It’s the 50th anniversary of Hip Hop so get hype for a night of unforgettable beats as Old School meets New School in an epic battle! Students will have the opportunity to showcase their skills and creativity as they have the option to use samples of 90s hits and turn them into their own unique beats. The submissions will be judged by old school Hip Hop icons Onyx and Marq Hawkins and new school producers Whitney Taber and the winner of LAFS last year’s lyrics battle, alumni Louisvilla. More special guests will be announced! Get ready to vibe to the beats and be inspired by the next generation of hip hop artists. This is a night you won’t want to miss, so bring your energy and let’s get ready to rumble!
