Phillip Reed, also known as Mage1X or Crooked Pastor, is a multi-talented individual who is dedicated to living with integrity and making a positive impact on others. He wears many hats as an artist, author, credit specialist, producer, rapper, songwriter, and public speaker. His wide range of creative skills includes making tabletop role-playing game maps, drawing portraits and comic-cartoon style artwork, creating acrylic paintings, and crafting clothing and toys through crochet.

In the realm of music, Phillip explores various styles, with a primary focus on Rap and R&B. He humbly acknowledges that he has room for improvement in his craft and considers himself a perpetual beginner, always striving for growth. He is committed to personal development in emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, and financial aspects.

Phillip is grateful for the support of his fans and patrons, which allows him to pursue his artistic endeavors without the challenges of being a starving artist.

Additionally, he has a passion for making hand-dipped incense, a skill he has honed since 1998. His incense is known for its potent aroma and slow-burning quality, and they can be found online at
