J. Period x Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival

O and I were there last year when J. Period took the stage for what we thought would be a normal DJ set. We figured he'd spin a couple of records and get the crowd hyped. He did more than that as he bought out a gang of guest artists. Apparently it's J. Period's thing to get the crowd hyped with special guest at BHF. He's on the bill again this year and he's got a few surprises in store! I'm excited to see who will be rocking with J. Period this year. Chea!
Brooklyn Bodega & Mixtape King J.Period (MTV Top DJs / Official DJ Hero™) are pleased to announce another exciting edition of theJ.PERIOD LIVE MIXTAPE—an electrifying 30-minute DJ set featuring a TOP SECRET LINE-UP OF HIP HOP LEGENDS – live onstage for the 5th consecutive year at BROOKLYN HIP HOP FESTIVAL (SATURDAY, JULY 10, 2010)!

The “J.Period Live Mixtape” brings the excitement of a J.Period mixtape to the stage – LIVE! – and has become notorious for igniting the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival crowd into a frenzy year after year! Previous “J.Period Live Mixtape” surprise guests have included: Black Thought, Brand Nubian, Crooklyn Dodgers (Special Ed, Masta Ace + Buckshot), EPMD, Smif'n'Wessun, Chubb Rock, O.C., Crazy Legs (Rock Steady Crew) & more...

Fans never know who will take the stage next - some guests are planned and some are completely impromptu - but the result is always one of the highlights of the Festival. When Black Thought took the stage for the finale of 2009's Live Mixtape, the roar of the crowd was deafening... and his freestyle over “Brooklyn Go Hard” was unforgettable.

This year, J.Period has assembled another all-star cast of hip hop legends guaranteed to bring BHF fans to their feet...but the secret is under wraps until showtime!!! Hints? One guest will pay tribute to a fallen comrade... One guest will keep the Native Tongues alive... One guest will illustrate how a real MC controls the crowd... And the grand finale...? We ain’t sayin nothin. Any guesses?

Join Brooklyn Bodega, Saturday July 10, under the bridge in DUMBO Brooklyn, for an amazing lineup of hip hop, with headlining acts including: De La Soul, Boot Camp Clik, Money Makin Jam Boys and The “J.Period Live Mixtape.” It’s guaranteed to be another incredible year at Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival 2010... Don’t miss it!!!
