I just sent my score sheets to Chesney Snow and have officially completed my judging duties for the American Beatboxing Championships. There are different categories for the competition: Solo Battles, Cover Battles and MC Backing Battles. Talent comes from all over and is all ages. There were even a few ladies representing quite lovely. The prize pool is now worth over $3000.00 with every finalist walking away with a prize at least $150 in value! It is a groundbreaking effort and I’m hip hop proud of the work being done to legitamize beat boxing as a form of art.
Other judges included-Adam Matta, the legendary–Kenny Muhammed aka the Human Orchestra, Joshua RKB Silverstein, Chris “Shockwave” Sullivan, Hassan Salam and others.
