(AllHipHop News) Philadelphia DJ QuestLove will return to his hometown tonight (July 3), to host his annual event, PSK (Philadelphia Sound Konnoisseurs).
QuestLove, J Rocc, Rich Medina, DJ Cash Money, Cosmo Baker and Matthew Law will provide the sounds for the event, which will take place at popular Club Voyeur.
PSK, which is now in its third year, has featured spinners like DJ Drama, Dj Statik, Diplo and others. The event is named after Philly rapper Schoolly D’s 1986 landmark hit of the same name, which is also considered the first “Gangsta Rap” song.
“What we decided was to throw a rave if you will,” Dj QuestLove said of the event. “The first challenge was finding a venue in Philadelphia that would at least have multi-rooms. And then the second challenge was getting these DJs to commit.”
The event precedes Philadelphia’s “Wawa Welcome America” July 4th celebration, which started on June 28, and winds down with a massive concert, which will take place on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
The “Wawa Welcome America” concert will feature guest artists like Nicki Minaj, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, Aloe Blacc, Jennifer Hudson and of course The Roots.
