The 12th annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival went down this past weekend (July 16) in DUMBO, Brooklyn and it was everything that OG Hip-Hoppers could’ve asked for.
The crowd in attendance rocked out to classic cuts from yesteryear courtesy of the festival’s performers such as The Lox, Smif-N-Wessun (a.k.a. The Cocoa Brovas), Havoc from Mobb Deep (R.I.P. Prodigy), Lil Cease, a recently released from jail DMX, and the God MC himself, Rakim.
Over the festivals 12 years of existence its shows has featured the likes of Hip-Hop royalty such as Jay-Z, Nas, Q-Tip, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Big Daddy Kane, and Busta Rhymes amongst others.
