I love music. That’s no surprise. So I’m always ready to jump at any chance there is to experience great music, in any form! One of my favorite things to do is to attend Redbull’s music events. I LOVE Red Bull’s music events. There is always a dope setting: dope music, dope atmosphere, dope drinks (occasionally). Just a dope time. One of my fave events is the Redbull Thre3style Local Qualifier, where one-by-one, six DJs take the stage and spin a 15-minute set. Last night, DJs Kidd Love, O.G Bobby Trill, Diggy Dutch, La.D.Da, Buck Rodgers, and New Orleans’ own Mike Swift, were judged on technical ability, originality, crowd reaction, and performance in this head-to-head competition. The DJ who wins the regional battle will then go to the U.S. National Final.
The show, held at Republic New Orleans, was hosted by 2010 Redbull Emcee Battle Champ and Dish Nation’s own, Headkrack. Producer/DJ Mannie Fresh, DJ Four Color Zack and DJ Hedspin sat on the judge’s panel.
The sets were pretty cool; Every DJ did his thing. Buck Rodgers took the crown and will be headed to nationals. Check out photos below for a peep of the night.
