International DJ EASE, the 2013 Roc Raida Gong Battle Champion (with video)

After a grueling/stressful Gong battle, International DJ Ease came through with the win. There were unwanted rematches, broken turntables, screaming matches, hurt feeling... You know, all the stuff that you should expect from a grudge match like The Gong Battle. The audience is encouraged to boo and if the judges don't like it, they will literally Gong you out. And that damn gong is super loud. We will get into the details after the jump, but first, let me say DJ Ease ruled the competition. Below is one part of the 7 routines he had to master in-order to win. This is the R.I.P. Routine. More info about the competition after the jump...
