Renowned Chicago DJ, DJ Pharris celebrates his birth day (Feb. 12) with a new Wiz Khalifa, Chance The Rapper and Rockie Fresh assisted offering titled “Everything New.”

So I wanted to make a song for that. Kinda like a soundtrack for people like me who like to cop new shit and look good. Once I got the Wiz hook, I sent it to Chance to lay his verse and then to Rockie. It all came together pretty fast.”
The collaboration will be included on DJ Pharris’ upcoming debut project, Coronation, which drops on March 12 via This Chicago Music Group.
