For the ninth annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, Adam “MCA” Yauch of The Beasties Boys will be honored by a moment of silence and a tribute.
Headliners for the festival, which goes from July 10 to 13, include Pusha T, EPMD, and Redman, whom will play on the last day. Held at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Wes Jackson, the festival’s executive director, and Brooklyn Bodega DJ Rawbeatz, will be handling the tribute. Brooklyn Bodega also wants to release a mix of Beastie songs that will have remixes of key tracks throughout their careers.
Jackson says in a statement: “We couldn’t go another year without taking time out to honor what MCA did for our culture and our music.”
