For Philly rapper Chill Moody, headlining the Theater of Living Arts on one of the last days in December was a high point of a tremendous year. In this seven-minute mini-documentary, we get a nice overview of the show. There’s the announcement to the cast and crew that the concert was sold out. There’s Chill’s very showman-like entrance from the lobby of the venue to the strains of “Bombs” from Freshman Take Cover. There’s backstage chats with Jakk Frost and others. Watch the documentary below, and catch Chill’s next local appearance – February 15 at The Blockley with his frequent R&B collaborator Beano. Tickets and more information can be found at the WXPN Concert Calendar.
Local rapper Chill Moody teamed up with Freeway for the grooving new track “Change Coming.” The song is included on Moody’s latest RFM album, which he previewed at his sold-out headlining gig at The TLA this past week. Stream and download the Joe Logic-produced song below, and check out Moody’s plans for 2013 in our interview with him here.
When we talked to Chill Moody in advance of his sold-out headlining show at the TLA last week, he let us in on some details about one of the tracks on his new album RFM (out digitally next week). “Change Coming” features a collaboration with legendary Philly rapper Freeway, who has served as something of a mentor to the emerging Philly rapper in recent years. Says Chill:
We’re always in the same venues; every time I’ve had a show for past year and a half, somebody else has always brought him on as a guest spot. So we got to talking, and he’s dropping jewels on me, telling me things about the industry. It’s very big brother / little brother.
The track has a nice bounce and a soulful refrain; stream it and download it below.
