Rap City: No, Not the BET Show

Monday, June 11th, 2012


This 1988 documentary about the Philadelphia hip-hop scene originally aired on PBS channel 12 WHYY-TV. Co-Produced by filmmakers Glen Holsten and Lisa Marie Russo, it features Illadelph rap pioneers Lady B, Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Schoolly D, DJ Code Money, Yvette Money and super-producer Joe “The Butcher” Nicolo. The doc resurfaced as a three-part video on Youtube in December 2010, was presented by ego trip at a March 2011 screening at Maysles Cinema in Harlem, and was shown again in August 2011 at L’Etage as part of the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts.

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

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

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…
