Congratulations are in order for Brooklyn-bred DJ Element for winning McDonald’s Flavor Battle competition!
Back in November, I told you guys about McDonald’s 13-week national DJ battle competition which gave 24 DJs a chance to battle it out for three rounds for a chance to win $10,000. Recently, the finals were held in Miami, hosted by legendary DJ Funkmaster Flex and the three finalists DJ Arty J, DJ Jena Red and DJ Element battled it out for the Flavor Battle crown.
The competition was tough with Just Blaze, Spinderella, DJ Clue and last year’s Flavor Battle winner, DJ Risk One judging each contestant on their transitions, mixes and ability to move a crowd. DJ Rock-T from the Ricky Smiley Morning Show was also on hand to keep the crowd moving in between rounds and I was on the scene as the Social Media Correspondent.
I was also happy to see radio rivals DJ Funkmaster Flex and DJ Clue (who spent most of last year going at each other) in the same room getting along
