The 2008 Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (KRS One, DJ Premier)….
The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival is proud to announce the addition of
KRS ONE and DJ Premier to the 2008 lineup! These two living legends will join Brooklyn's own Buckshot on stage on July 12th at Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park.
Following in the tradition of Brand Nubian, Big Daddy Kane and Ghostface, KRS ONE will headline this year festivities. Widely recognized as one of the greatest MC's of all time KRS ONE recently celebrated 20 years in the game. From 'Criminal Minded' to 'By Any Means Necessary' to 'Return of the Boom Bap' KRS has been Hip-Hop's constant spiritual and philosophical leader. It will be an honor and a privilege to host the Blastmaster this year.
DJ Premier is quite simply a Hip-Hop super hero. He is without a doubt the most talented, down to earth, real producer or artist you can find. Along with KRS Premier has been a pillar for our culture since Gangstarr's 'Step In the Arena.' Primo has rocked with DITC, Biggie, Nas, MOP, Common, Jay, Mos, Rakim, and on on. Quite simply Primo is the man.
As we get closer to July more announcements will drop. Look for some neo-Soul love, some local champs, some out of town friends, and more.
Remember The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival is:
•July 10th at the Brooklyn Masonic Temple, Fort Greene (tickets)
•July 11th in DUMBO
•July 12th, the Main Day at Empire-Fulton Ferry
And don't forget the 'Spit 16' Contest. We had to return to The Source to get that working right. More on that later.
