Read on to find out who your winners for April are, and what our judges said about their tracks.

#quaranteam winner

Your #quaranteam champ is Ivan Grozny (Yves)! Our judges said:

It’s surreal! Ivan and Yuriy wake us up from our quarantine to immerse us into the sounds of the Viking era. That soaring bagpipe is a pleasant surprise that just gives you the goosebumps, doesn’t it? What an epic collaboration!

4th: Jessica M Wilkes

3rd: Gary
4th: Marley Dubbs

#aprilswitcheroo Winners

Coming out tops for #aprilswitcheroo is Bart! Our judges said:

Bart brings this home by writing the catchiest hooks that even Polyphia would be proud of! Great tones, sick lines, fantastic flow.

Runners up:

2nd: Yuriy Balkanic
3rd: Iceman714
4th: Michele Fortunato

#homecreators Winners

The ultimate #homecreators for April is Pill Clinton! Our judges said:

Micah Lyneé‘s R&B vibes beautifully contrast Pill Clinton’s raw spittin’, bouncing off each other on this well recorded, hard-hitting track. One for the homies hustlin’ on the corner.
