Raekwon and Jay Electronica Headlining Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival
It's time to bust out your calendar: The 2014 Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival is happening July 9 to 14, and the lineup for the 10th annual event is looking impressive.
Who's headlining? At the top of the bill are the legendary Chef Shallah Raekwon and Jay Electronica. As one of the core members of the Wu-Tang Clan, Raekwon represents the birth of hip hop, while Electronica is another emcee that has played an important role in the genre. The Source noted that since joining Roc Nation, the New Orleans rapper has been under the radar with the exception of a few memorable singles. Meanwhile, fans have been eager for his highly anticipated debut album, "Act II," to drop. Could this festival be his opportunity to preview a few tracks or announce the release date? There's no telling - you'll have to buy tickets when they go on sale next week to find out.
