Bodega, and The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (BHF), announces today the addition of Diamond District, Large Professor, J. Period, Rakaa Iriscience, DJ Babu and Uncle Ralph McDaniels to the 2010 lineup.
DC’s own Diamond District and mixtape king and BHF repeat offender, J. Period will perform on the 6th annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival’s main stage. Two-thirds of California trio Dilated Peoples, Rakaa Iriscience and DJ Babu, will bring their West Coast stylings to the thousands in attendancel. Hip-Hop pioneer, entrepreneur and visionary, Uncle Ralph McDaniels will again host for the fifth time. The legendary Large Professor will be on the wheels of steel during the Show & Prove Super Bowl on Monday, July 5th.
“Diamond District released one of the best albums of 2009 with ‘In The Ruff’. For a lot of people BHF ’10 will be their first taste of the Washington, D.C. trio and they will not be disappointed. J. Period is one of the few acts that have participated in The Festival for multiple years. His live mixtape with special guests has been a consistent Festival highlight. This year he has even a few more tricks up his sleeve that may even be better than Black Thought last year. We’re also honored to have Rakaa Iriscience and DJ Babu on hand, further highlighting Hip-Hop’s cross-regional artistry. And of course we are honored to have our mentor, Uncle Ralph back as our host. His dedication to Hip-Hop for over 20 years is our inspiration. If that was not enough The Extra Large Professor will be joining us for July 5th’s ‘Show and Prove’ Super Bowl. A great lineup just got better.” – Wes Jackson, Executive Director, The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival.
