Mad Child to Compete at KOTD World Rap Battle
Swollen Members’ Madchild has announced that he will be competing at this year’s KOTD World Domination Rap Battle on August 5th, 2011 at XS Nightclub in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Madchild will be competing in the main event against well known battle rapper Dirtbag Dan who has competed around the globe in battle rap competitions and performed at this year's Paid Dues Festival. Madchild will unleash his new solo album “Dope Sick” on August 2nd, 2011 on Suburban Noize/Battle Axe Records.
“For the last eight months, my main focus has been to become the best emcee I can be. Battling truly exemplifies the spirit of hip-hop just like beatboxing, DJing or graffiti art. I can’t think of a better way to challenge myself than to step into today's battle arena and compete against some of the best talent from all over the world at this year’s World Domination event,” commented Madchild. “The last time I competed in a battle was when I was inducted into the Rock Steady Crew and in order to embrace that side of myself, I felt it was important to really immerse myself in the culture of hip-hop. When I agreed to participate in World Domination Rap Battle, they told me they could make my match just a promotional battle, but I told them I wanted this to be a judged competition like any other real battle.”
The KOTD World Domination Rap Battle is one of the largest battle rap competitions in the world. The event will feature battle rappers from all over the globe including the UK, Australia, Philippines, Ireland and the United States of America.
