Last night Red Bull returned to Atlanta for the much-anticipated 2018 Red Bull Music Culture Clash! The event, which drew in sold-out crowds, celebrates sound system culture and is based on Jamaican music battles from the 1950s, better known as sound clashes. Several of ATL’s most legendary rappers and personalities stopped by throughout the night, including Pastor Troy, Derez Deshon, Gorilla Zoe, Trillville, TJ Kravitz, Mavado and Archie Eversole.

Mija and Kenny Beats
Based on Jamaican music battles from the 1950s, better known as sound clashes, Red Bull Music Culture Clash is comprised of four stages, each featuring a different crew repping their unique background and sound – with genres ranging from trap, which will be at the forefront of this year’s competition, to dancehall and hip-hop, to electronic, Latin and beyond. The crews then battle it out to take home the title of Red Bull Music Culture Clash champion.
This year’s crews included Zaytoven with Zaytown Global, Mija & Kenny Beats with Don’t Think, Kranium with Frequent Flyers, and Fuego with Fireboy Sound. Ultimately Kranium with Frequent Flyers won over the crowd with their Jamaican reggae flare, special guests, and crowd-pleasing dubs and began their reign as champion.
Throughout the week, Red Bull Radio hosted LIVE FROM ATLANTA, where Red Bull Radio Shows broadcasted live from Atlanta’s famed Patchwerk Studios in conjunction with Culture Clash. Special re-airs of programming can still be heard this weekend, featuring guests including Big Boi, Organized Noize, and Zaytoven.
