Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest Adds Young Guru, Evitan, Uncle Ralph McDaniels, Chuck Chillout and More to the Mix

(AllHipHop News) It’s nearly July, and the reps from Brooklyn Bodega are in full planning mode for the 2012 Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival (BHF 2012).

This year’s festival, to be held from July 9-14 at various New York City locations, boasts Busta Rhymes of Native Tongue, Leaders Of The New School, and Cash Money fame as its headliner for the culminating concert on July 14. Brooklyn Bodega recently announced that Philadelphia rapper Freeway would open for Busta Rhymes during the show that has typically included an “and Friends” portion in years past.

Added to the BHF 2012 kickoff event, The Show & Prove Super Bowl, are DJ/engineer Young Guru and rap group Evitan, consisting of True School MCs, Dres of Blacksheep and  Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest.

Festival host and pioneer Uncle Ralph McDaniels of Video Music Box will join the “Salute The DJ” event, along with Chuck Chillout and Sucio Smash. KissFM host Bob Slade will be joining BEI, and “The Dummy Clap Film Festival” will show two screenings on Friday, July 13, including the documentary, The Infamous Mobb Deep.

Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest is the featured DJ for the “Dummy Clap” after-party, and the BHF 2012 Official Concert After-Party on July 14 will host Fat Tony and French-Chilean MC Ana Tijoux.

Nearly 200 donors helped to support the BHF 2012 with over $15,000 in donations through its recent, online Kickstarter Campaign.
