1967-1975: The Social Clubs

The “Social Clubs” became an important part of Philadelphia culture during the 1970s. McCray joined two street social clubs during this time: Imperial Councilors of Soul and Delta Phi Soul. A social outlet set apart from the gangs, the clubs were about two things: style and meeting women. McCray excelled at both. Delta Phi Soul was a club made up exclusively of taggers, including Cornbread, Cool Earl, and Tity. The different clubs would throw parties all over the city. At this point, McCray’s tagging exploits had already made Cornbread a celebrity. He and his Delta Phi Soul club were a popular staple at the club parties. It became a source of pride to have Cornbread tag your basement wall.
