Brooklyn MC MIKE’s annual Young World festival is quickly becoming a haven for a burgeoning young, forward-thinking community anchored by hip-hop culture. With a focus on black musicians and creatives, the festival provides a fully accessible afternoon of music, visual art, food, clothes, and children’s activities in Bed Stuy. The ultimate goal is to inspire the next generation of black youth to see creative professions as a viable option and create their own creative communities – thus “Young World.” For its third iteration—and second in Herbert Von King Park— MIKE invites Noname, the critically acclaimed Chicago rapper and community organizer, Brooklyn’s own Jay Critch, the North Carolina philosopher-poet MAVI, LA psychedelic beat queen Georgia Anne Muldrow, Florida’s 454 and his unique sped up cadence, AKAI SOLO, one of the most exciting names out of Brooklyn’s hip hop underground, and ELISE, the dynamic Discwoman DJ.
