ear candy from the boston underground


Boston is one of those east coast cities that’s a bit of an enigma. Although it’s not far from the epicenter of New York, Beantown isn’t known nationally for its hip hop scene. Of course there are a few notable exceptions but the hip hop output of the city was mostly distributed and recognized locally. After a few years of searching earnestly, my boston collection is modest at best. Nonetheless, there are some amazing gems and I want to share them here. Here are a couple boston compilations I put together.The 1st one I did back in 2006, the 2nd one I did earlier this year. Hope everyone likes these, thanks for checking us out here at the Philaflava blog!

    Good stuff. Funny to hear a big slice of Boston from an outsider's ear. A bunch of these are local faves of mine. We recently did a night at my weekly devoted to Boston hip-hop. Look out for Pace Foster's history lesson, coming soon. Check out this vintage radio rip to hear a pre-Premo Guru in fine form –
