The NY Hip Hop Report on BTR – Episode 009 [July 15, 2012]

By | The NY Hip Hop Report on BTR | No Comments

The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival was recapped during Episode 009 of The NY Hip Hop Report with Manny Faces, presented by Birthplace Magazine. New York hip hop history was made as Busta Rhymes, who headlined the event, reunited with Leaders of the New School and brought out A Tribe Called Quest for a rousing rendition of their collaborative classic “Scenario.” BirthplaceMag.com founder and editor-in-chief Manny Faces and Senior Staff Writer Steven Ortiz spoke about the momentous finale, as well as the main day festivities, reviewing the overall event, particularly in relation to last year’s show.

In addition, the two spoke about various upcoming New York hip hop happenings, culled from the Birthplace Magazine events calendar, as well as touching on Nas’ upcoming Life Is Good release, “Christian rap” artist DAY, and that sub-genre of rap music, and reminded listeners that what many have been calling a “New York hip hop resurgence” was predicted when starting BirthplaceMag.com, years ago.

For Episode 007 of The NY Hip Hop Report, BirthplaceMag.com founder/EIC Manny Faces and Senior Staff Writer Steven Ortiz discuss their appearance on Ife Dancy Presents The Hip Hop TakeOver on WBAI in New York City over the past weekend, and discussed a wide range of topics, including some New York-area hip hop artists making noise, Hip Hop Squares, Hot 97 and more. A call from Mike Brown in Philly sparked discussion about Rakim, 50 Cent, Azealia Banks and artists using social media to spread word about their musical brand. We had some technical difficulties that you’ll occasionally hear through the archive playback, but we are aware of it and will work to clean it up before next Sunday’s episode.
