DD172 Releases BlueRoc Festival Mixtape

Last week, Damon Dash and his DD172 performance space put on a showcase of one of the more interesting independent scenes being cultivated in hip-hop right now.

Fans gathered at the Brooklyn Bowl — a combination bar, restaurant, concert hall and bowling alley located in the Williamsburg neighborhood — for a showcase of recent local favorites and up-and-comers. For those that couldn’t attend, a new mixtape featuring soundboard recordings from the evening’s performers — Curren$y, Big K.R.I.T., Ski Beatz, Smoke DZA and few other relative unknowns on Dash’s BlueRoc Recordings — has now surfaced.

The free recording features cover art with an aerial shot of the packed venue as well as some tripped-out typography that would be at home on a Grateful Dead bootleg from the early ’70s. Curren$y will be the biggest draw here. As the night’s headliner with a robust local following, the rapper performed some new cuts such as ‘King Kong’ and the Mos Def-produced ‘Breakfast’ off the much-anticipated ‘Pilot Talk,’ which is set for release next Tuesday (July 13).

We also always recommend checking out the Southern concerns of Big K.R.I.T., who opened the show. The Mississippi-based top prospect and recent Def Jam-signee shines particularly bright on his collaboration with Smoke DZA entitled ‘The Secret,’ as well as current summer banger ‘Country S—’ from K.R.I.T.’s recent ‘K.R.I.T. Wuz Here’ mixtape.

The BlueRoc Festival tape is free and you can download here.
