The 8Th Annual Philly Hip Hop Awards Take Place this Saturday!
Hip hop is officially the most popular genre in the world. However, what you may not be aware of is the critical role that Philly has played throughout the history of this form of musical expression. From MCing to Djing, Bboying, and Graf writing, Philly artists have heavily influenced each of the four cornerstones of hip hop. To recognize the past and current influencers of the Philly hip hop scenes, local author and entrepreneur Jimmy DaSaint founded the Philly Hip Hop Awards 8 years ago and it has progressively gotten bigger each year.
