Phillip T. Gardner (Phillie-G Tha Suave Gangsta) was born August 2nd, 1981 in Dexter, Missouri, Soon after, his mother moved to Sikeston, MO from Hayti, MO seeking a better environment to raise him in. They lived in poverty on the west side of Sikeston for most of his childhood & he was raised in the beliefs of Non-Denominational Christianity. With his single mo…ther always working 2 jobs & his father in prison, he found the inspiration needed to write poetry & dreamed that someday he would become a famous rap/hip-hop artist. In 4th grade he had a friend named Aimee Kimball that he rhymed & read his poetry to. She said that he would “be rich & famous one day”, and gave him the name, “Phillie-G”. Everyday since he’s given his songs his full effort. His writing often reflects events he’s actually lived through.
