Is Philly the 2nd most important city to Hip-Hop?

I’m just speaking for me, not the blog but I also believe it’s a very legit question too. When you put it down on paper and realize all of the Philly legends, microphone masters, turntable technicians, classics hits and summer anthems it’s an argument worth making.

Obviously, NYC is number one but when you think about how Philly changed the game and continues to deliver the top talent what city/state takes its spot? L.A? Atlanta? Jersey? Houston? Detroit? Think about it…

Here are just some (not complete) of some Philly representatives.
