Brooklyn Bodega, producers of the Annual Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, announced today that they will be teaming up with Hip-Hop indie powerhouses, Duck Down Music and Blacksmith for Duck Down vs. Blacksmith, a star studded Hip-Hop showcase next Tuesday, October 19th, during the CMJ 2010 Music Marathon in New York City.

“We are proud to support two New York City based hip-hop labels as they offer the best talent from each of their respective rosters for the most authentic CMJ Hip-Hop showcase. Duck Down, Dru [Ha], Buckshot and Noha have always had a place in our Bodega family since the Festival’s beginning at the Brooklyn Brewery Yard in Williamsburg. Similarly, it is an honor to work with Blacksmith. We have worked with [Talib] Kweli and [Corey] Smyth for longer than many have been in the game. Together these two brands represent two of the strongest rosters in the marketplace. We are excited that we are able to help roll out the red carpet for all of NYC and the CMJ marathoners.”
— Wes Jackson, President, Brooklyn Bodega

“For Duck Down, we’ve always felt like family to the Brooklyn Bodega team and are excited to once again together create quality programming for the city that never sleeps, the birthplace of Hip-Hop. It’s especially fitting this year, as we celebrate our fifteen year anniversary, that the groups who launched Duck Down are representing the label at the CMJ Music Festival. Fans in New York City will also get to see the newest affiliate of Duck Down Music- Black Rob perform at this event.”
— Noah Friedman, Marketing Director, Duck Down Records
