    Im sure you young ass lil dwayne stans dont know nothin about no damn Heavy D, but Joel could be his little nephew or someshit.

    skrate up.

  18. CiCi The Intern Says:

    hey AD … *hugs*

    Who’s the king of Philly? Really … no one. Every major Philly MC is taking Ls at this point, plus no one is really standing out. You’ll always have Gillie, Millz, Jihad, whatever member of State Prop wants to drop something.

    If I had to say who was “on top” right now, I would say Gillie but if this State Prop 3 actually surfaces, who knows …

    Gillie stays heavy in the streets. That’s what puts him on top with I guess, with your typical hip-hop dudes here. Me, personally, Beans will always be on top with me but for anyone to come out and say they run Philly, that’s a gross overstatement … nobody “runs” Philly right now …

    Man, fuck work. I didnt even go to lunch today. I lost.

    On another note, Gillie’s been doing his thing for a minute in Philly, but if you dont live there you’d never know. I remeber visiting my cousins in Philly in ’98 and the ONLY thing popping was that Major Figgas mixtape. After that, Beanie had that Cosmic Kev joint. I was always envious (pause) because Baltimore never had local MC’s that actually mattered to the average man on the street.
