The city of Brotherly Love has unified. Producer Dice Raw, best known for contributing to projects from Philly natives The Roots, is at the helm of the Philadelphia Historical remix of '100,' with legendary rapper Schoolly D (pictured), Three Times Dope's EST, Freeway and Philly's Most Wanted's Boo Bonic. Raw originally released '100' this past May. It was his first new single in nearly a decade.
"I was very fortunate to recently work with these extremely gifted artists," Dice Raw told AHH. "Anytime you get a group of guys in the studio with this caliber of talent you know they are going to give hip-hop fans something special."
The track, produced by R&S Music Group producer Rick Friedrich, boasts a grizzly electric guitar riff and splotchy synthesizers, with each emcee taking turns spitting a verse. Each artist represents a snapshot in Philadelphia rap history, with Schoolly D. repping as the father of gangster rap, EST holding it down for old school, Freeway fast-forwarding to the late '90s and Boo Bonic doing his thing as the newest cat of the bunch.
The Philadelphia Historical remix of '100' is currently available for purchase on iTunes.
