Win Free Tickets for Uncle Luke and 2 Live Crew Reunion at LIV Miami

Categories: Giveaways


Booty, booty, booty, booty, booty, booty, booty, booty, booty.

In 1989, Uncle Luke and 2 Live Crew launched a rap revolution with the release of their unrepentantly filthy slab of Miami booty bass, As Nasty As They Wanna Be.

It set millions of asses a-quakin'. And it blasted that hard-core 305 party vibe 'round the world. But it terrified the American Family Association, Florida politicos, and other social conservatives, all of whom got Luke and the Crew slapped with an obscenity ruling and even arrested.

They fought for their right to freedom of speech. They took the dispute to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. And they won.

Two years later, Luke and 2 Live Crew broke up. And they haven't shared the stage since '91. But now the greatest Miami booty bass band ever is back for "one night only."

Ever seen someone "Pop That Turkey"? Just ask 12th Planet 'bout it.

Pop That Turkey...

It's not some weird Japanese game show. It's the most wobble-gobble way to twerk off a million calories before you stuff your piehole with -- you guessed it -- pie.

The night before Thanksgiving, you can ready your gullet with ear-shattering, booty-sweat beats from your pals 12th Planet, Craze, and Ape Drums. These dudes know a thing or two about eating and dropping da bass. You can trust them.

Of course, it's not a holiday without presents. (Seriously, Thanksgiving, WTF?) So Crossfade teamed with Grand Central to offer free tix for the Pop That Turkey showdown. Aw yeah, dis gon' be good.

Win Free Tickets for Capital Cities at Grand Central Miami

Capital Cities' Sebu Simonian and Ryan Merchant.

"In some ways, yes. In some ways, no."

That's how Capital Cities' Ryan Merchant feels about his and bandmate Sebu Simonian's so-called "overnight success."

As he pointed out to Crossfade a few months ago, the duo's biggest hit, "'Safe and Sound' was put out in 2011, so it actually feels like kind of long, steady growth of the song." They paid dues, writing commercial jingles and struggling for a shot. And it all paid off, "when," as Merchant says, "the song crossed over to Top 40 and became a global hit."

Over the past year, Capital Cities has toured the world's arenas with Katy Perry. But now the twosome is returning to downtown Miami's Grand Central for a more intimate affair.

Just check the cut for a chance to win free tix.
