There’s no place more suitable than Brooklyn NY to honor the art form of hip hop. Home to some of the greatest rappers, the Salute to Hip Hop concert will take place Wednesday June 18th at the Herbet Von King Park. The Salute to Hip Hop is a free show presented by City Parks Foundation’s Summer Stage in association with NYC radio station 107.5 WBLS. This year’s line-up includes DJ Bent Roc, a “master mix” disc jockey for WBLS who has over 20-years of spinning under his belt.
Bent Roc’s good friend and hip-hop pioneer Chubb Rock will also be preforming at the Salute to Hip Hop. Rock entered the rap scene in the early 90’s, reaching #13 on Billboard’s Top Hip-Hop/R&B chart for his 1991 release The One. Rock is expected to perform songs such as “Treat Em Right,” “Just the Two of Us” and “Lost in the Storm.”
Former Kangol Crew member Dana Dane will also join DJ Bent Roc and Chubb Rock on the Salute to Hip Hop stage next Wednesday. Known for his clever rhymes and unique style, Dane was first introduced to the limelight after the success of his first full-length album Dana Dane with Fame in 1987. Rounding out the line-up is Edward Archer aka Special Ed. Special Ed is a Brooklyn native and rapper with recognizable classic hits such as “I Got It Made” and “I’m The Magnificent”. All acts are projected to deliver a fun-filled show that will have concert goers rapping along.
