(AllHipHop News) In less than two months, the 8th Annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (BKHHF) will kick off with a week’s worth of one-of-a-kind events, celebrating all things Hip-Hop via panels, MC competitions, concerts, and much more.

In early May, festival sponsors announced that Busta Rhymes, who signed with Cash Money in November, would be headlining the festival’s final-day concert with “Friends,” much like last year’s “Q-Tip and Friends” spectacle that included Black Thought, Kanye West, and 2012 headliner, Busta Rhymes.

The 2012 BKHHF, which takes place from July 9-14, will kick-off its week-long festivities with the Show & Prove Super Bowl. The Bowl will feature three winners from preliminaries rounds competing for a chance to perform on the festival’s main stage during the finale concert on Saturday, July 14.

Other events throughout the week include “You Wasn’t With Me Shooting In the Gym” on Wednesday, July 11, The Dummy Clap Film Festival on Friday, July 10, Family Day and an After Party at the Knitting Factory on Saturday, July 14.

2012 will also mark the third year of both the BKHHF’s Salute the DJ event, which takes place on Thursday, July 12, as well as the Bodega Education Initiative (BEI) on Tuesday, July 10.

The week will come to a close on July 14 when Busta Rhymes and Friends’ headlining performance caps off a day that promises a number of other MCs who have yet to be named.  There will also be a special tribute t fallen Beastie Boys member, Adam “MCA” Yauch a.k.a. MCA, who recently passed away from cancer.
