Hasidic Hip Hop Artist Gets Down with Brooklyn BP Markowitz

Crown Heights’ Hasidic Hip Hopper DeScribe (Shneur HaSofer) premiered his “Harmony” music video and got down tight with Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz at Borough Hall Monday.

“Harmony” celebrates diversity, understanding and harmony among the Crown Heights’ African American and Jewish communities.

“I have always believed that music, like sports and food, brings communities together,” said BP Markowitz. “I applaud DeScribe for creating the ‘Harmony’ song and music video, for celebrating Brooklyn’s diversity and for reminding us all that, overwhelmingly, Brooklynites live side by side in peace. Mazel tov!”
