UTC to host Beat Battle next Friday

Music lovers, are you curious about the hidden talent that lies deep within Tech campus? Think you might have some of your own? Well, now your chance has come to prove how talented you really are!

Next Friday, Nov. 20, the Music Production Enclave (MPE) will be hosting their third annual beat battle that will be located at Under The Couch. The format of the tournament will consist of a bracketed style, and each entrant will be showcasing a few of their hot beats during each round of competition.

The event will run from 7-9 p.m. and an after party will be hosted by the African American Student Union that will run until 2 a.m. Admission to the battle is $1 and the entry fee is $10. Or if you’re simply interested in attending the after party, it will cost you $2.

In past years, the battle has been judged by a small panel of people not associated with Tech. Most have been people with a hip-hop background. For the first beat battle that was performed, two of the judges were Paul Garcia of the Real Hip-Hop Network along with rapper Furious Stylz.

So far, there are less than ten people who have entered the tournament, including the talented Wonton Soup, who is the winner of last year’s battle.

We know there are more talented music makers out there, so we encourage any interested people to sign up! The event is open to all Tech students and alumni. There is no entry deadline, but there is a maximum number of entrants, so act quickly!

There is a $100 scholarship prize for the winner of the tournament.
