23 Apr West Philly rapper Chill Moody starting new record label
From the Philly Tribune:
“It’s only a week old at this point but I’m excited,” he said. “It’s always been my dream to put some kind of infrastructure here in Philly.” Moody said he grew tired of people asking if he felt it necessary to leave Philly in order to make it in the music industry. “I started taking offense to it because when you see artists from New York or Los Angeles being interviewed, they never ask them that question,” Moody said. “Philly being the fifth largest city in the country, it’s like — why would I have to leave the city to make it?” The answer is that, while Philadelphia produces great performers and artists, it lacks the infrastructure it once had during the days when producers like Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff of Philly International, led what is now called the Philadelphia Sound.
Philadelphia will have a new music label, thanks to West Philadelphia native and musical artist Chill Moody. Chill Moody has received accolades because of his music, creativity and philanthropy, and hopes to help other artists looking to break into a very tough and competitive industry.
