RJD2 auctions beats to benefit Japan, awards Columbus native Grand Prize in Insane Warrior contest

RJD2 recently launched a contest that asked fans to submit their visual, audio or written representation of any track from We Are The Doorways, an album he made under the alias The Insane Warrior. Lots of people submitted, but the grand prize went to the video you see here, created by Joey Thomas and University of Cincinnati’s Walter Nini, a Columbus (Clintonville) native and son of Old 3C Records head Paul Nini. The song is “The Water Wheel,” and video will make you laugh.

RJ is also auctioning off five original beats on ebay, with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders. Details:

Renowned producer/DJ RJD2 has set up a one-time-only auction of five original beat tracks on eBay in an effort to contribute to the Japan relief with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders.
