“A life dedicated, to them never saying I never made it!” What started out as a bar in a verse has become sort of a mantra for Chill Moody. The young aspiring hip-hop artist prides himself on being one of the top lyricists to hit Philadelphia in years.

This led to a performing at the Apple Store in SoHo (NY) on Feb, 21, 2013.
