The Heatwave: A Fundraiser For Sessions LA

12.26.12 5 years ago 3 Comments

We’ve told you about the amazing work Sessions LA does before – helping youth develop their critical thinking and awareness while encouraging them to improve their skills as MCs, DJs and beatmakers. For those of you in the Los Angeles area, you have an opportunity to support the program and check out a star-studded production battle tomorrow hosted by Bambu at Nola’s. The battle is an extension of their Microwave Mondays weekly online competition, where the youth are given a sample to flip and a prize is awarded to the producer who does it the most justice.

The sample for the live battle will be chosen by the inimitable Exile, and judges and performers include Houseshoes, Amp Live of Zion I, Open Mike Eagle, Dibia$e, and Willie B of TDE, among others. All proceeds benefit Sessions LA, allowing them to continue providing guidance and a safe place for dozens of young Los Angelenos who have found a second family through the program.
