About Termanology:
Term was raised in the post-industrial, predominantly Latino city of Lawrence, MA. The half-white, half-Puerto Rican MC transitioned from silly freestyles at age nine to full-fledged records by 15. Constantly traveling between Boston and New York in pursuit of his dream, Termanology released his first 12-inch in 2002. Through his alliance with influential mixtape DJ (and fellow Massachusetts native) Statik Selektah, Term began earning the respect of Boston’s Hip-Hop scene with several highly acclaimed 12″ singles. At the onset of 2006, Term’s big break came when DJ Premier blessed him with one of his signature, scratch-laden beats. “Watch How It Go Down” instantly became an underground classic and Termanology appeared on Hip-Hop’s international radar. The conscious hood anthem garnered the earnest MC tons of praise, landing him in The Source’s “Unsigned Hype” and XXL’s “Show and Prove” columns. On September 30 2008, he released his debut album, Politics As Usual, to critical acclaim.

Queens, New York native Consequence is the first addition to the 3rd Annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival lineup.

Teaming up with Kanye West in 2001, Consequence has released several mixtapes, and has appeared on collaborations with West, Q Tip, Andre 3000, Seleena Johnson, The Last Poets, John Legend, Lil’ Kim, among others. He recently released his solo album, “Don’t Quit Your Day Job.”

The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival is a celebration of Hip Hop music and culture and the borough of Brooklyn. A series of free events held throughout the month of June, the 3rd Annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival looks to celebrate Hip Hop culture in Brooklyn and beyond. Showcasing performances from legends to the genre’s newest and brightest talents, the BHF has hosted the likes of Big Daddy Kane, Lupe Fiasco, Rhymefest, Little Brother, Sleepy Brown, Leela James, Brand Nubian, Talib Kweli and many others. 2007 is no different as the BHF staff keeps the Festival the highlight of the Summer.

This year the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival’s programming has been expanded to a five day celebration. Here is a brief rundown of what to expect during this year’s festivities:

When: Thursday, June 7th
What: BHF Kickoff Party celebrating 50 years of Stax Records!
Join us for a night of funky soul all night long at the powerHouse Arena in Dumbo, BK. Stax Records was home to legendary acts such as Otis Redding, Booker T. and the MGs, The Bar-Kays, Isaac Hayes, The Dramatics, The Staple Singers, The Emotions and so many more. Celebrate 50 years of Soul magic, as well as the re-launch of the label.

When: Thursday, June 14th
What: Hip Hop around the globe, featuring photography from David Alan Harvey at the powerHouse Arena
Hip hop, which first began on the streets of the South Bronx in the early 1970s, has traveled the globe, finding a home in every corner of the planet. Hip Hop’s versatility speaks to its accessibility and universality. In 2005, Magnum Photographer David Alan Harvey began photographing local emcees in the Bronx River Projects, home of hip hop pioneer Afrika Bambaataa, whose legendary Zulu Nation parties inspired a new generation of b-boys and -girls. It is their descendants that Harvey has captured in here—from Boogie Down thugs and Hollywood celebs to the local cultures of Spain, France, Gambia, Senegal, South Korea, and Thailand—revealing how hip hop has always spoken to the guy on the corner and the girl at the club, because skills and style comes from love.

When: Thursday, June 21st
What: BHF Under The Stars
Celebrate the longest night of the year with the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. This event is held in conjunction with Make Music New York, a city-wide music festival presenting free music from around the globe. More info can be found at www.makemusicny.org.

When: Friday, June 22nd What: Wild Style:The Sampler book release celebration and screening. In 1982, a small independent movie written, produced, and directed by Charlie Ahearn was released, first in Germany, Japan, and Cannes, then finally in Times Square. Wild Style, the first film to unite the underground urban art forms of nascent hip-hop culture—DJing, MCing, b-boying, and graff writing— was filmed on location in the South Bronx without permits or pretensions. Some twenty-five years after its release, Wild Style is truly a classic, having inspired countless artists, musicians, and writers with its unforgettable scenes starring the era’s most memorable personalities. We’re celebrating in conjunction with the powerHouse retrospective book Wild Style The Sampler to be released.

When: Saturday, June 23rd
What: Performance Day
The big day. Everyone who has been there before remembers Big Daddy Kane tearing it down in ’06 or Little Brother rocking their 1st Brooklyn performance. Well, here we go again. Join us for a day of performances and festivities under the sun. Consequence is just the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned to www.brooklynbodega.com for further confirmations
