What is the difference between DC and Philly? This is the question pondered in the latest entry to Intelligent Discourse, the official blog of the Poem-Cees. It's a pretty interesting summary of why the DC hip-hop scene hasn't exploded like those of its East Coast brethren, complete with a manifesto for how DC could put itself on the map.

I've heard many of the artists mentioned and there's absolutely NO REASON why DC doesn't have a national presence. It's like a hidden national treasure. Do yourself a favor and spend a little bit of extra time investigating the DC scene. I'm sure if you write to the Poem-Cees, they'd be more than happy to point you in the right direction (starting with their debut I.O.U. Street, of course).
