2008 Gong DJ Battle: NYC Heat

Created by Roc Raida from the X-Ecutioners crew. Hosted by Lord Finesse and Lord Sear and will feature a performance by Joell Ortiz. Thanks Christie! buy tickets

In 2006, weary of the corporate competitions the DJ battle scene had to offer, 1995 DMC World Champ, Roc Raida didn’t complain like some namby-pamby. He’s a man! He made up his own battle! Roc Raida’s Gong DJ Battle is so maniacal, so exacting, that only the most bravehearted of DJs will enter. It’s raw head to head battle action combined with pure hilarity. Not only does Raida invite the most battle scarred DJ alumni to man the gong as judges, competitors are subjected to the ranting and inside jokes of Lord Sear; instigation from Lord Finesse; rumpus making by hype man DJ Fat Fingaz plus DJ Boogie Blind chiming in with timely samples to further add to the ruckus. You never know who will show up and what will go down at a Gong DJ Battle! Don’t miss it!
