Tucked away in a parking garage in the heart of West Philly, in a living room-sized studio next to the rehearsal space of a thrash-metal band, you’ll find the headquarters of some of Philly’s best party people.
The TLA will host a massive lineup headlined by Chicago rapper Cheif Keef as well as seven other performers tonight. The 17 year old hip-hop artist, who is the CEO and founder of the Chicago label Glory Boys Entertainment, released his highly anticipated debut Finally Rich this past Tuesday through Interscope Records and GBE. Cheif Keef rocketed to fame earlier this year with his viral hit, “I Don’t Like,” and the subsequent remix on G.O.O.D. music’s Cruel Summer. The guest line-up, consisting of exclusively Philadelphia hip-hop artists, includes Blonde Gang (recently featured in JUMP Magazine), Lee Mazin, Ar-AB, Young Savage, Ground Up and Tiana Victoria. For tickets and more information you can visit the event page located here. Below is a video from Keef’s new album for the track “Love Sosa.”
Tonight, WXPN and Jump Magazine welcome an all-Philly show with Nicos Gun, Grandchildren, Prowler, DRGN KING, and Ed Blammo to the Blockley at 8 p.m. Tickets to the 21+ show are $9 in advance and $12 at the door and can be purchased here.
