Top Philly Rappers
Some of the early pioneers of Philly’s music scene contain the legends of Jazz Fresh, MC Breeze, Tuff Crew, Parry P, MC Sport and numerous of others. Another pioneer, who some can make the case for was the first of his kind, is Schoolly D. Peaking throughout the 1980s and early 1990s is one of the first true Hip Hop artists to venture into the genre of Gangsta Rap.
The huge rap battle scene once played an important part into the history of Philly Rappers as one can see the career of Cassidy or old clips of Meek Mill with the braids, before he became a platinum selling artists and highly respected in the mainstream.
The era of State Property, as well other artists like Eve, would bring new light into the city with the selling of millions of records and solidifying a new generation of the Philadelphia Hip Hop scene as this era was the most successful due to the national attention the era received.
Today, Meek Mill is one of the biggest Hip Hop artists in the game, and probably the biggest ever to come out of Philly, while other rappers like PNB Rock and Lil Uzi Vert are helping to continue the success of the city.
