As HHKMag followers know, we sponsored Premier Battles for their first season. The Premier Battles AllStar game will see 5 of the best battlers from the season, go against 5 International battlers. Battlers who represented the likes of Knights Battle Club, Shark City, Pride, Glory and Mandrill Mob had the opportunity at the start of the season to impress, with a chance of having an International battle this December. We’ve listed the 5 main events below.
The announcement of Soul vs Illmaculate really set the tone for the rest of the card. Both these battlers are highly regarded worldwide, and Premier Battles have done a great job in setting this match. Soul was part of Shark City for their first season, and went against Matter from the Mandrill Mob and picked up the win on Matchday 001. Illmaculate needs no introduction and his presence will be very welcomed by the UK rap battle fans.
After a rocky start, Cojay has grown throughout the season and was named the battler of the year. His first match was against Knights Battle Club captain Joker Starr, where he picked up a loss. Since then, he’s gone on to win performance of the night, and ultimately battler of the season. He goes against the highly popular Mike P, and the Long Island native will want to impress when he makes his first trip to the UK.
Rivers was one of the figureheads in the Glory Team this season at Premier Battles. On Matchday 002 he took a questionable loss to Unanymous, and then defeated Frankie Fraser and Joker Starr on Matchday 003 and 004 respectively. Big Kannon has a history with HHKMag, being around in the very early days when the Hip-Hop Kings forum reached it’s peak. He’s gone from strength to strength and it will be great meeting him later this year. This is one of the underrated matches on the card in our opinion.
Another huge lineup in the form of Chris Leese vs Caustic. Throughout the entire season, Chris Leese has been incredibly consistent at a very high level. We are huge fans and easily rate him in the top 3 within the UK. This lineup will be interesting to see the return of Caustic, who famously retired Jefferson Price, and had a grudge match with Soul. Caustic will have to turn his attention to Soul’s Shark City team mate Chris Leese. Another incredible announcement and a match we are very looking forward to watching.
Lastly, Knights Battle Club member Dialect goes up against Loso. Dialect battled twice in first season of Premier Battles, and won 2, retaining a 100% record. He beat Chris Leese on Matchday 003 and Arkaic on Matchday 004. Loso has had his fair share of big battles and will be up for the challenge on UK soil. He’s gone against the likes of Daylyt and Jimz among others, and will be eager to pick up points for his International team.
Lastly, we have Major Concerns vs LSDean in the Academy 18 final. Both battlers have had a great year, and ultimately won their battles to reach the final. The stakes are high for the winner who will end up with a team next year on Premier Battles. This could go either way and we’re excited to see who shows up to take the points.
