NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — On Saturday, October 17, the Ultimate Rap League (URL) and the Queen of the Ring (QOTR), two of the world’s premier battle rap leagues, will present the highly anticipated KINGS vs. QUEENS event exclusively debuting on Caffeine TV.
This battle of the sexes comes by popular demand, proving to the culture that gender does not determine who has the most elite pen in this industry: those identifiers are heart, passion, and pure lyrical dexterity. The card features some of the top stars from each side: 40 B.A.R.R.S. vs. Tsu Surf, E-Hart vs. K-Shine, C3 vs. Rum Nitty, Couture vs. Charlie Clips, O’fficial vs. Arsonal, Vixen vs. DNA, and Casey J vs. Swamp.
CEO and Founder of QOTR, Donald “Debo” Powell, shares, “‘Kings and Queens’ is not just an event, it’s bigger than that. This is a union of two of the best male and female brands of our industry in efforts to evolve the culture.”
“Because URL is the biggest stage in battle rap, we are constantly looking for ways to satisfy our viewers— you see this with our partnership with Caffeine,” Troy “Smack” White of URL adds. “So, working with a reputable brand like QOTR, a league whose fan base often intersects with ours, is a no-brainer.”
KINGS vs. QUEENS airs live on Caffeine TV on Saturday, October 17 at 4 p.m. EST/1 p.m. PST. Battles from Kings vs. Queens will start to stream exclusively on The Ultimate Rap League’s App, alongside all kinds of original content, within weeks of their debut.
