To promote tonight's Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash, Roman Grandinetti of CNNCTD+ threw up this mural at 133 Ludlow on New York City's Lower East Side, declaring that Just Blaze and Young Guru hold the crown. "We Are The Champions" is a play on the Just Blaze-produced track of the same name that features Kanye West, Cam'Ron, Young Gunz, and Twista.
The Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash is the latest in a series of events going down in New York City between April 28 and May 31, all of which take inspiration from the city and collectively feature over 200 musical artists from various genres. Tonight, reggae, tropical, hip hop, and electronic musicians will battle on four stages. In addition to Young Guru and Just Blaze, Que Bajo?!, Federation Sound’s Max Glazer and Kenny Meez, and the Trouble & Bass collective will all compete in a four-hour show that promises surprise sets, guest performers, and an all-around great blend of musical styles.
The crowd determines who takes the Red Bull Music Academy Culture Clash 2013 trophy, so go out and make some noise to help crown the champs.
