Ghostface Killah Headlines Brooklyn Hip-Hop Fest

 Ghostface Killah is scheduled to headline the third annual "Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival" this summer.

The festival, which will take place on 5 days in June, will also feature performances from Consequence, Skillz, and Tanya Morgan. Ghostface will take the stage on the festival's last day (June 23).

"Ghost is simply in his own category," said Festival Chair Wes Jackson via a statement. "His track record of hits is over 10 years long. He has rocked with everyone from Beyonce to MF Doom. Who else can say that? His versatility and borderless creativity is exactly what the BHF is all about. As we move park- wide we couldn't ask for a better MC at the top of the bill."

"Ghost is an excellent addition but we are not done yet ," added Festival Director Alma Geddy-Romero. "In the next few weeks we will be announcing some legendary names from the past as well as some outstanding new artists. Last year we introduced Lupe Fiasco to Brooklyn and brought Big Daddy Kane home. Look for more of the same this year."

The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival will take place on June 7, 14, 21, 22, and 23.

The first two dates will take place at the powerHouse Arena in DUMBO while the last three will all be held at Empire Fulton Ferry State Park. For more info, including ticketing, visit
