Cortez vs. Hollohan (KOTD) [Video]


Toronto, ON – Here we go again with another round of battle videos from King Of The Dot. This time Hollohan (fresh out of jail) matches up against Cortez out of Brooklyn, NY. I’m not particularly a big fan of promo battles because I think there should always be a winner or a loser. If rappers are putting themselves in the ring they should be ready to face to consequences to their record that come with that kind of competition. That being said, one cool thing about promo battles is the content of the battles is often remembered and discussed more because there is no decision to argue about. It’s all about the bars. This one is c-hosted by Raekwon. Take a look.

@ThatsBizz is a Senior Contributor for HipHopCanada and a member of the Central Canada team. The nuts and bolts of Jonathon “Bizz” Brown are impressive, but it’s his ability to apply his skills, identify opportunities, adapt to new environments and get the job done that makes him who he is. An engaging combination of education, experience and vision, Brown continues to make his mark on many fronts and plant his flag as a professional on the rise. Entrenched in the urban music scene for more than half a decade, Bizz launched Crack House Radio in 2004. Over the next four years, the online radio show would evolve into a major outlet for Canadian music and hip hop culture in general. Over that time, Bizz interviewed countless artists and professionals including Belly, Bishop, Drake, Classified, Guru, Joell Ortiz, author and gang specialist Michael Chettleburg, Brent (owner of Just Ent) & many others. In 2007, Bizz joined Urbanology Magazine as a staff writer and would go on to contribute dozens of articles over the next three years including a cover story on Classified in 2009. 2007 also saw the launch of Bizz' line of t-shirts reading "Hip Hop Ain't Dead It Lives In The North." Since then, he's toured with Peter Jackson, Busta Rhymes, DJ Dames Nellas, Bishop, Slaughterhouse & Pharoahe Monch and secured a strong following with his column on called "The Fine Print."
