Just because the Fourth of July was Sunday doesnt mean the partys over. Check out tonights kick-off event for Brooklyn Bodegas sixth annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festivals Show & Prove Superbowl, a competition/showcase for rising hip-hop artists to prove they can pump up a crowd. The six-day festival features panels, film screenings, and theater. Highlights coming up later in the week include the Bodega Education Initiative: The Legacy of J Dilla, featuring a conversation with Dillas mother, Maureen Ma Dukes Yancey, and Q-Tip, and a Classic Hip-Hop Film Night screening of 1992s Juice (1992), starring Tupac Shakur. The festival wraps July 10 with a Family Day for the kids and a concert, hosted by Uncle Ralph McDaniel, with De La Soul, Black Moon, Rakka Iriscience, DJ Babu, J Dilla Ensemble, Those Chosen, and Aquil.
