2011 Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival


Brooklyn Bodega, producers of the 7th Annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (BHF), are excited to announce this year’s headliner – Q-Tip. Brooklyn Bodega is working closely with Q-Tip to create creative programming for this year’s Festival. Not just a headliner, Q-Tip will work with Brooklyn Bodega to curate “Q-Tip & Friends,” a celebration of Hip-Hop through the lens of his 20+ year career. Brooklyn Bodega will be working directly with Q-Tip to mine his personal Rolodex and create once-in-a-lifetime live on stage collaborations to bless Brooklyn this Summer. Q-Tip & Friends will feature, amongst others, Diamond District and Ali Shaheed Muhammed.

Q-Tip embodies the mission of The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival and Brooklyn Bodega: highlighting Hip-Hop’s legacy as an agent of artistic progression, community building and social change. As an artist, MC and producer, Q-Tip is Hip-Hop with a career that connects generations of fans as well as artists.

“This is going to be a memorable event. Q-Tip and A Tribe Called Quest have been personal favorites of mine since day one. We were lucky enough to have De La Soul headline in 2010, this is the perfect one-two punch. The curation aspect is truly unique. It combines education, a dope show and a celebration of Hip-Hop music and culture. Exactly what we are about at Brooklyn Bodega. We hope to install this format for years to come and continue to celebrate the best of Hip-Hop. ”
- Wes Jackson, Executive Director, The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival
