“I’ve known Rod and Arnold for many years and have been wanting to work with them for some time,” stated Mr. Grainge. “Rod possesses one of pop music’s most inventive and memorable voices; and we’re delighted to be part of the next great chapter in his already storied career.”

“Each year, Brooklyn Bodega works to put together a week of events that fully represent Hip-Hop culture. Creating programming for each event can sometimes be difficult but our team has once again worked toward putting together events that celebrate what is dynamic about our culture.
