Hieroglyphics - "Exciting" (Download) 

Bay-Area Supergroup Releases New Single In Conjunction With Akomplice Collaboration

With the legendary Hieroglyphics crew's West Coast Tour, presented by Marvel vs. Capcom 3 well underway and going well, the Bay-Area supergroup are releasing a new song "Exciting" in conjunction with a Hiero-inspired hooded varsity jacket from Akomplice Clothing. Taking their already popular hooded varsity jacket, Akomplice has created a unique version bearing both the Hiero and Akomplice logo. Creating the original track "Exciting" just for the occasion, the collaboration shows off the talents of what both parties do best.

This no-holds-barred track points out the flaws of other crews by showing off the lyrical word play of the legendary Hiero crew. The mix of celebratory horns and shimmering guitar riffs provide the perfect backdrop as Opio kicks things off with, "Cause I'm exciting/ Pleasurable but listening I'm only tryna tell you what your records keep on missing/ I'm only tryna help out your crew/ It really doesn’t matter cause you don’t know what your doing." The track is the Hiero crew at its best and a glimpse into what to expect in 2011.

Festival founder Wes Jackson speaks on BHF inspiration

Brooklyn Bodega, producers of the 7th Annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival (BHF) announced this year's dates today - July 11th- July 16th, 2011.

Entering its 7th year as New York City's largest Hip-Hop cultural event, Brooklyn Bodega will continue to build upon the expansion seen in 2010. Last year the Festival doubled in length going from a three day affair to a six day celebration of music, dance, art, food, and the borough of Brooklyn.

The programming this year will see the return of the Bodega Education Initiative, Salute The DJ and the Show & Prove Super Bowl. Family Day and the Main Stage performances, the anchors of the Festival will of course return as well. Events will be held throughout Brooklyn from Williamsburg to Fort Greene to DUMBO.

In 2010, The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival brought over 15,000 people to Brooklyn, showcasing independent local, national and international talent. In 2011 The Festival will continue its mission of honoring Hip-Hop culture in all of its wonderful diversity.

"We made great strides last year doubling the programming of BHF. This year our focus is to do it better. Provide more resources for developing artists and entrepreneurs, more outlets for local business and of course showcase the best and brightest our culture has to offer. This year look for us to continue to bring the best talent down to the Brooklyn waterfront. We are also expanding the 'Bodega Education Initiative' to a full day symposium. 'Show and Prove' and 'Salute The DJ' will be growing as we give a platform to not only the next great MC but also our elders behind the wheels of steel. Family Day, one of our most popular events will also see more unique programming. After all, Brooklyn Bodega is for the babies. All in all, we are looking forward to another stellar year."

Show & Prove (MON. 7/11) - A showcase of independent and local Hip-Hop talent. There will be three preliminary S&P events in April, May and June. The three winners will compete at the S&P Super Bowl on July 11th for the opportunity to open up on the Main Stage on July 16th. To register artists must submit through Sonicbids.

· Bodega Education Initiative (TUES. 7/12) - A day of panel discussions and seminars designed to explore intellectual and academic issues facing the Hip-Hop community.

· Hip-Hop Art, Dance & Film (WED. 7/13) - A night of film screenings and visual art exhibitions.

· Salute The DJ (THURS. 7/14) - Dedicated to the backbone of Hip-Hop, the DJ. Event will feature performances by the best DJs from across the country. Up-and-coming DJs will also have an opportunity to participate similar to Show & Prove.

· Kickoff Party (FRI. 7/15) - As we ramp up for the big day on Saturday we will host a party to formally welcome Festival goers, past and current artists, community leaders, press, donors and various members of the Bodega Family.

· Family Day (SAT. 7/16) - This "block party" celebrates the core message of Hip-Hop: social change and individual empowerment. It features music, performances and demos from a host of family centric organizations.

· Main Stage Performances (SAT. 7/16) - The culmination of the 2011 programming. Old School, New School, Funk, Soul, Local and International artists converge upon downtown Brooklyn and the waterfront for a full day of the best Hip-Hop music our culture has to offer.

· After Party (SAT. 7/16) - Artists and attendees celebrate the end of Festival week with surprise performances and DJ sets.
