Founded in 2019 by Philadelphia rap artist Shoto Khan from the gritty hard hitting rap groups Dead Disciples, Double DragonZ and the TerrorKata Army, the Philly Raw Rap music collective returns to bring you the hottest Philly Style Raw Rap from around the world!
From mixtape series with rolling submissions to Distrokid Distribution Deals we are back bigger than ever! With a ton of new completely FREE services, we at Philly Raw Rap believe that artists need to work together in order to be able to consistently make new music and collectively push it to new audiences. Disillusioned by the over saturation of pay for play services and a lack of substantial platforms to actually help artists grow, Philly Raw Rap was founded as means to offer an outlet for artists to grow together through SHARING artist responsibilities.
Philly Raw Rap operates under the concept that you get what you put in. Artists who have Distrokid accounts can submit exclusive music, hop on tracks with open verses and get on our Spotify playlists with NO OUT OF POCKET COST! Instead, we do Revenue Shares via Distrokid with a concise break down of splits among artists, engineers and producers.
With artists having a direct investment in the music, the more artists on a track or the more tracks put out with various artists, the more people there will be looking to have the music heard. As such, artists involved will be pushing the music on various social media platforms, websites, podcasts and events. The more artists involved and the more tracks put out, the more people to push the music. Its literally that simple! Make music, you and the other artists share, all artists get a percentage. The more sharing, the more listens, the more fans the more money for everyone from the Distribution Share.
