Last night (Oct. 24th) Red Bull EmSee took place at “The Filmore” Silver Spring, Maryland featuring Big K.R.I.T., Devin The Dude & Joe Budden. I was invited to the event by the Red Bull DC reps however, I was so busy with my career I was unable to attend.
The free event is an invitation only rap battle series designed to find the best freestyle rappers in the country and give them a platform to show their skills. This year’s 8-city tour stopped in DC where Bun B played the master of ceremonies. Big Krit, Joe Budden & Deven The Dude served as judges and performers.
The rapper who won the DC leg of the tour advanced to the Red Bull EmSee finals in Atlanta this fall, where the final winner will earn the oppurtunity to record with a headlining producer of their choice.
Although I was unable to make it my friends over at Beats & Ballads caught some of the action. Check out the clip as Joey took to the stage & performed “Sober Up“. Peep it out.
