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).

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.
