glproductions Of all the Native Tongues crew @chialibx might be the most underrated. The Bronx rapper's first appearances were on the @delasolarvision B-Side of "Say No Go" and "Pass The 40" a Black Sheep posse cut off their debut album. He was 13 years-old at the time... Less than a year later, his lead single "Age Ain't Nothing But A #" would come out on Relativity Records. It was an instant Hip-Hop classic, peaking at #6 on the Hot Rap Singles chart and earning heavy rotation on Yo! MTV Raps and Rap City. In 2001, after a year-log manhunt, Ali would be arrested on first degree manslaughter charges. He served 12 years in Sing Sing. #PHILLYLOVESNATIVETONGUES @thedjmikenyce @craigdash @ameerahkart @flygirrl @shotsfired215 @johnnybrendas @couchsessions 17h
  •   spek27 Top left pic, I got that 12". You should listen to the episode he's on of the Juan Epstein podcast. Really informative on his whole story. 16h
  •   glproductions @spek27 Of course you do lol. And yeah, I'll def check for that 16h
  •   spek27 @glproductions You'll have to scroll back in their archives for it, but it's def worth a listen. He goes through his whole life story. 16h
  •   unklechip Agreed. I had the album and wore it out. My mind was blown when the Roadrunner single had the Puberty Mix! So ill. Plus Beatnuts production? Amazing. 14h
  •   glproductions I loved Chi-Ali! We're right around the same age, and back then a lot of my friends in the neighborhood were older than me. So listening to Chi-Ali used to make me think I was the young bul hanging out with the big dawgs lol @unklechip 14h

glproductions #ATribeCalledQuest #BeatsRhymesAndLife first dropped in 1996, eventually reaching #1 on the Billboard 200 and Top R&B Albums charts. What makes this LP special, it was the first album to feature production by #TheUmmah (members @qtiptheabstract @alishaheed + #Dilla who I think was still going by #JayDee back then). The album would get 2 Grammy nominations (Best Rap Album + Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group) and go on to sell over 1 million copies, certified platinum… Please join us on Saturday 9/6 at @johnnybrendas as we celebrate the whole #NativeTongues catalogue featuring Maseo of @delasolarvision Trust us when we say he's takin' it there! #PHILLYLOVESNATIVETONGUES @thedjmikenyce @craigdash @ameerahkart @flygirrl @shotsfired215 @couchsessions 6d

glproductions Thursday night come pay your respects and get that ass shook by one of the greatest to ever touch the wheels of steel! DJ Cash Money is our special guest! He's been reppin' Philly for the longest and one of the pioneers responsible for bridging the gap between turntablism and party rockin'. For all the DJs who came out for DJ Bonics and DJ Trayze, I seriously hope you come out to see this man do what he does cuz he still does it better than everybody else! As Cash puts it, "I'm friends with all the guys who are producing the Trap and Hip-Hop that DJs are playing, and I got a crew of young buls who send me all the remixes and edits. When I'm overseas that's all I play." It's about to go down!!! No cover before 11p. Restaurant serves til 1am. Beer garden's open outside. And we got Heineken and Sailor Jerry drink specials all night! Come out and get freaky with us! #THURSDAYSATSILK @shotsfired215 @silkcitydiner @craigdash 4w
