Aquil, Writtenhouse, head up ridiculously great hip-hop lineup at Silk City tonight

If you’re not already tapped in to how vibrant and exciting the Philadelphia hip-hop scene is, tonight’s formidable lineup at Silk City could be your school. Headlined by smooth-jam philosopher Aquil (pictured), it also features the old-school flavor of Afloe and the futuristic sounds of Sëla, the production powerhouse of Writtenhouse, the fierce cold cuts of Yahzilla, Electric Lady and her haunting vocal stylings, and Arkatron and his sampler-instrumental alchemy. Listen to tracks and watch videos from each below, and get ready to party. Aquil, Afloe, Writtenhouse, Sëla, Yahzilla, Electric Lady and Arkatron play Silk City Diner, 425 Spring Garden St., tonight beginning at 9 p.m. Tickets to the 21+ show are $5.
