This year’s tenth anniversary celebration of the Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival brought a slew of hip-hop heavyhitters to Williamsburg. Following Jay Electronica’s set featuring Jay Z, J. Cole, Talib Kweli and Mac Miller, the legendary Raekwon had a few tricks up his sleeve for his headlining set as well.
While fans may have anticipated a Wu-Tang reunion on the stage, Raekwon switched things up for the crowd by bringing out Internet rap sensation Bobby Shmurda. The newcomer performed his viral hit “Hot Nigga.” The Chef also brought out other natives of the borough: Papoose, Troy Ave, and M.O.P.’s Lil’ Fame. Fans of classic rap got a special treat as well, with an appearance from AZ, who took the stage with “Life’s A Bitch.”
As if seeing Raekwon wasn’t enough. Peep clips from his Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival set below:
