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.

Mixtape Mondays: Quality Control & Unique Squared Present The Official SXSW Mixtape


Shouts to the good people over at Unique Squared. Soul Wallace, AJ, Presyce, Tom and the rest of the gang.

During this year’s SXSW Festival leading pro audio company Unique Squared, in partnership with Quality Control Marketing, parked a massive tour bus on Austin’s streets to serve as a state of the art recording studio. Throughout the festivities some of hip-hop’s most notable emcees stopped by the Mobile Studio to record exclusive songs over all-original production. The result is The Official SXSW Mixtape, a 30 track collection that captures the energy and creativity of SXSW.

The Official SXSW Mixtape is presented by Unique Squared, Quality Control, 2DopeBoyz and Acclaimed industry engineer Fokis handled the mixing and engineering duties while tracks were blended and arranged by DJ Presyce (three time Scribble Jam DJ Battle Champion). Featured artists include Tanya Morgan, Skyzoo, Khaleel, Nick Javas, J-Live and more. Contributing producers include Seattle’s heavyweight beatsmith Jake One, Von Pea (of Tanya Morgan), Crazy DJ Bazarro (of the Beatminerz) in addition to noteworthy up-and-comers Apollo Brown, IMakeMadBeats, Dynamite Brothers, D.R.U.G.S. and female producer Kels of TN2 Productions.

To witness artists selecting beats, writing and recording in such a short period of time was extraordinary and a testament to Unique Squared’s ability to create a unique and creative environment. It’d be an understatement to say this was a Herculean task on everyone’s part, thank you to all the partners and artists that helped make it possible.

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.
