UPDATE: here’s more footage from last night’s epic Red Bull Big Tune Battle of the Beats event at Opera in Atlanta. Jadakiss performed, and aspiring producers battled for the chance to collaborate with a major artist (last year’s winner, C-Sick, got his track laced by Nas)….then Alchemist and Just Blaze went beat for beat in a friendly “beat-off” (lol, ok, that didn’t sound right)

Look how happy the whole crowd is! Now this is one of those perfect hip hop moments. I remember how fun Swizz Beats vs. Kanye West was at Summerjam a couple years ago. This is even better.
I can’t wait for more footage of this to come out (hit me if you see any), looked amazing!
