Specially curated by Demel Michael, Audiomack is proud to present the Hometown Heroes of Philadelphia.
Philadelphia goes hard for Philadelphia. If it’s Philly-based, the city will ride for its sports stars and artists without question. Example: the overwhelming support for Meek Mill before and after his release from prison. Of course, Philly goes hard for good reason: some of rap’s best wordsmiths (Black Thought, Bahamadia) hail from Philadelphia and have changed rap as we know it. Now, a new wave of Philly rappers are taking over and moving music forward.
Specially curated by Demel Michael, Audiomack is proud to present the Hometown Heroes of Philadelphia. Working in artist management, Michael has an eye for talent and a special awareness of what it takes for an artist to break and sustain a career. He’s brought all of these talents to this playlist, highlighting Philly in every possible light.
Featuring Tierra Whack, Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert, and more, this playlist showcases the starpower and variety that Philly has to offer. We have the rockstar that is Lil Uzi Vert appearing alongside the most exciting new artist from Philadelphia: Tierra Whack, whose inventive cadences and use of Instagram have made her the most innovative new artist in 2018. Of course, what would a Philly playlist be without the city’s lionheart, Meek Mill? We’ve also got Bri Stevens holding it down for Philly’s R&B scene. Press play to hear how Philly is moving music forward!
