Pharaoh Santana Extended Hefner’s Legacy with His Latest Soulfully Smooth Hit ‘Playboy’

By  | 

LA-hailing up and coming hip hop artist Pharaoh has added versatility to the airwaves since releasing their debut EP ‘AGAPE’ in 2014.
With their soul-driven approach to hip hop which doctors in smooth layers of neo-soul & RnB, it wasn’t long before fans of connectable lyrics and contemporary vibes made his tracks playlist staples.

There are nuanced nods to the likes of Drake, Mick Jenkins and Isaiah Rashad in his latest track, ‘Playboy’, but the lyrical flair well and truly puts Pharaoh Santana in a league of their own.
Each syllable carries weight and sincerity as Pharaoh Santana imparts his humbled and hard-fought-for wisdom, affirming that his introspection is more than worth listening to in the subversively mindful track. Instead of playing up to stereotypes, Playboy embodies Pharaoh Santana’s mentality which centres around being authentic, avoiding moulds and letting haters hate.

Pharaoh Santana has been prolific with his releases since making their debut, but they’ve also found plenty of time to join the likes of Murs & 9th Wonder on stage and perform at Webster Hall in NYC. They’ve thrived on the radio-waves; BBC 1xtra, Capital Xtra, Mi Soul Radio, In Demand Radio, Real-Buzz Radio and Big City Radio are just a few of the international stations to have played his tracks.

He will be following on from Playboy with his forthcoming EP ‘PSP’, due to drop later this month.
