Big KRIT, The Cool Kids, and more to join "Made In Durham: A Little Brother Block Party"
Phonte and Rapper Big Pooh reveal the event's full lineup with Booker T parody
The legendary Hip-Hop group Little Brother released their seminal debut album 'The Listening' on 2.25.2003!!!
All year-long, Little Brother co-founders Phonte and Rapper Big Pooh have been celebrating the masterwork's 20th anniversary, starting with a four-city tour back in March.
Last week (8.1.2023), they took to social media to announce that the year-long celebration would be brought back to its roots on 10.7.2023 with "Made In Durham: A Little Brother Block Party".
Today (8.8.2023), the duo revealed the show's full lineup with a parody of Wrestling legend Booker T's infamous N-word slip in a 1997 WCW promo.
Starring Phonte as Booker T and Rapper Big Pooh as Stevie Ray-- known as Harlem Heat, one of wrestling's greatest tag teams of all time --the two deliver a spot-on reenactment of the moment that segues into the show's lineup.
Watch the hilarious promo below...
Hosted by comedian Sam Jay, "Made In Durham: A Little Brother Block Party" will be headlined by Little Brother, with supporting performances by Big KRIT, The Cool Kids, and Zo! & Tall Black Guy.
The festivities kick off at noon, and the performances will begin at 3PM.
The event will take place at 310 East Main St, Durham, North Carolina 27701.
Purchase tickets on Etix.
Ranked among Rolling Stone's "200 Greatest Hip-Hop Albums Of All Time", 'The Listening' helmed a pre-social media era where Alternative Rap found its audience through online message boards.
As pioneers of "grown man" or "every man" Rap, Little Brother was rightfully placed among Billboard's "Greatest Rap Groups Of All Time".
The group's new documentary, "May The Lord Watch: The Little Brother Story", will arrive later this year.
