Philly Block Project

The Tuff Crew

Philadelphia has a long musical history, and South Kensington shares in plenty of it! In fact, we were the birthplace of the Tuff Crew, considered Philly’s first rap supergroup, and made up of Ice Dog, L.A. Kid, Monty G, Tone Love, and DJ Too Tuff.

In 1989, the Tuff Crew broke two Billboard charts: “My Parta Town” peaked at #23 on the Hot Rap Singles chart, while “Back to Wreck Shop” reached #74 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop charts.

Today, DJ Too Tuff owns and operates Dangerzone Music Group, a Philadelphia-based record label that is still going strong.
