Streets Dept Podcast, Episode 8: Chill Moody Talks Hip-Hop, Politics, and Reviving Philly’s Music Industry

January 16, 2018

Welcome to the 8th episode of the Streets Dept Podcast!

Today I’m joined by West Philly-based hip-hop artist, Chill Moody. Chill is without a doubt one of the top lyricists to hit Philadelphia in years. In fact, he was even named “Best Rapper” in Philadelphia Magazine’s annual Best Of issue back in 2014.

In addition to his breakthrough music career, Chill is also a businessman, a beer-maker, and Philadelphia’s official Music Ambassador working with The City to create pathways and connections for up-and-coming talent to work and thrive in Philly. His ultimate goal, to return Philly to its former status as a music mecca.
