@TheMadBloggers_ Celebrate Brooklyn! w/The Roots, Talib Kweli, Blitz The Ambassador and more.

Sunday capped of The Mad Bloggers weekend of Hip-Hop with a free concert for the official launch event for OKAYAFRICA, presented by CELEBRATE BROOKLYN! at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY. We got there about an hour late but as we shuffled through the crowd, it felt and looked like we got there four hours late. It was jam packed. I can't tell whether it was because of the price of admission or the artists that were set to perform. What I can tell is that all walks of life was in attendance. And in abundance as well. Packed, I tell you. So much so that they shut down people from entering. That didn't stop most from hoping over a 4 foot fence. Q and I even saw the homie Statik Selektah and friends get their Olympic hurdle on. Hahaha. It was that serious. From cops trying to curb the fence jumping, to people having all out picnics, to the beer guzzlers to the regular fans, it was quite an event. At the end of the night with all the positives and negatives, it was a great, great night for music. Hope you didn't miss it. If you did, this is the best I can do for you considering I was mostly in fan mode and less in work mode. Haha. Check it!
