This Saturday October 6th, hip-hop artist MC Lyte returns to Brooklyn for Restoration Rocks! The 6th annual music festival is presented by the Bedford-Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, in collaboration with Soul of Brooklyn. The event kicks off at 12 pm and ends at 5 pm.
The festival features a performance by one of the best female lyricist, MC Lyte. Lyte also founded the organization Hip Hop Sisters Network to promote positive images of women. The event will include performances by Brand Nubian, Maimouna Youssef, Martin Luther, poet phenom jessica Care moore, along with Steffanie Christi’an and Black Women Rock. Black Women Rock also includes one of my fave rocker chicks, Res. Restoration Rocks! will be hosted by Tai Allen of Vice Lounge and Dr. Aletha Maybank, assistant commissioner for the Department of Health & Mental Hygiene.
As you can tell, I am super-hyped about this event. I will be one of the many in the crowd bobbin’ my head to what promises to be one of the ultimate hip-hop events in Brooklyn. And, if you live in Brooklyn and are not planning to be there, you are really playing yourself.
See what happened when Yasiin Bey, formerly known as Mos Def graced the stage at the 2011 Restoration Rocks event with the Brooklyn Phil (Philharmonic).
See you this Saturday at Restoration Rocks on Fulton Street!
