Kickstarter Complete, New QSU Battle, DJ Traps Wins, Qbert & Mr Cerdan

seattle skratch masters

qbert kickstarter

BIG thanks to everyone who contributed to Kickstarter Campaign for Qbert's new album Extraterrestria! They smashed their goal and word on the street is they now hold the record for the highest Kickstarter launch in the Hip Hop category... ahh yea! There was a big party in San Francisco to celebrate where Qbert performed with several emcees featured on the new album, click here to watch the recap from Billy Jam

Now, back by popular demand, it's the latest QSU Battle: The Slice

This underrated Level 1 Skratch Technique is really easy to learn and is a great addition to your skratch vocabulary. Q wants to see who can incorporate it best in your flow - you can mix it up but he wants to see at least 90% Slice skratches in there. You have 3 weeks to enter, the deadline to submit your video to the "Battle" category is March 10. The winner will receive a cool surprise prize, and the winning video will live forever in the official Slice Lesson. 

Note: Please limit your battle entries to 1 minute!

Watch the new Welcome Video for some Slice tips and be sure to study the official lesson:

illest dj battle winner dj traps

Speaking of Battles, DJ Traps won the Illest DJ Bay Area Battle last weekend! You may remember Traps as the 2013 West Coast DMC Champion, he's also been holding it down on QSU and beyond for years. This was a very heated battle amongst some of the best Bay Area battle DJs: Primo (2011 QSU Valedictorian), Jamz Dean, LazyBoy, Dose, G Tek, Iso, Habit, Rated R (Sleeprockers). Big congrats to Traps on the win - check out the final round of the Cut 2 Cut Skratch Battle below courtesy of our friends at Battle Ave:
 
 

Also - Qbert was recently in Seattle for the 10th Anniversary Zulu Battle and had a chance to handoff the Official Plaque to the 2013 QSU Valedictorian Mr Cerdan [click the link to read our exclusive Mr Cerdan interview]! They also got a chance to cut it up together on stage and at the afterparty, shout out to our friend DJ Cues for the footage:
