Best of Philly DVD Raps: Download HERE

Public Service Announcement- Philly got the BEST spitters, dead or alive. Period. FACT.

Yo, this is not a comprehensive list of the BEST Philly Rap DVD freestyles (a LOT of the Touch Money, Headshot, and From Da Muscle DVDs are not online, smh.), and I didn’t put some of the larger freestyles (Kaboom vs Steele, NH vs T-Rex, and Reed Dollaz vs Kaboom are right there for your listening pleasure), and just sitting here I found THIS, THIS, and THIS but overall, this 30 track compilation is probably the most accurate representation of the Philly RAP DVD scene (Not Battles— and yea, there is a difference, and a massive one at that), which was, and still is, thriving in the city.

Be clear, the DVD’s STARTED in Philly. Niggas in Philly was scooping dvds, bagging up, and smoking out as niggas went from hood to hood, found the best (or worst in some cases) rappers, gave em a beat (or not), and let em spit— this actually went further the homemade mixtapes artists were pushing, as putting a face to a name or rhyme went further in developing a rappers brand than any mixtape could at the time. The DVD’s promoted the beef, the tension, and the squashed more careers than any diss song could—- FACT.

Anyway, this is missing some of the best Touch Money (Bricks, Caution Mally Franks, NH, Pook Papers, Kaboom) freestyles, the bul MPEE, Frankie Wit Da Grippas, and a couple others who were mainstays on the DVDs during this period (2005-2007), which I consider the golden-era of the DVDs. You had Star (2 Raw From The Streets) as the unquestioned leader— his DVDs had better sound, he had the best rappers (Rico, Peedi, Reed, Chic, Vodka, Ness, etc), and had the best presentation, and you had everyone else. Upstart “labels” Like Headshot Records, Papa Chasa’s, and Touch Money Records released their own DVD’s catering to their own artists, and then you had independent niggas with cameras who pushed their own product.

Whatever— Download, enjoy, and don’t get pissed at me about the sound quality— these freestyles are pulled DIRECTLY from the DVDs, so the sound is as they were when they were recorded. (Don’t front on that Jay Bezel Freestyle either– he BODIED his jawn)

JihaD

Note: Don’t ask me where State Property is— them niggas didn’t get on the DVD’s unless it was on some interview shit. Only Peedi spit on the DVD’s heavy.

Note 2: Wonder why the figgas ain’t on here? Its cuz this was around the the time SP and MF were beefing heavy (ya know, with Neef getting Spade-O bagged, Dutch riding around trying to kill them niggas, and basically, they stopped rapping and went to the guns, smh.)

    Nah, Gil and Sig never squared up (Knox and Sig did, with Knox knocking Sig out). Neef snitched on Spade after they got into a fight at a club.

    XXL: Were you straight writing verses for Wayne, or was it more of a coaching thing?

    Gillie: No, Wayne had good breath control, so it was really more of a study thing.

  21. Jihad what’s up with Slaughterico does he have any mixtapes you can get on the internet or anything I’ve got some best of joint but it doesn’t seem like anything he put together though.

  25. not. definitely not. like them shits made a come back a decade ago when Pharrell was rockin the trucker hat in the Shake Ya Ass vid. then Von Dutch killed the snap. so, with that said, them joints wasn’t supposed to even surface again for like another seven or eight years. . . at the very earliest. i could be wrong though.

    ^^
    Definitely agree with the Von Dutch ruining shit but some of the latest Mitchell & Ness joints are actually kinda decent, no? Tbh they look pretty much the same as some fitteds, just with a lil bit more graphics on them. I fucks with ’em, so I bought 8.
