As a an Emcee with larger than life lyrics, Philly Blocks is consistent in his delivery of “real rap”, and verses that pack a punch! His name is synonymous with the sounds of his emergence on the hip hop scene of Philadelphia.
He was born Juancinto Neal in Louisville, Kentucky. His stint of visits with relatives of Philadelphia and Chicago, engulfed him in the blaze of east coast and Midwest style that shapes his sound today. His word play, lyricism, and delivery, are reminiscent of the game’s greatest.
“I’ve always had an east coast delivery heavily influenced by the East coast’s rap scene. I chose Philly as my moniker.”
As for ‘Blocks’ it stems from his time in the streets as a youth, hence the name Philly Blocks! Inspired by the likes of Master P, Nipsey Hussle, Damon Dash, and Rocko. Philly Blocks is a guru of entrepreneurship with a rapidly growing empire, and self proclaimed “Almighty General” of Louisville’s infamous brand #Team563. A sonically appeasing standout with an unique voice that pairs oh-so-well over 808s. Blocks lyrics and storytelling are just what today’s music is missing.
