The 2012 mtvU Woodie Awards brought some of the biggest names in indie rock, pop and hip-hop to Texas for an all-day, all-in nonstop music festival under the sweltering sun, where haze-hop MC A$AP Rocky shared a bill with Queen-leaning parlor pop act fun., Cleveland “Wild Boy” rapper and Hottest Breakthrough MC of 2011 Machine Gun Kelly, art rock darlings Walk The Moon and artists like Lil Jon, who really need no qualifier at all.
So, in the spirit of creative collaboration, I asked this year’s Woodies artists to freestyle a few lines backstage at the Woodies. The result: Mac Miller, Machine Gun Kelly (fresh off his Breaking Woodie win), T. Mills, Walk The Moon, Chiddy Bang (freestyle world record holders), and Gossip came together for the first-ever Woodies Freestyle. Consider it Buzzworthy’s version of the BET’s legendary cyphers, except… not at all legendary or even legit.
+ Watch Mac Miller, Machine Gun Kelly, T. Mills, Walk The Moon, Wallpaper and more Woodies artists freestyle, check out Woodies Awards Festival performances, and tune in to the 2012 mtvU Woodie Awards Sunday, March 18 at 8/7c on MTV and mtvU.
