IF YOUR IN MIAMI #MEMORIALweekend U DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS EVENT!!!! Math Hoffa vs E Ness Mathis bought to u by http://battlebox.tv/
Coming seemingly out of nowhere and catching the battle world off guard, Tony D has more or less redefined the phrase “meteoric rise to stardom”. The London emcee has been in the battle circuit for approximately a year but has already solidified his spot with the top tiers. With over 12 battles in that time, Tony worked his way to the top of Don’t Flop with ease and snatched the title from O’Shea in what was a classic title match. After defending it against Deffinition, Tony D remains the Don’t Flop champion, preparing to guard it yet against Shotty Horroh in the future. With a resume that includes other heavy hitters such as Illmaculate and Arkaic, Tony most recently battled at the Don’t Flop Checkpoint event against URL representative Charlie Clips. Known for his rapid fire delivery packed with an unrelenting punch after punch style, Tony D has earned his reputation as a threat. Making his first overseas trip to take part in King of the Dot’s Vengeance 2 event, Tony squares off against character assassin Real Deal in what promises to be a classic match up.
Having laid low for the recent months, much to the dismay of his fans, Real Deal has certainly become more selective of his opponents, but retains top tier status by always bringing his best. After coming up in the Grind Time era, the Pittsburgh emcee tore his way through top tier competition from the get go, claiming W’s over veterans such as Fresco and Cortez. Moving on in his career, the self proclaimed Working Man’s Emcee faced off agains the likes of TheSaurus, Loe Pesci, and most recently B-Magic in what was his debut on the URL stage. No stranger to King of the Dot, Real Deal also participated in the 2011 2 vs. 2 Grand Prix with teammate Fresco in which they put on a classic performance in each round. Known for his vicious, attacking style, Real Deal always lays into his opponent with personals and hard hitting punchlines. Back in KOTD for the Vengeance 2 event, Real Deal steps into the ring with UK heavyweight Tony D for one of the headlining battles of the event.
After making his rounds overseas, Philly’s favorite white boy is back in King of the Dot. Battling in Don’t Flop with an impressive showing against crowd favorite Blizzard, Rone came away with the W and added yet another body to his ever growing war path. With recent victories over Okwerdz and Protege and a hotly contested battle against Nils M/ Skils, Rone has more than proven himself a threat and is now content to take high profile matches against fellow top tier opponents. Known largely for his quick wit and effortless flow, hard hitting punchlines and screw-face inducing bars have recently begun to work their way into his repertoire. Seen most frequently as of late in King of the Dot, Rone was invited to take part in the always classic Vengeance 2 event against arguably his toughest opponent yet in Fresco.
Without a doubt one of the most popular battlers to ever step into the ring, Fresco does not at first glance appear to be a typical battle rapper. Certainly one of the most successful battlers of the written era, many people were caught off guard by the Rockford, IL emcee. Having no involvement with the scene prior to 2008, Fresco was not on many people’s radars. Coming out of the gates hot, Fresco took down Moodswangz to begin his career. Since then, his resume has grown to include names such as Kid Twist, Soul Khan and Real Deal, among other classic showings against a variety of opponents. With a unique personality and an even more unique flow, Fresco’s originality is one of his biggest assets, always approaching opponents from unexpected angles and with devastating schemes. Making his first 1 vs. 1 appearance in King of the Dot, Fresco brought his A game against Rone, making this one of the best battles of the night.
As the self described “father of the entire scene”, batt le rap legend The Saurus is not too far off base with that claim. One of the few who maintain a battle career that has spanned nearly a decade, Saurus is described as a legend for good reason. Based in the West Coast, The Saurus was originally noteworthy for his freestyle abilities, years ahead of his time in that regard. After winning Scribble Jam twice based off of his skill in this area, the Monterey, CA resident went on to partner with Portland battler Illmaculate for the Jumpoff World Rap Championship competition. Winning it back to back years, The Saurus, along with teammate Illmac, solidified his position in battle rap history as arguably the best freestyler in the world. Transitioning to the written era, his reputation earned him battles with some of the best in the world, and he has shown as much skill in this era as the previous. Extremely in demand, he has traveled all over the world to battle top competition such as Pat Stay, Matter, Cortez, and Cruger, to name only a few. A fan favorite in King of the Dot, The Saurus has appeared in the Canadian league many times, and is now back to take on one of his toughest opponents yet in DNA, at Vengeance 2.
DNA is proof that age does not necessarily reflect skill level. One of the youngest battlers in the game today, the New York City battle rapper has already reached a level that many battlers spend their whole career attempting to reach. Getting his start in the East Coast division of Grind Time, DNA started out battling tough opponents such as Rone and Loe Pesci. Having experienced tremendous growth over the years, the rising star has seen an increase in both his fanbase and his demand; with leagues all over the world requesting him for battles. Having recently returned from Don’t Flop and with plans to travel to Australia to battle, DNA has marketed himself brilliantly and is now one of the most in demand battlers in the world. Most frequently seen on the URL stage, DNA is certainly the youngest battler to headline on a URL card. Apart from his URL battles, DNA is also a regular in King of the Dot, with classic performances against Dizaster and Eurgh. Mixing hard hitting bars with a venomous delivery, DNA is also one of the best freestylers battling today. Taking on The Saurus in what is one of the most requested matches of all time, DNA is returning to KOTD for the third time to feature in this main event battle from Vengeance 2.
