For three years the PHLI Block Party has been a seminal event of summer time in the Windy City. Each July people of all races, ages, and neighborhoods have gathered in Hyde Park's Harper Court for a day of music, food, and fashion. With a performance history boasting the likes of Rhymefest, Peedi Crak, GLC, Kanye West, Keith Murray, and Just Blaze, this year's PHLI Block party was the most anticipated to date. However, due to neighborhood politics, a sale of Harper Court, and the violence seen in Chicago this year, the PHLI Party has been left with nowhere to go, and has been canceled, much to the disappointment of Dave Jeff and people throughout the city.
Dave Jeff broke the news to RubyHornet first, and tells the whole story in this interview with Roosevelt Treasurechest. Dave also speaks on PHLI's future home given the University of Chicago's plans for Harper Court, as well as the full spectrum of the PHLI Brand.
