Event Reminder: Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival 6/18 – 6/21

Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival

From luminary MC’s Notorious B.I.G. & Big Daddy Kane to respected lyricists Jay-ZAZ, FabolousMos Def & Talib Kweli, from underground stalwarts Smif-N-Wessun, M.O.P., Black Moon & Jeru Da Damaja to famous females Lil’ Kim & Foxy Brown, there’s no denying Brooklyn’s impact on hip-hop history.

For the past 4 years, Brooklyn Bodega has celebrated the borough’s musical & cultural influence by hosting the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival.  Hit the jump for more details about this year’s Festival.

The festivities start off Thursday with a photo exhibit/ fundraiser at the Galapagos Art Space then an invite-only party Friday.

Saturday’s Main Festival are the highlight for a head like me. A boatload of established acts like DJ Premier, Pharaohe Monch, and Dead Prez plus rising artists like Torae & Marco Polo, Donny Goines, Tiye Phoenix, and New Jersey’s own Brokn Enlgsh will be holding it down on two stages throughout the day. Check the full line-up below.

Also, Brooklyn Bodega does not charge a formal ticket fee but rather accepts donations to offset the production costs. Click here for information.

I haven’t decided 100% yet if I’ll be going Sat. By the looks of the schedule, it should be an epic event.. So I really should.
