Pusha T, EPMD, Redman, Dizzy Wright & More To Perform on July 13th
The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival is more than a music festival; it’s a celebration of Brooklyn and of Hip-Hop. Whatever your particular tastes are, there is someone on the bill that fans of all ages can be excited about and the spontaneous nature of the Festival is the epitome of Hip-Hop, as unexpected guests have become part of the Festival’s allure. Recent festivals have included impromptu performances from Kanye West to Q-Tip who have shown up to support the headliners (mind you, not for one song, but for nearly entire sets). That spontaneity is sure to emerge this year as well, as with EPMD and Redman on the bill; will the “Hit Squad” reunite? Will Kanye and his G.O.O.D. Music brethren join Pusha T (he is after all dropping his debut solo-LP the Tuesday following the festival) and perform? The possibilities are endless.
In addition to headliners Pusha T, EPMD and Redman, Brooklyn Bodega, producers of the Festival will be paying tribute to Adam Yauch aka “MCA” of the Beastie Boys. The founder of the legendary group passed away last year from cancer and the team at Brooklyn Bodega has wanted to pay their respects since the news broke.
