Rub-A-Grub
Do or Dine (1108 Bedford Ave., Brooklyn)
2-10pm
$12 in advance

This Memorial Day weekend Do or Dine and Sound Liberation Front are teaming up again for “Rub-A-Grub”, a food and music backyard party featuring Bed-Stuy hip-hop legend Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest), DJ Amir (Kon & Amir) and a special menu by Do or Dine.

DJ & Producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad is known around the world as one-third of the legendary hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest. An integral part of ATCQ’S iconic productions, Ali joined J-Dilla and Q-Tip in the collective, The Ummah after ATCQ’s breakup and then later formed Lucy Pearl with Raphael Saadiq. Ali has also built up a solo career, beginning with his 2004 debut LP Shaheedulah and Stereotypes, featuring the dance song All Night.

For over two decades, DJ Amir Abdullah has stayed alive in the music business by a careful balancing act. On the one side, DJ Amir is a club rocking, crate digging, turntable purist. On the other hand, Amir Abdullah is a deft businessman, working behind the scenes at such venerable labels as Fat Beats Records, Rapster/K7 Records in Germany, Label Manager of Wax Poetics and founder of 180 Proof Records. As half of Kon & Amir, Amir has toured the world over, turning the duo’s initial underground following into a worldwide network of fans

Join us for an After Party with our friends at One Last Shag as we continue the dance party and good times.

Featuring:
+ Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest)
+ Amir Abdullah (Kon & Amir)
