Sean Price Added to 2007 Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival Lineup
May 29, 2007 Producers of the 3rd Annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival are proud to announce the latest addition to their BHF lineup on June 23rd, Brooklyn’s own Sean Price. Sean Price and the Boot Camp Clik have graced the BHF stage before as special guests, and this year the BHF is proud to make it official so the MC can represent for Brooklyn in his own back yard.
Known as one-half of the group Heltah Skeltah, the self-proclaimed “Brokest Rapper You Know” has much to smile about these days, receiving critical acclaim for his recent solo album releases, Monkey Barz and Jesus Price Supastar. From Heltah Skeltah’s own Noctural to Smif-n-Wessun’s Dah Shinin’ Sean Price is amongst one of the most classic MCs. He is currently gearing up for the release of his Master P mixtape in stores this Summer.
“I’m exuberantly thrilled to put my incredible god given talents on display for all of Brooklyn to see,” stated Sean Price about his upcoming performance. “I will get busy. With the success of my latest album Jesus Price I’m not the brokest rapper you know anymore but with the Festival being in BK I’m just a $2 metro card away. If you see me on the train you know my name. SEAN P.” More Brooklyn artist announcements are expected this week.
Sean Price joins a stellar lineup for June 23rd, and will be performing along side Ghostface, Skillz, Consequence, Dres, Emily King, El Michels Affair, Tanya Morgan, Large Professor, and J.Period. The event will be hosted by Uncle Ralph McDaniels.
