Ghostface To Headline Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival In June

Legendary

Wu-Tang MC Ghostface Killah will join the likes of Big Daddy Kane, Lupe Fiasco,

and Rhymefest when he headlines the third annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival on

June 23. "Ghost

is simply in his own category. His track record of hits is over 10 years long,"

said festival chair, Wes Jackson in a statement. “He has rocked with everyone

from Beyonce to MF Doom. Who else can say that? His versatility and borderless

creativity is exactly what the BHF is all about. As we move park- wide we couldn’t

ask for a better MC at the top of the bill." Joining

Ghostface this year at the Tobacco Warehouse in DUMBO, Brooklyn will be Queens

rapper Consequence, Skillz, and Brooklyn-based rap group Tanya Morgan. “We

are very excited to be part of the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival. The event is one

of the most highly anticipated concerts in New York [and] from what I can tell

it’s a crazy event to be aligned with,” DonWill of Tanya Morgan told

AllHipHop.com. “I have never been to the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival so I’m

lookin’ forward to just being there too. The line up is crazy man and for

us to be listed up there with skillz, quence and ghost not only makes us feel

appreciated but also puts a lil’ extra pressure on our performance, but we

ain’t in the business of letting people down so don’t miss the show!”

The concert featuring Ghostface will take place on June 23, but the festival

has expanded to include other events such as the Stax Records 50th Anniversary

Celebration, a screening of Wild Style, and the David Alan Harvey photography

exhibit. The

Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival is free although a minimum $5 donation is suggested.
