Math Hoffa vs Bigg K
This was a solid battle that went down during Go-Rilla Warfare’s Crown 2 event in Chicago. Bigg K seemed to heat up as the battle went on and took this one.
Kid Twist vs Chedda Cheese
KOTD hosted this entertaining battle between two of their league’s vets known for humor and wit.
Pass vs Raptor
Coming off something of a hot streak lately, Pass makes his U.K. debut against Raptor, who has been doing well also.
Daylyt vs O Red
Go-Rilla Warfare decided to release this battle first from their Crown 2 event, and people haven’t stop talking about it since.
Bonnie Godiva vs MyVerse
Many people are praising this hour-long clash between Bonnie Godiva and MyVerse, with the majority of viewers apparently believing MyVerse to be the winner.
Tay Roc vs John John Da Don
Two of the URL’s biggest performers clashed after sending shots each other’s way for a while.
Danja Zone vs Ness Lee
Danja Zone, one of battle rap’s most respected names as of late, travels to battle Atlanta veteran Ness Lee in the latter’s hometown.
Only One vs Reverse Live
This wasn’t one of the biggest battles at Back to Baysics 3, but it was one of the best. The bars were on point from both sides.
Lu Cipher vs Madflex
Just like Only One vs Reverse Live, this battle sort of flew under the radar of bigger names at Back to Baysics 3. That being said, it was still a solid battle to watch.
Illmaculate vs Rone Set For KOTD Title Match
As Rone calls himself “Roney Baby the Prince (soon to be the king)”, it seems fitting that he’d get a title shot this February. Many people agree that he’s earned his shot with his recent performances as well.

Battle rap is quickly growing as a culture. What was almost completely relegated to street corners and Youtube a few years ago has garnered national recognition, more tv programming, Pay-Per-View events, and other attention of the mainstream media. Hip Hop icons like Eminem and Snoop Dogg have put on events for the battle scene and at this rate things can only continue to expand. That being the case, we’re here to keep you updated on all things battle rap. Now is a great time to join the culture.
