Been wanting to knock out a 90’s hip-hop mix forever. Hard to start because its so intimidating to do a tracklist. My peoples that do the Decades Hat Co. asked me to contribute a mix to commemorate their 19XX hat release, and thats all the motivation I needed. Stoked on this mix. A lot of obvious tracks on here, but a lot of this music is now 20 years old, kind of cool at this point to throw some of the bigger joints on a mix.
Shout out to my Philly peoples The Decades (Brooks and Puggs) for always progressing their hustle and keeping things moving in a positive manner. From FreshMeltWater to this hat thing now I’m happy to know people achieving their goals and putting on for Philly.

We’re a bit late with the 1st & 15th again, but suck it up… it was Labor Day weekend and, frankly, we’re adults so we got real life schitt to handle… DEAL WITH IT! This time around, your boy Blizzy is back with more of that wig splitting Philly rap music. He and I did the now classic Philly Love Volume 1 several years ago to much fan-fare, so this is a much needed return to form. Featuring classics, rarities, and favorites from all corners of the city and beyond. Download it below, stream it above, and don’t ever forget that you can stream the rest of the 1st & 15th mixes here (or download them all individually here). As always, thanks so much for listening!

Its somewhat of a rite of passage for Philly rappers to get their first spot on the Come-Up Show. Chill Moody got his chance to rock it a couple weeks ago and took full advantage of the opportunity. Dude murdered this beat medley. Kev was clearly impressed. Besides being a dope rapper, Chill is a thorough, humble dude. We wish him the best at Crossfaded Bacon.
That hardbody Philly rap from the living legend Meek Mill on top of Jahlil Beat’s updated Philly sound. In my eyes, Jahlil does a great job of re-interpreting and updating the percussion heavy Philly style of production popularized in the late 80s and early 90s by Tuff Crew, Schoolly D, and Steady B. And thankfully Meek hasn’t slowed down at all since he teamed up with Ross and them. Beastly! As always, shout out to All Flamerz on the look.
