Last Night In NYC: Verizon & 300 Entertainment’s #Freestyle50 Challenge Event with Kevin Liles, London On Da Track & more

Freestyle. The pulse of hip hop culture that fuels creativity, freedom and lyrical skill. In the beginning, freestyling refined the art of lyricism. Today, it takes on a new meaning, defining the way in which we pioneer our way through life. Freely, boldly and without boundaries.

To honor this movement, Verizon partnered with 300 Entertainment to find the nation’s best freestyle lyricist with the launch of the #Freestyle50 challenge. To celebrate, both companies kicked things off with a celebration for the new series that included special invited guests, artists, media, and industry tastemakers.

Hosted by LowKey of YouHeardThatNew.com and Beats1, Key Hosts Kevin Liles (300 Entertainment Co-Founder and music executive) & London on da Track (Music Producer and Songwriter), guests with performances included: Power 105.1‘s The Breakfast Club host, DJ Envy, along with A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Dave East, Astro, Casanova, Maino, plus more.

Attendees were treated to light bites at NYC’s own Espace paired with specialty cocktails and music by DJ Envy.

The national competition will award seven aspiring artists the gig of a lifetime as opening acts across upcoming 300 Entertainment’s artist tours. They will then compete in a live, freestyle cypher event in Atlanta for a chance to win the grand prize of a single deal with 300 Entertainment and a cash prize of $10,000.

The #Freestyle50 challenge is providing a platform for up-and-coming artists to not only showcase their talents, but celebrate themselves and build upon their careers. Verizon and 300 Entertainment are encouraging people to freestyle about who they represent and how they are shaping and navigating culture – freestyling their way through life.

The #Freestyle50 challenge was inspired by Verizon’s 7GB for $50 prepaid offer exclusively at Walmart for a limited time.

Instructions: To enter, share a video on Twitter or Instagram freestyling to the instrumental of “Spend It” by Dae Dae using hashtag #freestyle50challenge and tagging @Verizon.

Supakali Keeps It “1000” with Jay Pres [New Music]

In a span of three years, emerging Atlanta artist, Supakali, has accomplished a lot, independently. He has released two projects, opened up for Rick Ross in Washington DC, performed in venues and festival stages across the US, and is always winning over new listeners, while expanding his fan base. Over the Summer, the Georgia native took on the Big Apple as he made a temporary move to focus on his music career.

During his stay, Supakali recorded new music, shot a music video, performed a couple shows, and linked up with Harlem’s own, Jay Pres – who has worked with artists such as Dave East and Tray Pizzy. Together, the two emcees are a dynamic duo in the studio and it’s evident on their first ever collaboration. With Kev Cairo on the beat, “1000” will have you cranking up your speakers and singing along to the hook.

Forget “keeping it 100,” Supakali and Jay Pres keep it all the way 1000!

Supakali’s The 5th Quarter drops soon and will serve as the precursor to his long-awaited Soon You’ll Understand album.

Dave East is fresh off delivering his new project Kairi Chanel as well as announcing his new deal with Mass Appeal x Def Jam and he wastes no time delivering a visual for standout track “Type of Time.”

“Type of Time” is a rugged record where we find the Harlem emcee reflecting on making it out of the trenches, and his transition to being one of the hottest newcomers in the rap game.

I’m tearing Louis down / I’m tearing Fendi down / I’m hot, that’s a Fendi now / Jacket say Fendi now / Won’t pay for no verses / I smoke in the back of that Bentley now / I did not have a lot / We did not have a lot

Decked out in designer everything, East overlooks the city his sights set on taking over the Big Apple and beyond.

Watch “Type of Time” above. You can catch Dave East performing at the Highline Ballroom with special guests Tuesday Oct. 18.
