The 7th annual Grace Jamaican Jerk Festival will kick off at Roy Wilkins Park on July 23rd. This year we are expecting a large turnout of 20,000 people for New York’s Biggest Caribbean food festival. Headliners such as Morgan Heritage, Allison Hinds, Konshens and Barrington Levy are all set to take the stage giving us a taste of the classic hits we know and love.
Known as the ‘The female Vybz Kartel’ HoodCelebrityy will be the opening act, prepping the crowd for the main stage acts. Hood was featured on Cardi B’s ‘Back It Up’ with Konshens, as well as dropping her own hits such as ‘Island Girl’ and ‘Sit Down.’
Her mixtape ‘Rap vs. Dancehall’ is a plethora of straight vibes and heat. This tape is very reminiscent of Vybz ‘Pon di Gaza’ especially with the rhythms and the cutthroat lyrics that make you wanna bruk ya waist, but at the same time turn up. Catch Hood shutting down the stage at the Jerk Festival.
