Is Philly in the midst of a comeback? The city of brotherly love has given us such great emcees as Beanie Sigel, Cassidy, Freeway, and The Roots’ Black Thought. It has been in a bit of a lull since the fall of Roc-A-Fella, but it seems like Philly is back with a vengeance this year. Battle rappers such as Hollow Man and Reed Dollaz have been holding it down for the underground for a while now, but it seems like emcees like Meek Mill and Young Chris could finally bring the Philly sound back to mainstream prominence.

Young Chris and Neef Buck, formerly known as the Young Gunz dropped . The pair is best known for their stint on Roc-A-Fella records, which gave them the massive hit ‘Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop.’ They dropped their second album, Brothers From Another, back in 2005, and since then we haven’t really heard from them. Young Chris has been keeping his name in the spotlight by dropping mixtapes, most recently The Network 2, while Neef has all but disappeared. The two are back together though, and today they dropped their Back to Business mixtape which you can check out here.

Meek Mill is definitely the next rapper to blow from Philly. He already has the cosign of all of the major rappers of his city, as well as T.I., whose Grand Hustle label has partnered with Meek to help distribute his projects. Earlier this year Meek dropped the Flamerz 3 mixtape, hosted by DJ Drama (as a part of his Gangsta Grillz series).
