(AllHipHop News) Grammy nominated producer Vidal Davis hosted a meet and greet for various media figures to kick off the “Budweiser Made in America Festival.”
Marsha Ambrosious, producer Sterling Simms, Vidal and others discussed the Philly music scene at legendary studio, Sigma Sounds.
Combined, the artists/producers have worker with artists like Jay-Z, Michael Jackson, Usher, Ludacris, Tupac Shakur and others.
The trio discussed Philadelphia’s role in the music industry.
“I didn’t choose New York, I didn’t choose Los Angeles. I didn’t even choose Philadelphia, Philadelphia chose me. Here I am 12 years later. Philadelphia is a city where you don’t have to try, you can just be who you are.”
According to Vidal Davis, the Philly music scene is very vibrant, having produced acts like The Roots, Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, Will Smith, Tone Trump, Young Savage, Chill Moody, Eve, DJ Drama, Meek Mill and others.
“It just let’s you know the artists here have staying power,” Vidal told AllHipHop.com. “The Hip-Hop scene in Philly is doing very well. For awhile the emcees weren’t being recognized for their talent by the industry. A light is really starting to shine on the city.”
The producers revealed that their new artist Young Savage will be joining select dates on the OMG Tour in the coming weeks.
The “Budweiser Made In America festival” kicks off tomorrow (September 1) in Philadelphia.
