Today, Chicago rapper, entertainer and storied ink artist Phor has released his latest project, Lightning Bug, a 13-track outing which sets out to make him one of the most respected talents in the Chicago industry. Late last year, Phor found success as a reality TV star, appearing on VH1’s ratings-shattering Black Ink Crew: Chicago. But Phor’s rap career long predates the show, and he’s ready to share his other other skill with the rest of the world.
