MICHAEL MCARTHER and JEROME HIPPS: Owners of Philadelphia-based, MAMA's BOY's MUSIC and Creative Ambassadors for Philly360
This week on TALK! with AUDREY: Philadelphia is a must-visit destination for the music lover. The city has one of the country’s strongest musical legacies, which produced such artists as Chubby Checker, Gamble & Huff, Hall & Oates, Patti LaBelle, Boyz II Men, and, and more recently, The Roots, Circa Survive, Jill Scott, Will Smith, Pink, Jasmine Sullivan, Meek Mill and Kurt Vile. The Philly Sound continues to evolve and influence music on a national and international level.
Philly360 Creative Ambassadors, MICHAEL MCARTHER and JEROME HIPPS, aka Mike & J of Philadelphia-based, MAMA's BOY's MUSIC, are the duo who discovered Musiq Soulchild and helped influence the Philadelphia soul music movement that inspired the world. We talk about the Philadelphia music scene and why Jay-Z chose Philadelphia as the location for his two-day Made in America music festival.
