KDAY FM and Sean Healy are proud to present The Battle for Los Angeles, a unique opportunity for local unsigned hip hop artists to showcase their talent on the radio and at KDAY's annual Krush Groove concert, April 2014.
Sean Healy Presents (SHP) and KDAY have both been longtime supporters of urban music, and in partnering on this competition, they've found a new way to do what they do best: give a platform to up-and-coming artists. KDAY, a favorite on the dial for hip hop fans, helped bring the West Coast rap scene into prominence; launching the careers of N.W.A. Core members Dr. Dre and DJ Yella, among others, with their World Class Wrecking Cru, a popular mix show back in the day. Veteran promoter SHP has been giving local hip hop acts opportunities to play key stages and open for national-level headliners – everyone from Kendrick Lamar to Bone Thugs to E-40, and many many more – for nearly 20 years. Both companies look forward to finding and promoting the next big hip hop act in The Battle For Los Angeles.
LA's finest 40 bands/artists will battle it out on 4 different stages throughout Los Angeles (10 bands on each show): Nov 15@ Los Globos, Nov 21 @ Tru Hollywood, Nov 22 @ The Roxy Theatre, and Nov 24 @ The Gaslamp (Long Beach). Judged by a rep from KDAY and other industry executives, 4 winners will be chosen – 1 from each show – to broadcast their music and interview on a KDAY 2-hour special. This radio show, to be pre-recorded and aired Sunday December 1st, will include an exclusive dialogue with each group, and will showcase 2 songs per band. Of these 4 bands, a final winner will be picked by listeners from an online poll at webookbands.com to perform on KDAY's famous annual Krush Groove April 2014.
