have been blessed to be a part of a lot of big shows, but this year’s festivals

aren’t just the biggest or best shows in Hip-Hop, they are some of the most

important musical experiences overall,” Chang Weisberg of Guerilla Union,

the festival’s sponsor, said. “It has never been more critical to the

success of quality music. The live Hip-Hop experience is so special because there

are just so few happening. I can’t remember the last time this many quality

emcees and musicians have ever been gathered to showcase their talents. The summer

of 2007 will be remembered as the year that quality Hip-Hop came back.”The
