Description

In discussions of the classic hip-hop era of the
1980s, frequently lost in the shuffle is
the homegrown scene of Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania. This is unfortunate, due to the
wealth of talent the scene produced, including
bonafide legends such as Schoolly D, Three
Times Dope, Cash Money & Marvelous, and of
course the wildly successful DJ Jazzy Jeff &
The Fresh Prince. Frequently underrated is Tuff
Crew, who were billed as “Philly’s First Rap
Supergroup”, and consisted of a crew of
ethnically diverse MCs and DJs who were
regular performers of North Philly’s famed
After Midnight club.
Throughout the mid-to-late 1980s, Tuff Crew
would perform alongside some of the greatest
hip-hop artists of all time, including
Run-D.M.C., LL Cool J, and 2 Live Crew,
but would never reach the heights of
commercial success, despite landing various
singles on the Billboard Rap charts. The peak
of thus success undoubtedly came with the
release of their 1988 LP Danger Zone, which
featured 10 tracks of classic 80s rap, including
the Billboard-charting “My Part Of Town”. (#23
on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles charts.)
An obscure, but vital piece of old
school ephemera, and a must-have for
any hip-hop historian.
