Chadwick Phillips

I am a renaissance man within the world of the arts. I am a hip-hop artist, director, producer, song-writer, motivational speaker and educator. I graduated from Michigan State University in 2006 with a Bachelors in Communications. While living in New York City I  was in film for BET News, CBS, MTV and NYC Fashion week . Upon moving to the Twin Cities I hosted the legendary “Poet’s Groove” open mic in Minneapolis for 2 and a half years along with many high profile events throughout the Twin Cities. I am the CEO/Founder of “The Avant Garde” LLC which is a Twin Cities based music, arts and production company. I am also the founder of the youth program “Hip-Hop, History and The Arts” that I teach at schools all around the Twin Cities. I am also the host of the Tuesday night weekly open-mic entitled “Eclectica”. I will be releasing my debut album entitled “To Remain” in 2018.
