MaddJazz Flips ‘King’s Dead’ in New Routine

Chicago DJ and turntablist MaddJazz has flipped “King’s Dead” in a new routine for DJcityTV. The former DMC and Red Bull Music 3Style competitor applied his technical scratching and beat juggling to the track.

The hit song from the Black Panther soundtrack boasts an all-star lineup of Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake. The track reached No. 21 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and was DJcity’s 11th most downloaded track of January.

In 2013, MaddJazz appeared on DJcityTV’s acclaimed Chicago episode of the Cutting Room, alongside DJs Trentino, Big Once, Boi Jeanius, and Flipside.

Watch MaddJazz’s 2015 Thre3style Chicago Routine

Some of our readers might remember MaddJazz from the Chicago edition of DJcityTV’s “Cutting Room” series. The Windy City’s epic throw down is considered by many as the best of the series, and MaddJazz’s scratching abilities are one of the reasons why. In early February, he put his skills to the test once again during the 2015 Red Bull Thre3style Qualifier in Chicago. MaddJazz went up against some of his city’s best party rockers and turntablists, including his “Cutting Room” partner, Boi Jeanius, who took the crown. Although MaddJazz came in at second place, his Thre3style set was one of the most energetic we’ve heard this year, and today he shared it exclusively on DJcityTV.
