Career[edit] Philips worked on staff at the Los Angeles Times fro m 1995 to 2008 after serving as a freelance contributor for the paper beginning in 1990. He has written for Rolling Stone, Spin, The Village Voice, The Washington Post, AllHipHop, the San Francisco Chronicle and Source.[3] He chronicled the music industry[4] as well as the entertainment industry in the late 1990s and early 2000s.[5] Richard D. Barnet and Larry L. Burriss credited Philips' continued reporting on sexual harassment in the music industry prompting other media outlets to cover the issue and "bringing sexual harassment in the music industry to a national forum."[6] Philips also covered art and crime, corporate and government corruption, and medical malfeasance. Philips stated that he saw a failure of the police and others to solve the crimes against black figures such as Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.[7][8][9] Ticketmaster congressional hearings[edit] In the early 1990s, Philips wrote a series of stories about Ticketmaster, reporting in 1994 that the rock band Pearl Jam had complained to the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice that Ticketmaster used monopolistic practices and refused to lower service fees for the band's tickets. The company had exclusive contracts with large US venues and threatened to take legal action if those contracts were broken.[10] Rap crime[edit] Philips reported on the East-West rap feud, including the unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur and Christopher Wallace a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G.. His 2002 article for the LA Times claimed that Shakur was killed in September 1996 by members of the Crips gang, hired by Wallace. Philips and fellow LA Times reporters wrote articles supporting the theory that Wallace was also killed by the Crips, six months later.[11] In March 2008, Philips wrote another LA Times article claiming that James "Jimmy Henchman" Rosemond, a hip-hop CEO, was an organizer of the attack on Tupac in 1994 at Quad Studios in New York. The story alleged that Smalls and others knew about the attack a week in advance, relying heavily on anonymous sources and internal FBI documents obtained by Philips. Soon after the article was published, The Smoking Gun revealed that Philips' FBI documents were fake. In April 2008, the LA Times printed a full retraction of the Quad Studios article and released Philips shortly thereafter during a wave of layoffs.[12] Philips blames the Times editors for forcing him to rely heavily on the fake FBI documents, and stands by the facts presented in his story as told to him by his unnamed sources. Philips stated that the retraction ruined his reputation and career.[11][12][13] June 2011, New York inmate Dexter Isaac, whom Phillips states was one of his anonymous sources, stated that Isaac had participated in the Quad Studios attack.[12] Philips told LA Weekly that he demanded a "front-page retraction" in the LA Times to clear his name.[12] The LA Times did not run any retraction. On September 13, 2012, the anniversary of Shakur's death, Philips announced he would do a "Twitter experiment," tweeting a 1,200-word article, 40 characters at a time, concurrently with the launch of his website, the Chuckphilipspost.com.[14] The article was about Harlem drug dealer Eric “Von Zip” Martin and his alleged connection to Sean "Diddy" Combs.[15]


Awards[edit] In 1999, Philips shared a Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting[16] with Michael Hiltzik of the Los Angeles Timesfor a year-long series that exposed corruption in the music business.[17][18] In 1996, he won the George Polk Award for investigative reporting about American black art and culture[2][19] and, in 1997, the National Association of Black Journalists Award for coverage of the rap music business.[2] In 1990, he won a Los Angeles Press Club award for stories about censorship.[2]


Personal life[edit] Philips grew up in the Detroit, Michigan area and moved to Los Angeles at 19.[1] He worked for the Wasserman Silk Screen Company of Santa Monica, California while studying at California State University, Long Beach, where he received a B.A. in journalism in 1989.[20]
