King of the Dot keeps up its streak of great Battles at the Bunker with this clash between two MCs who know how to mix bars and jokes.

Jaz the Rapper vs E Hart

What’s New In Battle Rap (Feb 18)

This hour long battle from “Born Legacy 4” was a good one. However, the claims of Jaz the Rapper being gassed up here are definitely not unfounded.

Shotgun Suge vs Hitman Holla

What’s New In Battle Rap (Feb 18)

Hitman Holla makes his highly anticipated return after not battling at all last year. With this battle being so long in the making, Shotgun Suge was the perfect opponent to return against.

What’s New In Battle Rap (Feb 18)

King of the Dot recently announced their title match for “Blackout 7”. The challenger is fan favorite Head I.C.E., who many people consider to never lose battles. It should be interesting to see how he clashes with Rone, who has only battled in title matches recently.

What’s New In Battle Rap (Feb 18)

The first battler to be announced for King of the Dot’s “Blackout 7” (aside from the title match) is Gjonaj, who has become a huge name for KOTD as of late. It makes sense to see him here.
