Phill Stroman grew up in Connecticut (about half an hour from the Bronx, NY) and got interested in what would become Hip Hop music in the late 70s. He started rhyming, deejaying, and collecting records in 1983 after moving to Harrisburg and then Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Phill dabbled in music production, associated with Cutting Records (as part of Devastating Two), Easy Street (under the name Baritone Tiplove) and In Effect Records as Phill Most Chill.
Phill started a comic strip ("True Urban Funnies") for Rap Sheet magazine in the nineties, which soon led to him writing about and interviewing the Hip Hop stars of the day. An interview with Pete Rock featured a sidebar that focused on the records that Pete sampled, and this gave birth to Phill's infamous "Soulman's World Of Beats" column which included monthly beat-lists. Enthusiastic readers' response via letters from fans from all over the world lead to an ever growing network of diggers and a growing reputation for Phill. He left Rap Sheet after 3-4 years but continued to make a living out of his obsession: On the one hand he began selling beats out of his explosively grown collection to break collectors and producers at the Roosevelt Hotel and the Marc Ballroom Soul/Disco record convention in New York in 1995/96. On the other hand he started a legendary series of beat tapes, called "Archaeologists Classics" which reached no less than 100 volumes and which did not only feature dope music but also very good cover art work, often based on covers of records included in the mixes.
After he retired the beat tapes he released approx. a dozen beat CDs. These gained a previously unknown distribution through his website www.worldofbeats.com and his contributions to now defunct magazines Big Daddy and Grandslam. Phill later also contributed to Wax Poetics magazine and can frequently be seen contributing to www.soulstrut.com (DR MANHATTIN) or flipping rare records on eBay (p.eugene). Though he has stopped updating his old website and a blog under the same name he now maintains three myspace pages and frequently blogs under the new headline "That Real Schitt".
