King of the Dot announces new twist for Blackout 4 event Jan. 24-25 [News]
Toronto, ON – By all accounts, Blackout 4 is the best lineup of battles King of the Dot has ever put together.
We’re not exaggerating when we say the two-day battle rap event, whose previous incarnations have drawn such hip-hop luminaries as Drake, Maestro Fresh Wes and Wu-Tang Clan’s Raekwon as crowd members, has potential to be the best of all time. The card features more than 30 MCs at the top of their game, including a title match between two of KOTD’s most popular heavyweights: Pat Stay and Dizaster.
But there’s a catch. Ahead of the event, KOTD is only announcing the battlers and not the match-ups. Other than the main events, the crowd won’t know which MCs are facing off against each other until they take the stage. The unprecedented move has changed the pre-event speculation from “which battler will win?” to “which battlers will face off?” It’s a gambit, but one that intends to infuse some innovation in a culture that has become largely homogenized.
Find out who will face off live on January 24-25 or tune into the Pay-Per-View at KOTDTV.com. Members of the media are also invited to a press conference on Thurs., Jan. 23 at 7:00 p.m. at Aria Nighclub, 108 Peter St. (at Adelaide) in Toronto.
