Chicago born rapper Cecil Blutcher won this year’s Movin’ On Battle of the Bands on Friday in Alumni Hall. The graduate student will be the opening act at Penn State’s annual music festival.
“I don’t know what to feel yet, but I’m just excited,” said Blutcher in regards to his victory, “I’m all about positive energy and love and spreading that.”
Cecil won over the judges with his high energy and challenging lyrics. He says that his music focuses on “breaking down stereotypes” in every way. Now he will have the chance to spread his message on the same stage as popular artists Sammy Adams, Misterwives, X Ambassadors, Nelly, and Walk The Moon.
Movin’ On 2016 will be held on Friday, April 29 at the Penn State Blue Band IM Field. If you want to check out Blutcher’s music before the concert, you can listen to his new mixtape here.
