postcard-3-copy_phixrWith the ever-evolving genre known as Hip-Hop comes the new breed of artist that doesn’t play by the same set of rules.

Instead, they make their own manual, and ending up forging a separate path to recognition, which allows them to keep the creative wheels of Hip-Hop turning enough for other acts to also be inspired to try something new.

This time around the artists who are writing their own script are the duo of Physha P.

Comprised of high school friends Arman “Bebe Boohgz” Dixon and Semu “Wa Peace” Walusimbi, the twosome from Upstate New York plan on carving a niche for themselves, while being innovative in the process.

With their song ‘Do What You Do’ making its way around the college radio circuit along with mainstream outlets, not to mention an appearance on BET’s 106 & Park, hopefully it won’t be long before they’re credited with forming a new chapter in Hip-Hop.

As for now, they both come together and share their thoughts on music, and the expectations they have for themselves…

iHipHop.com: How did you guys first come together as a group?

Bebe Boohgz: Basically we started out in high school, and we didn’t like each other believe it or not, we actually hated each other…

It was kind of like two elephants in the room, and we didn’t like each other, and then we just came together for the love of music, and then rest is history… We had more in common than we actually thought…

iHipHop.com: Is there a story behind the group name you picked out?

Wa Peace: Honestly it’s an inside joke, but what we want the people to know is that “Physha P” is essence of innovation… It’s all about being yourself, and going to the limits in terms of being whom you can be…

Bebe Boohgz: Yeah, basically don’t be scared to do what you do… So that’s what “Physha P” means, and that’s what it stands for… Just being yourself just like Wa [Peace] just said…

iHipHop.com: How is the chemistry between you two? Is there a lot of compromise involved?

Bebe Boohgz: It’s crazy because when we get together, it’s like none other… We just bring a crazy presence when we get together, and the chemistry is just crazy…

It’s like one of those things where you have to experience it for yourself, because it’s really hard to explain… But what really keeps us together is the fact that we have a mutual respect for each other’s ideas…

Wa Peace: We bring two different spectrums together, and it’s amazing… It’s something that can only be defined as “next level Hip-Hop.”

iHipHop.com: Is that how would you describe your music to someone who wasn’t familiar with it? Next level Hip-Hop?

Bebe Boohgz: Yeah, basically we’d say next level Hip-Hop… We don’t want to use the game as a hustle, because we came in as fans, and we feel like we have something to offer to the game…

Right now Hip-Hop seems like it’s all about bringing down the next man, “You’re not as flashy as I am, you’re not as fly as I am, if you don’t have this money then you’re not doing it like me.”

Wa Peace: It’s all about the money hustle, when it should be about the love of Hip-Hop… We’re doing this for the love, so that alone will bring us anything that we want… So I think that’s what separates us from a lot of artists…

postcard-4-copy_phixriHipHop.com: How did you guys first catch a buzz?

Bebe Boohgz: We both ended up going to college, and I went to Sacred Heart University… Just the college scene in general got our names out there, and it helped us out because we met people from all different places…

Then we had a mutual friend who knew someone who was down with Da Fam Entertainment, which is the independent label we’re signed to now… Then we got a call from them two weeks later, and they wanted to meet with us…

But they couldn’t work with us at that time, because they were already invested in another artist… So a year later we’re still grinding, and they hit us up and wanted to know if we wanted work…

iHipHop.com: Right now a lot of people in Hip-Hop are doing the same thing, you guys aren’t worried about being TOO different for what’s going on at the moment?

Bebe Boohgz: Not at all…

Wa Peace: In essence, anybody that ever came out had an original feel… When Missy came out, she and Timbaland brought this unique force with them… They weren’t trying to copy or emulate whatever else was going on…

Bebe Boohgz: Plus just like we said earlier, we have something to offer the game, because we’re Hip-Hop fans before anything… Before we got into music, we listened to music… We don’t want to come is as another name, we want to come in with something to offer…

iHipHop.com: How do you guys go about song structure? Do you write separately, together, bounce ideas off each other, etc.?

Bebe Boohgz: It’s both… We write together, and we bounce ideas off each other… Since we went to separate colleges, we did a lot of stuff over the phone, and we sent each other beats back and forth… Then we would get together over the breaks, and record them…

Wa Peace: Honestly, when we’re in the studio, we just jam out… We have the most fun as possible, and we make this natural and organic music…

Bebe Boohgz: We don’t try to force anything, because when you do that, the vibe isn’t right… That’s when you’re trying too hard, and that’s something that you never want to do…

iHipHop.com: When it’s all said and done, what do you want people to take away from your music?

Wa Peace: I want them to take us home… I want them to take away the fact that we’re just like you, and we’re just like them… In this crazy world, we’re just like you… So we’re going to supply you with music filled with the different emotions that you go through on a day-to-day basis…
