Northside Media Group along with the Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn, is proud to announce we'll hosting the 10th Annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival! Kicking off Wednesday July 9th at the Brooklyn Historical Society, the very special event Told It First Hand, will be hosted by Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival Founder and Executive Director Wes Jackson, who will be sitting down with Scott Stedman, Founder of Northside Media Group, the brand behind The L Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine, BAMbill and Northside Festival. The two entrepreneurs will attempt to tackle the sometimes thorny issue of gentrification in the ever growing borough of Brooklyn.
The second session will be a LIVE edition of The Combat Jack Show. Rated the #1 Hip-Hop podcast by Complex Magazine, The Combat Jack Show features in-depth interviews with icons of Hip-Hop culture. Hosted by former attorney, author and journalist Reggie “Combat Jack" Ossé. For this special show the Brooklyn Bodega crew will be sitting down with this year's artists as well as some of their favorites from the first decade of the Festival.
