6th Annual BROOKLYN HIP-HOP Festival 2010 :: i'll be live painting

I'll be painting live again with my girl, Younity's founder Alice Mizrahi. You may remember, she was painting right next to me at AFROPUNK, two weekends ago. This will be my second time painting live at the festival (I was there two years ago, courtesy of Mike from YUME), hopefully the weather will be as great as back then. This year's featured band is DE LA SOUL, which is a big deal, as they've been trying to have them headlining the festival since the beginning of the fest.

On Thursday, Brooklyn Bodega dedicates a night to the backbone of Hip-Hop, the DJ. Performances from the best DJ's from NYC to LA divided into 2 categories: The first will see Bobbito, Spinna and Waajeed rock solo sets and then go record for record as they spin the best Soul, Hip-Hop, Jazz, House and whatever flavor they have in their crates. The second will feature a four turntable extravaganza with Rob Swift of The X-ecutioners and DJ Rhettmatic of The Beat Junkies. These world renowned and champion Turntablists will whip the crowd into a frenzy with a display of turntable wizardry.
