Though not fully active as a DJ today, Richard M. Boos has undeniably
made his mark in music history and people who speak of it are not crazy. In 1994, as a teenager, this individual created a
battery powered system to perform a 3 hour DJ set at Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn NY in honor of a co-worker who was leaving
for bigger and better things. Using his graffiti tag name, Spoke, Richard met a man who would become a legend of music
in his own right by the name of Frankie Robo (also known as Roboe). These two DJ's created some of the most talked about mix
tapes of their time. Together with M.C. Too Tall who was briefly using his regular name, they formed a music trio called Puttin'
Headz Out in honor of all three men's direct affiliation with the Avenue U Boys. P.H.O. was known for it's cutting
edge mix tapes which included several genres of music with the occasional rap verses by Too Tall and two the underground classic
songs, "Live From Steeplechase Park" (1996) and "Bring The Drama" (1998). Shortly thereafter, P.H.O. disbanded
and pretty much remained a dead project until 2014.
Spoke made his last mix tape sometime in the late 90's and retired in 2000 but since Richard M. Boos AKA D.J. Spoke supports
and endorses the music and ways of M.C. Too Tall, he agreed to appear on several of M.C. Too Tall's songs in his solo project
including, "$10 Bill" off his "Killa-Killa Outpost" album which was released in the summer of 2010.
the summer of 2014, with the blessings of both Spoke and Robo, M.C. Too Tall brought back P.H.O. as a project and working
mainly with Spoke, Too Tall put together the first original P.H.O. recorded material in 16 years. It was a 5 track EP titled
"For The Streets" which was released October 9, 2014. Today D.J. Spoke helps with some mixing and sound bytes for
the newly resurfaced P.H.O. and also does some promotional work for Crowned Eagle Entertainment. P.H.O. is back and so is
the D.J. Spoke!
