Red Bull Emsee Underdogs Take the Trophies
By Mike Andrews
The order of battle was decided by the flip of a coin, but the crowd’s support was often flip-flopped just as easily. As the night ended at the Fillmore in Silver Spring for the 2011 Red Bull Emsee: DC show, the spotlight was obviously left on the two least likely candidates of the night.
A free event, The Red Bull Emsee: DC show drew lines starting nearly three hours outside the new Silver Spring Venue and ultimately “sold out” an hour after doors opened. The show featured a pyramid-structure rap battle featuring eight of the area’s best freestyle battlers hosted by Texas rap legend, Bun B. Short performances were held between rounds by the night’s guest judges: Joe Budden, Devin the Dude and Big K.R.I.T.
