Raekwon at Prospect Park

Raekwon "The Chef" promised surprises before his Celebrate Brooklyn show at Prospect Park, and while no special guests turned up on the night, it didn't stop this packed-out show from being a sticky celebration of hip-hop's gnarly golden age. Large Professor and Joell Ortiz kicked off the show with party-starting hits ("Brooklyn" and "Brooklyn Bullshit" went down predictably well), and the night's most grin-inducing moment was Smif-N-Wessun arriving onstage with Tek pushing his baby daughter in a stroller (see pics, above). A sturdier-than-ever Raekwon blasted through snips of hits, which was alternately glorious ("C.R.E.A.M.") and frustrating (we got one verse of "Incarcerated Scarfaces")—right up to the park's 10:30pm curfew.
