According to the Calendar, the beginning of Summer is marked Sunday, June 21, 2015. If you were in attendance at the Yardcore Bashment Party or even stepped foot outside long enough to sing a song, you'd beg to differ. Needless to say, the wonderful folks at the Redbull Music Academy blessed us with a treat, a FREE Dancehall/Reggae concert in Fort Greene Park in The Republic Of Brooklyn. The crowd and mood was live, peaceful, eclectic, energetic, and fun.
Aside from various Djs playing classic riddims several performers graced the stage. The ones I caught were Kranium (Queens resident by way of Jamaica who just inked a deal with Atlantic Records) Lisa Hyper (Jamaican born artist and dope performer) and Assassin (Dancehall veteran who's recently worked with Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar) salute to all the acts including the ones I've missed but Assassin stole the show with his energy, comedy, and set list. Summer is going to be MAD!! (Written by Marino Mauricette)
