MC reactions from King of the Dot’s Blackout 3 [Article]

Tweet

Toronto, ONKing of the Dot put on yet another successful star studded event featuring the likes of Grammy-nominated rapper Drake, Canadian hip-hop legend Maestro Fresh Wes, and rising stars like Gangis Khan aka Camoflauge. And of course, the main focus of the evening, the 18 battle MCs listed on the Blackout 3 flyer. 18 rappers squaring off in front of a live audience of 1,400 and thousands more via online pay-per-view. It was an epic event and King of the Dot should be applauded for their efforts.

For months, battle rap fans had been patiently waiting for the third installment of King of the Dot’s Blackout battle series, scheduled for January 26th. There was a lot of excitement surrounding the match-ups, and previous Blackout events had a huge impact on the scene. The first one saw Flight Distance member Bender win the chain from Hamilton’s Arcane, and Pat Stay go head-to-head with New Jersey battler Arsonal. Blackout 2 saw Raekwon and Classified co-host a title match between poRICH and Sketch Menace, as well as the main event with Hollohan and Cortez.

Blackout 3 was the first King of the Dot event of 2013 and showcased talent from Canada, the United States, and United Kingdom. The main event was Dartmouth powerhouse Pat Stay vs New York’s Math Hoffa, and Dizaster vs Arcane for the title of King of the Dot champ. Not to mention a heavy supporting cast of entertaining battlers on the under-card.

Charron

Watch Charron battle HFK on February 25, 2013

HipHopCanada: What did you think of your battle?

Charron: It was a great time battling HFK because he is my best friend in the scene and we had a lot of dirt on each other. A lot of people have told me that I had the battle of the night, and win or loss I’m happy about that because my goal is to have the fans satisfied. If we can put on a classic battle for the fans my job is done and the judges decision is irrelevant.

HipHopCanada: Can you speak on rumors surrounding you battling in URL (Ultimate Rap League)?

Pat Stay: I’m ready to take anybody on as long as the money and business is right. I’d love to do it if the business and opponent is right.

100 Bulletz

HipHopCanada: What did you think of your battle?

100 Bulletz: The battle was kinda crazy. I brought a lot of material, I thought it was my best material. I don’t know if they could hear the bars. It was a big place. People walking up to me after were saying it was nice, and a couple bars I didn’t get to spit because of time.

HipHopCanada: Who do you plan on battling next?

100 Bulletz: Next I got JC, then I head back to Don’t Flop to battle an undisclosed opponent and I also plan to get back into King of the Dot, I’m trying to stay active.

Shotty Horroh

Watch Shotty Horroh take on Ness Lee on March 11, 2013

HipHopCanada: What is the difference between KOTD and other battle leagues?

Shotty Horroh: The difference between King of the Dot and everywhere else is the community and family sense of it all. It’s just purely about hip-hop and bars. I’ve done Don’t Flop, they got they’re own atmosphere. UW and URL have theirs, but nothing touches King of the Dot. King of the Dot’s number one for me.

HipHopCanada: Who do you plan on battling next?

Shotty Horroh: I’m going to UW to battle Daylyt, Math Hoffa, and then Rosenburg Raw. The best part of the event for me was a random fan gave me a scarf with my home soccer team on it so the fans know what’s up. I also liked the women and kush.
