For those in the know, the Brooklyn Hip-Hop festival is one of the best yearly looks on the hip-hop calendar. For over 5 years now, the yearly event has showcased some of the best the genre has to offer, combining live music with cultural and creative events throughout the week. Headlining the festival in previous years were acts such as Ghostface Killah, Big Daddy Kane, and Brand Nubian. However, this year, they are proud to announce this years headliner is none other than De La Soul.
If you haven’t seen De La Soul live then you are missing out. Forget these young kids and their half hour sets, De La can easily do 2-3 hours of solid (and energetic) hip-hop. With a catalog that spans from hip-hop’s “golden era” all the way up to sold millennium era releases like The Grind Date.
The show takes place on July 10th, 2010. Tickets go on sale Monday May 3rd at BrooklynBodega.com, the official home of the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. Follow @BKHipHopFest for more details.
