Brooklyn Bodega is announcing discounted ticket packages making the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (BHF) New York City's largest but most affordable event.
"Hip-Hop events that cost $50, $60, $100 and more are antithetical to the roots of this culture. Hip-Hop started out in the park with people like Cindy Campbell [Kool Herc's sister] throwing parties for $1 to buy back-to-school clothes. Corporate interests have hijacked our culture charging exorbitant fees that make Hip-Hop events available to only one homogenous group. With these ticket packages, we are cutting closer-to-the-bone to pass on savings directly to our Bodega Family. I also want to take this time to shout out other organizations that venture to make their events affordable to the masses as well: Celebrate Brooklyn, Summer Stage and Tools of War (among others)." - Wes Jackson, Executive Director of The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival

PROTE-J released the video for his song "Bigger Things" off of his new mixtape "Dope Raps & Kit Kats". Says Prote-J, "Bigger Things" is a song that means a lot because I talk about me growing up in Papua New Guinea (a 3rd world country, just north of Australia). I had some footage of my last visit so we put together this video for everybody to see what it's like."
The new mixtape "Dope Raps & Kit Kats," presented by DJBooth.net is out now!

Eternia was so inspired by Elzhi & Will Session's reworking of Nas' classic "One Love" that she released a special remix version. This extended remix showcases one of Eternia's greatest verses peeling back even more layers from this gifted lyricist.
During this weekend's broadcast of THE UNDERGROUND DUGOUT, Herold Noel Jr. and Martine Emile of H.View TV stopped by and filmed a bit of us in action. Tune in every Saturday from 3-5 PM to see us live at sdworldvision.com

Bekay teams with producer/DJ Dbefekt for this short film titled "Remember". Bekay and DB portray Jews on the run from Nazis during World War II. Filmed in the Czech Republic, Bekay spits a heartfelt narrative about the wickedness of the holocaust. I'm seeing big things for Bekay as he looks great on film and in period costume. He dedicates the video to all those in history that have ever suffered through prejudice and persecution due to the color of their skin, culture or religion. Salute!
