Wale To Headline Red Bull Producer Battle In D.C.

Washington D.C.’s native son, Wale, will headline the Red Bull Big Tune producer battle in the Nation’s Capital on September 24 at the 9:30 Club.

The battle is the seventh in the series leading up to the finals, slated for December in New York.

Beatsmiths from Houston, Chicago, Oakland, Seattle, and Detroit have competed so far.

The winners at the D.C. battle will appear in the final.

Wale and producer Nottz are scheduled to perform at the event, which kicks off at 8PM local time. The witty rapper, who released a “Seinfeld”-themed mixtape, is the main draw and proceeds from the event will go to Words, Beats and Life, a D.C.-based community program. The cost is $5 or free if you RSVP at Red Bull’s Big Tune Web site.

The battled is the brain child of Vitamin D and Jonathan Moore. The pair birthed the idea in 2004 and three years later partnered with Red Bull. A music forum discussion will be held the day before the event, on September 23, at the Columbia Heights Youth Center.
