NY Magazine went to the 24-hour "Rapathon" in Harlem.

Tickets are on sale for Method Man and GZA at Webster Hall on June 5th. Tickets still on sale for Rakim at Southpaw.

Our favorite Joell Ortiz was added to the KRS-One show at Irving/Fillmore on May 20th. KRS-One is also playing Prospect Park in Brooklyn this summer.

We have a pair of tickets to give away to the Devin the Dude show at Knitting Factory this Friday night. Want them? E-mail BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: Devin), and let us know who the best hip hop act you ever saw live was. One winner will be picked at random. Include your first and last name for guestlist purposes.

Dres of Black Sheep, Emily King, Ralph McDaniels and El Michels Affair were added to the 3rd Annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival.
