Meet Phillip Cordell, alter ego: HiPhi. By day, heâ€™s an AV integrator at Multimedia Masters in Nashville, Tenn. By night, heâ€™s a techno rapping phenom with his own record label, HiPhidelity, and a video producer in conjunction with the production company I Love Betty.
Rapping for almost 12 years (itâ€™s in his blood, he tells me), Cordell is best known within the industry for his rap â€œA/V Professional,â€? which is approaching 9,000 views on YouTube. Standing in a warehouse full of Crestron, Extron, and Pesa boxes, he raps his day job and the wonders and frustrations of wielding the BNC crimper, waiting â€œa whole weekâ€? for the PC to boot, and catching up on his CTS.
â€œSignal ran through it/The man he can do it/Trying to hide wires as I grab the Panduit/If and only if and I cannot fish the wall/Iâ€™m sorry, I was on a ladder when I missed your call.â€?
