Philly Freestyle Videos

While it may appear that Philadelphia has absolutely no underground hip-hop scene to your random backpacker observer, this observation couldn’t be further from the truth. The “underground hip-hop” that is alive and well in Philadelphia isn’t one that congregates at random showcases and open-mikes in trendy areas of town, and you won’t see these dudes frequenting the Sage Francis and Aesop Rock concerts that pop-up every couple months. The Philadelphia underground rap scene is being dominated and documented by Freestyle DVDs that capture some of these up-coming folks on their blocks, or outside their studios, or randomly, coming out of Boston Market. Some folks have been kind enough to upload a bunch of this stuff to You Tube which is the best shit ever. Peep.
