The borough that birthed Biggie was proverbially in the house for this past weekend’s 9th Annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. And, just as expected, a rich hip hop lineage was just as present and as deep as the rumbling crowd. Aside from the overcast skies and a few sprays of rain, the day’s programming went on without a hitch or kink at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 5. The entire waterfront area’s been remodeled and renovated to accommodate a state of the art recreational destination for residents and visitors alike. Those in attendance were able to partake in a tent village of food and hip hop related vendors and sponsors before and during the show. Along with attendees, were local celebrities and hip hop royalty like Video Music Box’s Uncle Ralph and legendary Brooklyn-based movie director Spike Lee, strolling through the festival. All while the main acts kicked it backstage before the action popped off.

The evening’s stage showcase began with a local and independent bang from acts like Bklyn Stickup, Chicago’s F. Stokes, Las Vegas up-and-comer, Dizzy Wright, and Brooklyn’s native son Dyme-a-Duzin. All of the MCs held down their own respective weight and warmed up the crowd to their new sounds.
