Ghostface Killah Celebrating Brooklyn
Ghostface Killah

"Although he only had 45 minutes on stage, for which he apologized a few times to the crowd of "10,000" fans, he played hip-hop classics off his solo albums like "Ironman," "Supreme Clientele," a bunch of bangers from Wu-Tang Clan.

But, Ghostface wasn't alone on stage, Cappadonna, the unofficial tenth member of Wu-Tang, took the stage and did a killer rendition of the song "Winter Warz" over Notorious B.I.G.'s "Who Shot Ya" beat.

Sheek Louch also hit the stage and played his verses from The Lox's various albums.

By 8 p.m., the police cut off the crowd, which Ghostface said was about 10,000 deep, from filling the fenced off area in front of the stage. So, as die hard fans still filled the park surrounding the bandshell, they lined up along the fence to dance and rhyme along with the hip-hop MCs. [Patch]

Ghostface Killah played the free Lyricist Lounge anniversary show in Prospect Park on Saturday (6/23) with  Camp LoAstro (who you might know from TV show The X-Factor), Farrah Burns, and Rah Diggah. Lots more great pics from that show below.

Rap continued at Celebrate Brooklyn earlier this week with Danny Brown and Schoolboy Q opening for Childish Gambino (Instagrams here and here). Ghostface plays NYC again as part of Wu-Block (at Highline Ballroom and in NJ at Rock the Bells)

Meanwhile, Celebrate Brooklyn continues in Prospect Park tonight (6/28) with Ballet Hispanico, "the leading representative of Hispanic culture in American dance" (8pm, free). On Friday (6/29) it's Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, The Brooklyn Steppers, and Dayna Kurtz (7:30pm, free), and Saturday (6/30) it's Angélique Kidjo's Women Waging Peace with Special Guests Laurie Anderson, Sibongile Khumalo, and Somi (7:30pm, free).

I thought the shirtless dude in the yellow shorts was supposed to be Prodigy of Mobb Deep?

Camp Lo didn't play this show. They were scheduled to, but Prodigy of Mobb Deep played instead. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT.

Everyone who is able to owes it to themselves to check out Trombone Shorty tomorrow night. He's an amazing singer and musician with a super tight band and the shows are always full of energy! Plus it's free. Get there!
