Hip-Hop is a place where politics, fashion, music, art and culture all intersect. Wes Jackson, Founder and Executive Director of the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival and President of Brooklyn Bodega shows the social movement that’s in the music and Hip-Hop’s role in creating social change.
Told It First Hand kicks off with Buckshot and Evil D of the legendary group Black Moon. They will sit down to talk about the 20th Anniversary of their debut album, ‘Enta Da Stage’, the art of rhyme, the art of production, re-establishing Brooklyn as a cultural hub, The Boot Camp Clik, making Timberland cool, and more. How have these two artists been able to survive together and separately over two decades that has seen most of the contemporaries fall by the wayside? You’ll just have to join the conversation to find out!
Tickets are $10 or free for BHS members. Admission includes one free beer courtesy of Brooklyn Brewery.
