Growing up in Philly, it was inevitable that you were exposed to Hip-Hop. For those who were drawn to it, the love affair began and the culture grew. Since 1973, Hip-Hop grew from B-Boys, Beat Boxing and DJs to an art form relatable to everyone. The 1990s gave way to a generation of people who could appreciate Hip-Hop as an art form rather just a commercial entity because artists from NWA and Snoop to A Tribe Called Quest and Nas could co-exist. There wasn't one sound and people could hear different artists on local radio stations.
Coors Light and Power 99 would like to introduce The Movement, to give the mic to 13 local emcees and introduce the collective of real Hip-Hop artists that exists in the city. The Underground Summer Series, featuring 13 local artist performances, live in our performance studio, will take place over the 13 weeks of summer.
OCD members, Moosh and Twist, grew up in West Philadelphia and Center City, respectively. They grew up together, and their love for music goes back as far as skipping class in middle school to go off to the music room to play drums and piano. Once in high school, they kept in touch, and after influences like Outkast and Kanye West started to play their part, they formed the group OCD.
In the short time they have been visible in Philly, OCD dropped two mixtapes, Never Never Land and Up Before the World. Videos for "City Kids," and "Wake Up" off of the most recent mixtape, Up Before the World, have gained the group a major YouTube following.
This year, OCD was invited to perform at the 4th annual Roots Picnic. The Uncapped Stage also featured Young Vipers, Donn T, T. Mills, Nicos Gin, Hanks & Cupcakes, Man Man, Black Thought and J Period, Mac Miller and Yelawolf.
