Missed the Rappers Vs. The players of the event? There is No problem. Check out the official recap complete with all the engraving of a soccer tournament.
Hollywood, CA - The same competitive drive that urges rappers to make a splash in the Hip-Hop was alive and well, the day of yesterday, June 23, in Hollywood when HipHopDX - along with Twitch and Capcom — put in the #NextLevel Street Fighter V Tournament driven by Energy Applications.
Professional recording artists Slim Jximmi Rae Sremmurd, Trinidad James, Futuristic, Murs, Safaree, Lil Fizz, Siya and DJNina9, faced professional players from K-Brad, Nick Tanella, Chris Tatarian, Julio Fuentes, Chris Gonzales, Brentt Franks and GooTecks. To even the odds, each rapper was paired with a professional player, in the double elimination that had to both sides, frankly, talking shit.

In the end, there can only be one winner, and a Team of Futuristic (driven by Chris Tatarian) took home the grand prize: the official Application of the Energy trophy and a pair of one-of-a-kind Necalli edition Playstation 4 consoles.
The event took place on the Platform of the Records office (independent of the powerhouse that brought the world Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller, Mod Son and more) in Hollywood, and guests enjoyed a complimentary open bar stocked with Hennessy, Luc Belaire Rare Rose, Purple Haze liqueur, Lady of Tequila (that you whipped up special concoctions with Applications exclusively for the event) and Pabst Blue Ribbon, while a feast with Los Angeles-based food truck, Son Of A Bun.
Great greeting for Energy Applications, with blood of Game, Capcom, the King of Ice, the Son of a Bun, Sparx Case and Contraction to make the event a success.
