Philadelphia – Home of The Greatest DJ Songs Ever

Nobody is messing with Philly when it comes to DJ’s…well at least they weren’t in the late 80’s. Here are nine examples of exactly why I’m obsessed with this here rap shit. It wasn’t the rhymes or the beats that first got me hooked – it was the cuts!

Actual DJ tracks > songs about DJ’s.

DJ Cash Money – ‘The Music Maker’

DJ Too Tuff – ‘Deuce, Ace Housin”

DJ Too Tuff – ‘Behold The Detonator’

DJ Jazzy Jeff – ‘Jazzy’s In The House’

DJ Jazzy Jeff – ‘Hip Hop Dancers Theme’

DJ Code Money – ‘It’s Krak’

DJ Code Money – ‘Code’s Megamix’

DJ Woody Wood – ‘Who Is This’

DJ Tat Money – ‘Rockin’ Music’

I don’t know what’s going on but you must be a mindreader or something. I was in the process of compiling DJ tracks for a post at my site next week but you beat me to it. DJ tracks have always been my favorite tracks on albums. Jazzy Jeff and Cash Money were DJ gods here in Philly when I was growing up.

Seeing Tat Money dj live at the Apollo was a near religious experience; he made Kwame’s show that night ten times better than King Sun’s.

These are some nice examples of the-PHILLY REIGN of DJ KINGS,but where is-“SUPERNIGGER”by DJ CODE MONEY from SCHOOLLY’S:AM I BLACK ENOUGH FOR YOU?

It’s KRAK!! I once played this and a sucka asked if it was DJ Shadow. I wish groups would still give the DJ a track. I loved all of these. Also Moe Luv had a couple of nice joints.

Philly always had the best dj tracks. Honorable mention to Grand Dragon KD, always loved his cuts on ‘Bring the beat back’.
