The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival is this weekend - with Ghostface and others.

Pharoahe Monch at the SoHo Apple Store

Pharoahe did a special performance at the Apple Store in SoHo, NYC this past Sunday. Performing songs from his upcoming album Desire (in stores June 26), Pharoahe kept the 2nd floor of the store packed and nodding their heads to the new material. [the label]
