RECAP: Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival Summer 2014

2 weekends ago I was honored with the chance to attend the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. Tickets were provided, so I had to make the pilgrimage to NYC to check it out.
The festival similar to the A3C Fest in ATL is celebrating it’s 10th year in operation this year.

Hosted in a vacant lot in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (right off the East River) it was a beautiful sunny day for an outside concert for sure. When I arrived Tanya Morgan joined by Spec Boogie were getting on stage. I dipped out and missed a few acts including Brand Nubian, Beatnuts, and who knows who else. Luckily I looked at the BKHHF website that morning, and noticed that Jay Electronica’s set time had been moved up to an earlier time. The post mentioned his set would be epic, and there would be special guests you didn’t want to miss.

30 minutes after his initial set time though, his DJ was still spinning his actual songs to the crowd. The host Uncle Ralph McDaniels and other staff looked like they were stalling, the sound engineer kept checking mics (as if the mics weren’t crispy already from the last performance). I started thinking to myself did this just turn into a Jay Elec listening party? Is he here? Will their be a show?

And FINALLY... Jay graced the stage flanked by a crew of brothers dressed in F.O.I (Fruit Of Islam) garb. Once he appeared, I must say he definitely gave the crowd a show. The hour long set featured all the joints you would probably expect to hear in a Jay Elect set: “Eternal Sunshine,” “Exhibit A (Transformations)”, “Exhibit C,” etc. Special guests included Mac Miller (who straight forgot whatever verse he was supposed to be spitting) which turned into freestyle session between the two. There was also Talib Kweli, and J-Cole who seemed to appear and disappear rather quickly. The show was going great and had no one else appeared on stage with Jay, I would of been perfectly fine with that.

But being the magician Jay Elect is, or course he had a trick up his sleeve and that was none other than Jay-Z himself. Hov didn’t just pop up to rock the couple cuts he has with Jay Elect, he set it off by his rendition of “Young, Gifted, and Black,” and even gave the crowd a treat of “P.S.A.” as well as his joints with Jay Elect including the latest “We Made It.”

I took a bunch of camera phone pics, and even got some video. Then I saw all these fly pictures and HD video, and put my stuff in the archives. HA.


Oh… and before you see these videos, I must mention I ran into Spike Lee who had a 40 Acres Pop Up Shop set up at the fest. I treated myself to a T-shirt and a “Do The Right Thing” behind the scenes book which Spike actually signed… Not too bad considering where we were a few years back! HA.

After this.. CJ Pro Era rocked, and Raekwon did his thing with a few brooklyn guest including AZ, Masta Killa, Troy Ave, and Papoose. But too be honest nothing quite surpassed the energy of the moment seen above.

VIDEO: Senor Kaos – Most Interesting MC In The World Release Party Footage

On Wednesday, March 2 I celebrated the official release for my new project “The Most Interesting MC In The World” at 529 EAV in Atlanta, GA. Special invited guests Boog Brown, Clan Destined, 4-IZE, Dillon, Binkis Recs and DJ Deliver joined me to make the festivities an extravaganza. These were also people who were featured on the actual project as well.

Here’s the thing about this show, there were no opening acts! I set the show off, and brought along the special guests to rock with me, not before me. What ensued was a hour and a half long set of me running thru several of the hits from the Señor Kaos catalog… Yeah I said hits, I got HEAT! Lol.

BIG shouts to Will from High Impact Designs for shooting and posting this footage for the people around the world too see.

So… here it is, check it out. And you haven’t purchased the new project yet, what are you waiting for??? Make sure you hit to get your digital copy today.

VIDEO: Señor Kaos, 4-Ize, & Punchline Performing @ 2010 A3C Festival

It’s still CRAZY to think this song was actually recorded on accident, and was originally just suppose to be a promo for DJ Rasta Root’s Classic Example radio show. The response to song has been amazing over the past year. So much so, that people ran up too me last Thursday like “Yo, I know ya’ll doing Classic Example tonight, right?” Part of making music is giving the people what they want.

So here’s some footage from last weeks A3C festival. Señor Kaos, Punchline, and 4-Ize performing “Classic Example” on the Jak Prints Stage Oct. 7th. Check it out.

Also here’s some footage from the gang rocking “Classic Example” at Apache Cafe during the show with Tanya Morgan.
