Congratulations to Mic Stewart to winning the Red Bull EmSee National Championship. It’s great to see Mic Stewart win this as I remember meeting him 4 years ago and being astounded at his ability to freestyle. Watch the recap video below.
The Philadelphia MC toppled seven other finalists in fierce freestyle battles, earning $10,000 and an opportunity to collaborate with the producer of his choice at Red Bull Studio in L.A.
Red Bull EmSee is an invitation-only battle series designed to find the best freestyle rappers in the country and give them a national platform to show their skills and earn acclaim. The nine-city tour makes its final stop Atlanta for the Red Bull EmSee National Finals on May 29th at Masquerade with Phonte playing master of ceremonies. Winners of the regional qualifiers hosted in Los Angeles, Seattle, Philadelphia, Houston, Boston, Washington D.C., Detroit and Miami will face off for the national title in front of a judging panel of hip-hop heavyweights, including the dynamic David Banner, Island Def Jam’s Big K.R.I.T and Gang Starr’s DJ Premier; while Grammy-award winning producer/DJ 9th Wonder commands the turntables throughout the competition.
