Here’s the 2nd vid from the folks over at Brooklyn Bodega of the amazing show Q-tip put on with another of his special guest. Busta explains how the Tribe changed his life and how he almost became a member of ATCQ. That would have been interesting huh?
Summer time in NYC is always full of great hip hop shows and outdoor events. From Mos Def in Fort Green Park, Talib Kweli in Red Hook park, Raekwon, Smif-n-Wessun, Joel Ortiz & Skyzoo in Prospect Park, and of course last weeks Brooklyn hip hop festival headlined by Q-Tip and his amazing friends of which included Busta Rhymes and Kanye West. Best part is THE SUMMERS NOT OVER!!!
On Wednesday night, DJ Cassidy held his 30th birthday celebration at the Intrepid museum with an estimated 900 guests. For 10 years straight, the celebrity DJ who has spun for BeyoncÃ© and Jay-Z’s wedding and President Obama’s inauguration has turned his birthday bash into an annual NYC Summer hit. Celebrity guests like Russel Simmons, Carmelo Anthony, Chanel Iman, Adrienne Bailon, Kristie Alley, Q-Tip, Doug E. Fresh and Swizz Beatz poured into the historic venue to help DJ Cassidy celebrate his last annual birthday extravaganza with a bang!
The event was sponsored by Hennessy who was also celebrating their 1st year anniversary of Hennessy Black. Guests are always treated to a very special surprise and this year it was no different. New Edition & Doug E Fresh performed for the anxious crowd to capped off the night. Check out video footage of the group performing below!
Shot and edited by Jav Martinez and Victoria Ng, Brooklyn Bodega has been putting up some cool promo videos for artists who will be performing onstage at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. The list of dope MCees is long (see below), but we would like to draw attention to an artist we have been following and supporting, since we first saw him pop up in shows in Brooklyn and Manhattan a couple years ago.
If you want to hear his humble beginnings, check out his first video “Lightning Bolt“, which got his buzz started. Continue through his catalog and enjoy his latest video “The Carpenter“.
Brooklyn Bodega’s The Company Man met up with Homeboy Sandman for an eventful day. From playing darts in the East Village, to recording at the legendary Beatminerz home studio in Bushwick, to hopping on a bus to Queens to record some more, Homeboy Sandman’s humility & hustle separates him from any other MC in the game.
Homeboy Sandman will be rocking the 2011 Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival on July 16th at the Brooklyn Bridge Plaza & Tobacco Warehouse, along with Q-Tip & friends, Kendrick Lamar, Random Axe, M.O.P & more!
