Want to see something truly dicey? How about having two major hip-hop events occur at the same time? On the same night as Black Star performing the entire Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are … Black Star album at House of Blues, Red Bull is having their EmSee freestyle competition down the street at Warehouse Live.

Eight freestylers from across the state will compete tournament style to move on to the finals in Atlanta, Georgia. The winner of the finals gets a trip to Los Angeles to record at Red Bull Studios with a headlining producer of their choice. With Bun B on hosting duties, performances from Trae Tha Truth, Alchemist & DJ Baby Jae on the 1s & 2s and not to mention the event has no cover charge – I’m certain someone is going to break down and have a paper, rock, scissors moment with their hip-hop choice on Thursday night.

The Houston Press has a write up on each of the eight competitors, G-Baby & Phranchyze from Austin, MC Kane, O.N.E. & Hoodstar Chantz from Houston, Playdough from Dallas, Mad-1 from San Antonio & Go Hard Jetson from Columbus. Who will take the crown? You have to be in attendance to find out.
