Event: 8th Annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (July 9th-14th 2012)

Established in 2005, the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival has been a major staple in the borough for a while now. There's a good chance your favorite MC is either from Brooklyn or has at one point graced that stage.

This year, Busta Rhymes will headline and Philadelphia Freezer, Freeway will come through and hold Philly down...the only way he knows how.

You can cop tickets RIGHT HERE.
And, as the BHF 2012 is clearly focused on performances, the festival also will be showcasing classic Hip-Hop films like Wild Style, which starred Hip-Hop pioneers Fab Five Freddy, The Cold Crush Brothers, Rock Steady Crew, Lady Pink, Lee Quinones, Grandmaster Flash, Grandmaster Caz, and many others.

The film’s showcasing is part of the Inaugural Dummy Clap Film Festival, that will also feature the acclaimed documentary Big Fun in a Big Town by Dutch filmmaker Bram Van Splunteren, as he documented Hip-Hop for one week in 1986.
