The Philly Black is no stranger to the struggle. Growing up with a single mother of 5, who was a victim of extreme domestic violence, living on the welfare system in the famed Richard Allen Projects and various subsidized houses throughout the city of Philadelphia in the 80’s and early 90’s. The Philly Black recalls “Growing up without a father figure during the 90’s was hard especially when your father was a womanizer, abuser, pool hustler, and all-around bad guy. You get heat every day from the neighborhood children and classmates which can hurt a lot but over time you learn to get numb to it. Not to mention growing up below the poverty level didn’t help the situation. I remember times where we had to eat ice out of the freezer because we ran out of food and through it all I still didn’t run to the streets. I chose not to be a static and I’m still making that choice today and every day.”

That’s how we change the world. It’s about our future and cultural preservation.”
