Thee Phantom & The Illharmonic Orchestra

Jun 10, 2018

Thee Phantom, born Jeffrey McNeill, wrote his first rhyme at the age of 8 and made his first beat by
mixing the instrumental from the Beastie Boys' Paul Revere with Beethoven's Fifth Symphony at age 12.
The particular movement of Beethoven's 5th entitled, "Destiny", would prove to be both ironic and foretelling
for the young musician.


In 2002, Phantom became the first Hip-Hop artist to perform at Philadelphia's prestigious Kimmel Center with musical accompaniment from members of the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia.
