In the latest artist addition for the 2011 A3C Hip-Hop Festival, The Red Bull Music Academy will present An Evening with Big Daddy Kane: Sowing the Seeds of Hip Hop on Saturday, October 8. Brooklyn native and hip-hop innovator, Big Daddy Kane headlines a night of music that pays tribute to the birthplace of hip-hop and the site of the 2012 Red Bull Music Academy – New York City, NY. The evening begins with an intimate conversation with Kane on his career, hip-hop and much more, hosted by Karl Injex. The show then moves into a musical journey through NYC’s five boroughs showcasing classic hip-hop joints spun by Da Beatminerz and performed by some of today’s most cutting edge names including Skyzoo, J-Live, Jean Grae and Boy Jones, son of the late Ol’ Dirty Bastard.
Popular duo M.O.P. has also been added to the festival line-up and will headline the AllHipHop.com Breeding Ground Showcase on Saturday, October 8 along with Dead Prez.
