As the Sno-Core Tour ambles to get off the ground on the West Coast, yet another mini-festival combining elements of hip-hop and hardcore with snowboarding and skateboarding has been announced for the East Coast.
Eminem, Black Star, Murphy’s Law, Farenheit 451 and DJ Stretch Armstrong have all been tapped for the three-day “Brooklyn, Vermont” urban lifestyle and music festival, which is being sponsored by “The Fridge” magazine and will be held on February 19 – 21 at the Mount Snow Resort in Mount Snow, Vermont.
For DJ Armstrong, the performances will mark some of his first public appearances since the highly-publicized split with Bobbito Garcia, his co-hosts on the highly influential “Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito the Barber” radio show that ran for 8 years on such New York stations WKCR and Hot 97.
In mid-February, Armstrong, who helped break such acts as Nas, Big Punisher and Mase onto a national scene, will be taking to the web to premiere a new internet radio show here
at MTV Online. Armstrong’s first scheduled guest will be Inspectah Deck from the Wu-Tang Clan, and the broadcast will feature exclusive interviews, freestyle footage and new tracks.
