Once again, another Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival has happened and I haven't been. Like I keep telling myself, "there's always next year".
This year saw another great line up including Pro Era's CJ Fly, CyHi The Prynce, DJ Rob Swift with Brand Nubian and the headliners Jay Electronica and Raekwon. As always there were a few surprise guests who showed up. Most notably were the performers that Jay Electronica brought out.
A lacklustre verse from Mac Miller was followed by Talib Kweli and J.Cole jumping on stage to perform Reflection Eternal's "Just Begun". There were always going to be suspicions that Jay's label boss would show up and after a delayed and mistimed cue, Hov himself did show his face for a few cuts.
