“They should have asked for their Favorite Philly Act that's not The Roots.”

“In Philly, we play both types of music. Hip hop AND indie rock! No, but seriously, you guys couldn't find a few more MCs and DJs to contribute?”

“Stop hating. There isn't even an indie rock station on main stream radio in Philly. Philadelphia is known for Soul music and Hip-Hop. And more music industry DJs have come out of Philly than any other city in the world. Whether it's Josh Wink, Diplo or Jazzy Jeff, we have dominated DJ culture for the last 30 years.”

“I call it as I see it, and I see a music scene far more diverse in this city than was given credit by these so-called "taste makers". Maybe if there was someone over 35 contributing to PW, we'd hear about it. Oh, and if you're actually under the impression that there isn't an indie rock station in Philly, there's a little station called WXPN. You should tune in sometime! You'll get all the Avett Brothers and Dr. Dog your little eardrums can handle. (But only if Pitchfork says it's okay)”
