In case you haven’t noticed, this little thing called hip-hop is a pretty big deal.  If you live in America and were born between the years of 1970 and 2000, it’s inevitable that hip-hop has influenced your life in some form or fashion--from the way you dress to the way you think.

Since the summer began, local station Power 99 has provided a platform for some of Philly’s best underground hip-hop artists via its online performance series called The Movement.

The Movement showcases artists who are considered to be the “B-side” of hip-hop.  The side of the genre that doesn’t get played on traditional radio.  Some of the artists who have already blessed the Power 99 performance studio include, Chill Moody, Writtenhouse, Aquil, Dave Ghetto, Hezekiah and Verso, all of whom have poured their souls into each line for a FREE show.  That’s right, a FREE show.

Go to power99.com and type in the keyword, “movement” to be taken to where you can RSVP for the remaining shows, or just click here. The remaining artists are Amir Taron, Ako, and Fel Sweetenberg.  All the videos from previous performances are onpower99.com. 

The Movement airs on power99.com live every Wednesday at 5 p.m., at the Power 99 studio.  To see the show in person, RSVP here.
