Clash of the Titans

On June 14th Palais witnessed the clash of the two biggest authorities in urban music in Lebanon. As its name stated, it was a true clash of the titans.

The international heavyweight legend, DJ Lethal Skillz battled it out with rising DJ lil’T. With old-school classics like 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” and Khia’s “My Neck, My Back” making the packed venue reminisce the golden age of hip hop and RnB. The music inventory was not all retro though, with the freshest of new urban songs like “omg” which the clubbers all recited faithfully was lil’T added his special touch to the beats.

Lethal Skillz dealt the first blow on his trademark 12” vinyls. After an hour of intense music and upbeat MCing by Lethal Skillz himself, lil’T took to the decks with the opening phrase from the Clash of the Titans movie: “Release the Kraken”

And indeed, the Kraken was released and wreaked havoc on the dancefloor, till DJ rudE came in and electrified the beast with his bassy, gritty house beats that were the cherry on top of this magnificent night.
