Thomas Weeks aka Pharaoh Saint is not your typical artist. He labels himself a conscience artist who is multitalented in various genres of music. Pharaoh has always been into music but did not start working in the music field and writing his own material until 2007-2008. In 2010 he went on to record a plethora of freestyles and songs over different industry artist beats such as Lil Wayne, Dorrough, Danity Kane and much more. As the years went on Pharaoh continued to write but it wasn’t until the year 2016 that he was able to finally release his first official mixtape Blasphemy: The gospel according to me. This mixtape was one of his most successful projects to date that was met with high acclaim by his small number of fans. On November 30th in 2019 Pharaoh Saint released his debut EP Strange Fruit on all major platforms which touched on the injustice against African American’s, police brutality, racism and the recent controversies on Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby and much much more. On May 12, 2020 Pharaoh released his first single of the year titled Who Gone Stop Me to start his year off with a bang and leave everybody wondering... Just who really can stop him.
