While associations between the idea of the inner city and that of country clubs may not be immediately recognizable, it all makes sense in the context of local hip-hop’s elite. Inner City Country Club is a project that features collaborations between Philadelphia’s finest talents (rappers, singers, musicians, producers, etc…), embodying the theme of brotherly love.

This Sunday, we’ll see it in action as up-and-coming rappers Pooda Dappa, Chase Allen, and STS share the stage at Silk City in Northern Liberties. Pooda Dappa’s Take Notes EP hit the web in the earlier half of last year while STS dropped quite a few new videos in the latter half from his upcoming project. Allen opened for DMX last summer at The Blockley and released his new album D.A.R.K. in February. Get tickets here.

The Made In Philly Festival provides an all-local answer to Made in America at The Blockley August 30th

aktivepics-14-of-201Noticing that no Philadelphia artists were featured on this year’s Made In America lineup, promoter Earl Chandler collaborated with DJ Aktive to throw their own festival. Made In Philly features 17 up-and-coming hip-hop, R&B and pop names including Bones, Jade Alston, Chase Allen, and Frenchie. It goes down at The Blockley on August 30; that’s the night before Made in America kicks off, so you’ll be able to take in the best of both worlds. Find tickets and more information about the festival’s lineup here. Watch Bones’ video for “You Wear It Well” below.
