Phro, Myself  (JMack) and Matt (aka PhotoMatt aka TDH Photo) will be at the historic St. Andrews Hall in Detroit tonight to bear witness to what proves to be yet another sick freestyle competition.  It'll be real tough for these dudes to be spittin' written given the format of the event (description below).   It's an 8-stop tour with Detroit being stop #7, the final being in Atlanta this year.   Although we aren't allowed to pull any video, peep the rebound in the next couple of days we'll be back with photos and audio interviews in the next episode of the HoodHype Show.  Hit the jump to peep the official RedBull Emsee rundown, footage of last years competition and the official flyer.  See you there!

Red Bull EmSee is an invitation-only battle series designed to find the best freestyle rappers in the country and give them a national platform to show their skills and earn acclaim. This year’s eight-city tour stops in Detroit on October 28 at St. Andrews Hall.  Local rap legends Royce da 5'9" (Slaughterhouse), Denaun Porter (D12) and Trick Trick (Goon Squad) will be doing double duty as judges and performers while DJ Dez (Slum Village) mans the turntables throughout the night and Bun B (UGK) hosts. The winner of the Detroit qualifier will advance to the finals in Atlanta next month where he'll vie for the national championship and an opportunity to record with a headlining producer of his choice.  For information on other Red Bull EmSee tour stops, please visit www.redbullusa.com/emsee.

Red Bull EmSee’s innovative battle format challenges MCs to bring the true freestyle spirit back by adding a twist to the conventional head-to-head clash.  During the competition, MCs are posed with a variety of challenges designed to showcase their technique, creativity and dexterity.  In addition to spitting flows over beats and a capella, MCs are challenged to come up with hard-hitting verses straight off the dome based on visual cues and inspirations.
