Prospect Park Bandshell, Brooklyn
Many of the greatest names in the game have passed through the legendary Lyricist Lounge, and what began 20 years ago as an open mic night in a studio apartment on the LES has become one of the most revered showcases in hip-hop. Def Jam core artist GHOSTFACE KILLAH, the most prolific record-maker in the Wu-Tang Clan pantheon, headlines this birthday celebration. Celebrate Brooklyn! and Lyricist Lounge have a history that dates back to 2006 and includes shows with KRS-ONE, a Crooklyn Dodgers reunion, Big Daddy Kane, and Raekwon—it’s always a highlight of the NYC summer in hip-hop.
