Last night 2010's Red Bull Big Tune--the beat battle brainchild of local legends Vitamin D, J. Moore, DV One and Jake One--culminated with a final competition in Chicago. Origninally the Austin regional runner-up (behind Seattle ex-pat Budo), Ypsilanti, Mich. native 14KT took the crown. For winning, he'll will get studio time with an A-list emcee of his choice at Red Bull Studios in Santa Monica, Calif. Last year's victor Frank Dukes (Detroit) worked with Ghostface Killah, 2008 champ C-Sick (Chicago) chose Nas and our very own Brainstorm worked with Young Buck after winning in 2007.

Seattle's 2010 Regional winner, Risingson, was ousted by San Francisco victor Hitmakers--who is just one person, Justin Yonan--and our runner-up, Portland native Trox, was beat out (no puns) by Minneapolis's champ G Mo.
