Stitches by name, Stitches by nature. The craziest motherfucker in rap music?

RnB/Hip Hop | Thursday 29th October 2015 | Tom

He’s the 20 year old rapper from Miami, Florida that everybody is talking about, whether it’s his absurd lyrics, the AK47’s tattooed on his face or the fact that he has personally called out hip hop heavyweights, Stitches has gone viral. Born Phillip Kastabanis, Stitches or Lil Phil as he used to be known, claims to have used the money he has made selling drugs to fund a new career in rap.

Stitches has had a long association with the drugs trade and on the hook of his song ‘My Old Ways’, he claims that "If this rap shit don’t work, then it’s back to drug dealing…I’m going back to my old ways". This isn’t the first or last time Stitches has used lyrics that have been designed to shock, in fact it is a vital part of his image, an image that has allowed for his music to spread as aggressively as his appearance would suggest. Stitches is a product of the age of YouTube stars - combining shocking lyrics with even more shocking videos, he has created a unique thugged out image in the often violent landscape of American rap.

Recent works created by Stitches include a song entitled 'She’s A Liar’ in which he claims to have had intimate relations with Tyga’s girlfriend Kylie Jenner, and ‘I Smell Pussy’ where he disses West Coast icon The Game. Stitches won’t stop at his fellow rappers either, making unflattering videos about Donald Trump and Miley Cyrus.

However, Stitches is not without his admirers. Ed Sheeran was caught on camera praising the Florida rapper and Instagram star Dan Blitzerian famously features in his video ‘Bad Bitches’. Stitches is like Marmite; whether you love him or hate him you cannot help but talk about him. What the future has in store for Stitches is unknown but if he can build on his current successes then we may have to be shocked for a little while longer.
