Red Bull pulls out all the stops when it comes to getting the best featured artists and the best talent to provide the crowd with the right vibe for each event.
This year is no different as Red Bull has tapped Big K.R.I.T. as the special guest judge for the Red Bull EmSee National Finals in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 29 at the historic Masquerade venue.
Big K.R.I.T will participate as one of three artist judges set to pick the winner of the 2012 Red Bull EmSee competition, an invitation-only battle series designed to find the best freestyle rappers in the country.
Red Bull EmSee’s battle format challenges MCs to bring the true freestyle spirit back by adding a twist to the conventional head-to-head battle.
During the competition, MCs are posed with a variety of challenges designed to showcase their technique, creativity, and dexterity.
In addition, rappers rhyme acapella, and must come up with hard-hitting verses based on visual cues and inspirations.
This is not the first time that Red Bull and Big K.R.I.T. have teamed up as, the Mississippi rapper teamed up with the world’s #1 selling energy drink in Washington D.C. to pick the regional final winner, U.S. rapper Marine D’Meitz.
