“Consequences” is the debut EP by Richmond, California-based rapper Filthy Phil. Released in 1990 on Concerned Records, the album features four tracks of gritty, hardcore rap, with beats produced by Filthy Phil himself.
The EP showcases Filthy Phil’s raw and aggressive flow, as well as his ability to paint vivid pictures of street life and urban decay. Tracks like “The Payback” and “Player Haters” feature hard-hitting lyrics that explore the harsh realities of growing up in Richmond’s impoverished neighborhoods.
Despite its limited release, “Consequences” has become a sought-after collector’s item among fans of West Coast hip hop and underground rap. Filthy Phil’s unique style and uncompromising lyrics have earned him a dedicated following, and his influence can be heard in the music of many Bay Area rappers who followed in his footsteps.
While “Consequences” may not have achieved mainstream success, it remains an important piece of West Coast rap history, and a testament to the creativity and resilience of underground hip hop artists.
