That’s right, Red Bull Big Tune Beat Battle is going to be coming to First Avenue on August 26th. You can expect to see Freeway performing as well. The show is 18+ and the doors open at 8PM. If you want more information you can go to Red Bull Big Tune for more details. It’s too bad this is my first day back to class, I’d love to go. I sure hope the Audio Perm crew is going to be at this one…

On April 11 Red Bull Big Tune made the leap from bass pumping clubs to the living rooms of 340,000 music fans during its American television debut on the BET network. The 30-minute TV show chronicled the adventures of 16 up-and-coming music producers as they embark on the final battle to determine once and for all who has ‘the big tune’ and who will walk away with the coveted title of Red Bull Big Tune Champion and a chance to collaborate with a well-known recording artist in Red Bull Studios.
When the final battle ended the crowd determined that the producer with ‘the big tune’ and the ultimate winner of the competition was 17-year-old Charles ‘C-Sick’ Dumazer of Chicago, Ill. In the time immediately following the final battle, C-Sick had a lot to contemplate. Who would he select to work with in the studio? After some deliberation he selected Def Jam recording artist Nas, one of hip-hop’s most profound lyrical poets. Nas is well known for his 1994 debut album Illmatic, which many consider to be one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. His upcoming tour and album with Damian Marley has many on the edge of their seats.

Nasty Nas recorded this track over Red Bull Big Tune winner C-Sick beat to make a pretty sweet track.
