“This is the best fucking city in the entire world,” said Oliver “Twist” Feighan, half the Philadelphia born and raised hip hop duo, OCD: Moosh & Twist.

“215 till the day I die/Said it once and ill say it again,” rapped DeQuincy “Moosh” Coleman McRae during the duo’s performance of “Hometown” on Friday at the TLA.

“One day we gon’ make it rappin’,” followed Twist. “Philly blood in my soul dog but show the whole world we gon’ make it happen.”

Friends since they met in first grade, Moosh & Twist performed tracks such as “How We Do,” “Take Me Back” and “Unstoppable.”

As the duo spit their interesting lyrics, they frequently left the stage to perform inches away from the crowd. The hundreds of people in the packed venue mirrored their enthusiasm.

Ground Up, a hip-hop trio that resides in Philadelphia, opened for M&T. Mixing eccentric wordplay with interesting sounds (like the horn on “Let’s Ride”), MC’s Azar and Malakai kept the crowd jumping.

Major Van Winkle opened.

The show gave fans a great mixture of Philadelphia’s unique hip-hop scene.
