Show & Prove 2012 in Motion, Rasheed Chappelle Wins First Prelim Event

2012 Show & Prove Flyer
We’re fast approaching the 2012 installment of the annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival presented by Brooklyn Bodega. In the meanwhile, the 4th annual Show & Prove Hip-Hop concert and contest series is in motion. There will be three preliminary events (the first one was last week) and one “Super Bowl” event, of which the winner earns a chance to perform on the hip-hop fest’s main stage opening for a slew of established artists. Each preliminary event will feature four performers – one of which will go on to battle it out at the Show & Prove Super Bowl for the opening spot on the BK Hip Hop Festival’s July 14th line-up. As far as I know, the performance roster has yet to be announced, but judging from last year’s, which was headlined by Q-Tip and featured Kendrick Lamar, MOP, Homeboy Sandman, and Random Axe among many more, it will be dope. For detailed info on Show & Prove and the Hip Hop festival, hit up KevinKnottingham or Brooklyn Bodega. Before you do, make a mental note of the the dates and watch and listen to visuals from 2012 the Show & Prove series’ first winner, Rasheed Chappelle, and 2011’s overall champion, L./\. — a Brooklyn up and comer and a seriously dope MC who happens to be female.
