Brooklyn Bodega CMJ 2009 Pac Div, Big Sean, Jesse Boykins III, Diamond District, DJ Parler, Host: Wes Jackson

Brooklyn Bodega does it again with a very dope show. The acts nicely complimented each other with funky, smart melodies and talented lyricists. Good times. I was just impressed all around with the production through performance of everyone involved here. ...Proof once again that there is classic, great hip hop being created right now.
