1. WATCH: Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival 2012 — A Conversation with Bill Adler.


    As part of BHF's first ever Dummy Clap Film Festival, there will be a special screening today - Tuesday, July 10th - of one of our favorite documentaries , Big Fun in the Big Town , the 1986 Dutch production about NYC hip-hop. Two of the film's main subjects are iconic Def Jam artists LL Cool J and Run-DMC. Festival Executive Director Wes Jackson sat down with the label's former Director of Publicity Bill Adler , to take a look back at the early days of Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin's imprint and to break down the significance of Big Fun . Peep the video of Adler (who along with ego trip’s Chairman Mao will be part of a Q+A session following the screening) and get more details about the event after the break...
