Everyone knows that Atlanta is the breeding ground for the top artist in the music industry. This weekend Battle Hottlanta took it directly into the ring, giving artist a chance to lyrically box it out! Featuring over twenty of the top artist in Atlanta, contenders fiercely competed through a three-day elimination event to determine the best artist. Giving the grand prizewinner a chance to win $10,000 in a combination of cash and industry services.
The prize included $1000 cash, a mix tape hosted by DJ Such N’ Such and DJ Unk, free photo-shoot, a music video, and a performance slot at the Atlanta Record Pool along with several other industry services.
Battle Hottlanta was held in College Park, GA at J Mac’s and as the crowd began to form, the judges took their seats. The Panel included judges Paulette Carter Talk of Fame 101, Smokehouse CEO, DJ Southwest Atl, Magnem PI/DJ Trapper Jon, Black Polo (Atlanta Factor) and a few other heavy hitters were in the building.
With a full house, the artist entered the ring and the first round began! DING! With two songs to execute, artist went round for round through the event knocking out a few contestants and leaving the judges with twelve to choose from. Holla Dolla, Soufside Tonio, ProHaize, Taj, Mr. 217, OC, Lil Wo, Calrod, Remo, Young JV, Dummaboy Rose & Codeen.
Paying close attention to detail, the judges were looking for originality, crowd engagement, appearance and of course SWAG! After putting on a show that had the entire crowd wanting an encore, young but fierce Taj at fifteen years old came out on top delivering a knockout performance. She took the number one spot literally “cranking that get out” as she kicked other contenders out of the ring claiming her victory. Congratulations TAJ!!
Chatejah George started her musical journey in the summer of 2012 introducing herself to the world as Taj. No stranger to the battleground, she has been taking the southern rap by storm winning different competitions consistently and is truly the talk of the town. Starting at a young age, Taj has always been artistic; developing skills with different musical instruments it was only a matter of time before she started using her natural instrument. Although she raps and sings, Taj is also a model and a writer. She can be found on social media sites such as Iamtherealtaj where you can check out some of her blogs. She is currently working on her 1st mixtape and with the heat she is delivering I encourage everyone to stay tuned for what this young artist has in store for us.
