After celebrating the release of his RFM LP with a sold-out crowd at The TLA a couple of months ago, local hip hop artist Chill Moody comes to The Blockley for another celebration – this time a celebration of love. Moody will team up once again with Beano and Hank McCoy to perform the last installment in their Valentine’s Day mixtape Who Do You Love? in its entirety. Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here. Below, watch them perform a track from the mixtape live in Love Park.
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.
Me and Hank were having an instagram battle the other day posting old “embarrassing” childhood photos of eachother (we’re 1st cousins), then my little cousin Toni (Hank’s sister) sent the picture with us two together and we instantly thought “album cover”. This is a collection of songs we’ve done together that date back to like 2006. Most songs were recorded in my basement, all produced by Hank McCoy. Enjoy
ps. we really can’t read cursive… long story
Last week, West Philadelphia rapper Chill Moody released Who Do You Love?, his third annual Valentine’s Day collaboration with producer Hank McCoy. This time, R&B vocalist Beano was recruited to add some melodic hooks to the mix. You can download the entire mixtape at Chill’s website, and get a taste in today’s Philly Local Phile with “What Took You So Long.” Its soul sample, sharp raps and romantic refrain are a trip back to the days of the Boomerang Soundtrack. Listen below, and catch Chill in concert at Silk City next Tuesday Feb. 28.
