Alright, let’s be real… you occasionally find yourself perfecting your inner Jay-Z while getting ready for work. Your rhymes… they flow like water from the faucet as your washing your face. Your dream of standing on stage next to Kanye (so he can steal your moment, of course) last longer than a tube of toothpaste. Does that sound like you? Well, have we got a score for you. Red Bull EmSee is hosting a battle series designed to find the best freestyle rappers in the country and give them a national platform to show their skills and earn acclaim.
This year’s eight-city tour stops in DC at The Fillmore. The Trill OG: Bun B playing master of ceremonies. Up-and-comer Big K.R.I.T alongside veteran emcees Joe Budden and Devin the Dude will be doing double duty and judges and performers.
The winner of the DC qualifier will advance to the finals in Atlanta this fall where he’ll vie for the national championship and an opportunity to record with a headlining producer of his choice. For information on other Red Bull EmSee tour stops, please visit www.redbullusa.com/emsee.
