Philly (Philip Murray)

Mildura, Victoria
Hip Hop & Rap

Philly was born in the golden era of hip-hop in 1991. By the age of four his older brothers had a huge collection and all he ever listened to was hip-hop. He began writing rhymes, dubbing beats & rapping in public and soon became a hip-hop sensation with a big following of kids in his hometown Mildura; his traditional homeland down Swan Hill side near the banks of the mighty Murray River.
