Philly Retrospective Volume 1

Hip hop in Philadelphia has a long and deep history. It was one of the 1st areas outside of New York to produce recorded hip hop. Checking ebay listings usually reveals a small number of Philadelphia releases at high prices. The city does get a fair amount of recognition and there are lots of Philadelphia artists who have made their way onto the national scene. Closer examination and constant research reveals a very prolific underground there. Many of the artists I’m going to feature in this 23-volume series were hardly heard or known about outside the city limits. This 1st volume is comprised of artists who are probably familiar for the most part, but stay tuned. Over a period of time, I will post 22 other Philadelphia compilations made up of the rarest/dopest gems I could find. You’re in for some surprises, so stay tuned!

Department of corrections:

After I finished this one, I discovered the Rasheed on track 12 is actually from Texas, and is not the same artist as Rasheed from Philadelphia. Woops. Hope y’all will forgive me for the mistake. Check back for updates, will be bringing you more of these compilations to your sound system soon.
