BHF

The 2012 Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival runs from Monday, 7/9 (tonight) through Saturday (7/14). As mentioned, Busta Rhymes is headlining, but since we last spoke, more artists have been announced. The fest kicks off tonight at Brooklyn Bowl with a stacked lineup of Freeway, Young Guru, Evitan, 1982 (Statik Selektah & Termanology), REKS, and more. Tickets for that show are still available. Festival passes will only be accepted between 8 PM - 10 PM.

On Thursday (7/12), Public Assembly will host "Salute the DJ," with sets from DJ Chuck Chillout, DJ Sucio Smash, Ralph McDaniels, M. Will, KJ, and DP One. Tickets for that are available.

The final day, July 14, includes 'Family Day' at Pier 3 at Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the Busta-headlined show at the Brooklyn waterfront with Ka, Clear Soul Forces, Chuuwee, Fat Tony and more TBA. There's also an after party at the Knitting Factory with an early show by Ana Tijoux, Rebel Diaz, and Javiera Mena (tickets) and a late show by Jasmine Solano, Melo-X, CSC Funk Band, DJ Evil Dee, and "special invited guests." (tickets).

There will also be film screenings, symposiums, and more. Check out the full schedule.

Just one question - will there be metal detectors?

"a stacked lineup" usually means that the artists are good, unless I misunderstood the irony?

Racism is stupid... It shows a small brain lacking in critical thinking.

However, I do find it interesting how grape soda is extremely popular in the African American communities.
