West Philly rapper Chill Moody announced today that he and his crew of collaborators – singer Beano, production guru Hank McCoy – would perform their entire Who Do You Love? collaboration in its entirety (and backed by a live band, Band for Higher) at Love Park in Philadelphia on Friday Sept. 28 at noon. “Think MTV Unplugged meets VH1 storytellers meets #nicethingsTV,” wrote Chill in a blog post today.
yesterday we went uptown for the first rehearsal. this is the first time any of us has heard this band play any of these songs. we weren’t like nervous, cuz we are familiar with Band For Higher they play for like everybody, but we were def anxious to see how things would turn out. needless to say we were pleased.
the show is going to be amazing. figuring out all the transitions is going to be the most difficult part, but i think we got it.
Check out footage from the rehearsal below. The show on Sept. 28 is free, open to the public, and will be followed by a 1 p.m. set.
