The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival
(and yes, I make a split second cameo in this video w/ my N.E.S.H.A. shirt on)
I am late posting this but I wanted to wait until I had photos so you could get the full experience! The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival was last Saturday with performances by KRS One, DJ Premier, Buckshot, Blu & Exile, Mickey Factz, 88-Keys, J.Period, Fresh Daily, Zaki Ibrahim, Homeboy Sandman and Special Guests! Hosted by Uncle Ralph McDaniels, The BK Hip Hop Festival typically features new artists with a lot of buzz in addition to classic acts such as KRS One this year, in the past performers included Ghostface, Consequence, and Big Daddy Kane.
This is my third year going (with me and Assata as usual), and its simply a good day in the park to have fun and listen to good music. Mickey Factz performed this year and it even got Charles Hamilton to come to Brooklyn (and I finally met HCho — holla at me for the shirts!). Charles was going around doing interviews for imeem (see video above) and I just watched the performances and took photos. If you missed it this year definitely make sure you register at www.BrooklynBodega.com so you will be in the loop for next year’s performance day!
