So as you may or may not have heard, the Red Bull Thre3style Battle finally came to Chicago on Thursday, April 28th at The Mid. I was lucky enough to be one of the 8 DJs selected to participate, along with my Music Trust brethren DJ Trentino, Hot Dog Records co-founders Zebo and Marco Morales, Crossfader King Matt Roan, Jay Illa, DJ Jem, and Ghetto Division honcho Charlie Glitch. The judges for the evening were none other than DJ Craze, Chuck Flask, and Jay-E (Nick Catchdubs was originally supposed to be the third judge but his plane was late).
After a month of nonstop work, including literally hundreds of hours putting together, organizing, and cutting down my routine, this is what I came up with.
After all the votes were tallied, my bros DJ Zebo took third, DJ Trentino locked up second, and I took the grand prize. Now its off to Vegas in the fall to compete in the 2011 Red Bull Thre3style US Finals! (More details coming soon on that).
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported me that night, and all the positive feedback I’ve gotten via Twitter, FB, and this very site. Extra special love goes out to my beautiful wife Erica for putting up with me over the last month, and also to my favorite DJ in the world Kid Cut Up. I’ve been sayin this, but I WOULD NOT have won the battle without him.
Chi-town, WE DID IT.
