Now THIS is an event!
The Miltown Beat Down finals are once again on the horizon and once again, organizer Jordan “Madhatter” Lee, has taken the competition to new levels.
The event’s details have finally been announced. Keeping with the tradition of having guest judges who have industry background, Lee was able to secure Jake One and Vitamin D via his partnership with Big Tune, Red Bull’s nationwide beat battle.
The good news doesn’t end there.
You might recall that Jordan added performances this year, as a way to enhance the overall experience. People have been very split on this decision but I like it. What I like more is that Jordan was able to get former Roc-A-Fella artist Freeway to be the headliner of the performances, with Frankie Flowers opening. If you haven’t heard Freeway’s recent project with Jake One on Rhymesayers, you should familiarize yourself immediately.
And the good news doesn’t stop there. Jordan also informed me that the winner of the finals is going to go on to the regional level of the Big Tune competition! How awesome is that? I would venture to say “really awesome.”
Congratulations to the 4 finalists: Zeekzilla, Lex Luther, 40 Mil, and DJ Peru.
Regardless of who wins and goes on to Minneapolis, I think it’s safe to say that Milwaukee Hip-Hop is the true winner here.
Thank Jordan when you see him.
