“Let me start by saying that this isn’t just about me, this is about pioneering and legendary DJs from Philadelphia who are not being recognized.
Just as everyone knows that Hip Hop’s founding fathers are Kool DJ Herc, Afrika Bambaataa and Grand master Flash from the Bronx – it is common knowledge that DJ Jazzy Jeff and myself are the most famous Hip Hop DJ legends from Philadelphia.
When the first Philly DJ Day took place in 2008, I was invited to attend and help celebrate its launch. DJs from every decade in Philadelphia Hip Hop history attended and many group photos were taken of us to commemorate this day of unity.
Around the beginning of 2009, the organizers of Philly DJ Day received a proclamation, signed by the Mayor of Philadelphia, confirming an official Philly DJ Day to be celebrated annually. They proudly announced it. I was excited to read it myself!
