Last weekend's 5th annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival, presented by brooklynbodega.com, was our first time doing promotion at an event like this. We had been doing a lot of networking behind the scenes and through online venues. I booked a booth and used the festival to serve as the launch of our free promo CD, THE ZRO HOUR: RESPECT THE ARCHITECTS VOL.1. A limited run of CDs were pressed and they will be distributed through the summer at various events. For those that may not obtain a copy, there is a download link at the top of the page.
It rained steadily off and on throughout the whole day but that did not stop several hundred hip hop heads from showing up and enjoying the sounds of Marco Polo & Torae, DJ Premier, Styles P, Pharoahe Monch, Smif -N- Wesssun and many upcoming acts including the Brown Bag All-Stars. A couple of hundred people stopped by the booth and 300 CDs were given away in total. Most people were blown away by Dubelyoo's artwork and excited to hear more about THE ZRO HOUR. Eternia, DJ JS-1 and Randy Mason stopped by during the day to show support.
