Meet Phillip Cordell, alter ego: HiPhi. By day, he’s an AV integrator at Multimedia Masters in Nashville, Tenn. By night, he’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 (it’s in his blood, he tells me), Cordell is best known within the industry for his rap “A/V Professional,� 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 “a whole week� for the PC to boot, and catching up on his CTS.

“Signal 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/I’m sorry, I was on a ladder when I missed your call.�
