Chill Moody’s career trajectory is starting to look like that of another local success story, Meek Mill. In the last year, the West Philly rapper has scored a spot in Power 99 FM’s Powerhouse showcase
at the Wells Fargo Center, played his first Roots Picnic and put on a wack live band show at Love Park with Hot 107.9FM. Now, on the eve of dropping his new self-released album, #RFM, the wiry MC with the scattershot rhythms and bold electronic backdrops is holding a pre-party at TLA just like Mill did for his breakout smash, Dreams & Nightmares, this summer. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Call Rick Ross.
Fri., Dec. 28, 10 p.m., $12-$16, with Jade Alston, Mic Stew, Mont Brown and Tayyib Ali, TLA, 334 South St., 215-625-3681, live-nation.com.
