist management/publicity and the label...is creating a means to better spotlight and support the emerging artists we truly believe in. They say no one's ever "made it" out of Sacramento. It's my ultimate mission to change that. As our boy Marcus says, "We're bringing Sacramento to The World...and we're bringing The World to Sacramento."
