Hip-Hop Hooray in BK


The buzz in hip-hop this week might be Jay-Z’s new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, but Shawn Carter isn’t the only rapper in town. This Saturday, an array of hip-hop royalty and young up-and-comers will share a stage at the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival at Pier 5 at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Head to the park early for an all-ages block party from noon-3pm before a bevy of hip-hop headliners graces the stage, including trailblazing duo EPMD, The Clipse’s Pusha T and Wu-Tang’s Redman, and newcomers Dizzy Wright and Brooklyn MC Danse Daimons. And check out our interview with Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival founder Wes Jackson, along with a festival-inspired playlist perfect for these hot summer days. Tickets start at $20.
