I have to wonder, what was it like growing up in Massachusetts with the name, Philly. Knowing what I know about the state, I couldn’t imagine his childhood around rabid Celtics fans made it easier to be named Philly. Despite this, the man made it out and produced some of the most refreshing music the region has to offer right now with his new project, Wop Talk.
At 9-tracks, Wop Talk is dense in content and jam-packed with fun times. On, “Speed Racer”, the Braxton native displays his ability to speed up his cadences and wordplay without sounding rushed, while on songs like, “Baby” he slows it down a bit more to have some fun with his words.
Overall, Wop Talk is a solid outing from Philly, and an emphatic way to get on our radar. Check out the project below and let us know what you think.
