Simultaneously making his West Coast and King of the Dot debut, John John da Don made the trip from the East for the showdown against Caustic in this headlining battle from KOTDWC’s Resurgence event. One of the rising stars of the past year, the Atlanta based emcee relocated to New York in order to make the transition from Grindtime ATL to the URL stage, one of the few emcee’s ever to do so. Now commanding a high level of competition, John John’s last battle was a mainstage appearance against Hitman Holla in what was one of the best showings from each battler. Having stepped his battling game up, John John da Don is known for his vicious performance, attacking his opponents with aggressively with a nonstop barrage of bars and personal punches. Jumping in the ring with Caustic, which emcee will take down the other and prove themselves victorious?
Proving himself as one of the West Coast’s giants as of late, Caustic may not have been a heavyweight during the early days of the written battle scene, but he is more than a problem now. One of the most dangerous battlers to face off against, the Union City native has a reputation for completely obliterating his opponents. Often utilizing devastating personal information, Caustic crafts his rounds such that the flow and delivery of his material is not sacrificed in order to ruin his opponents in the ring. Beginning to gain some international exposure, Caustic has made moves in both Canada and the UK previously, gaining fans in both countries. With a resume that includes Rone, 24/7, and Jonny Storm, Caustic is a seasoned veteran ready to spar with URL representative John John da Don.

Coming out of upstate New York, Syracuse’s own Real Talk is an emcee who should be on everyone’s radar. Making his first appearance two years ago, the relative newcomer has established himself as a legitimate threat to those who might be foolish enough to underestimate him. Having earned his stripes in the Grind Time era, Real Talk has already been in the ring with the likes of Uno Lavoz, D’Meitz, and fellow Syracuse native Dirt. Known for his ability to combine intricate punchlines with heavy hitting bars, his presence and improving delivery assist in rounding out his battle rhymes. Making his long awaited King of the Dot debut, Real Talk takes on Canadian emcee CL in this release from Flatline 2.
Continuing to make his name known in Canadian battle circles, CL may be a new name to some, but is as vicious as most veterans in the league. Hailing from Montreal, CL began his grind in the battle world recently, accepting his first battle two years ago. Earning himself better and better competition every battle, CL put on his best performance to date at last year’s World Domination 2 event against D’Meitz, showcasing his impressive freestyle skills. Having also faced off against emcees such as 100 Bulletz, Q Shinobi, and Tycoon Tax, CL is putting in his work in order to perfect his craft. Aggression, complex schemes and an energetic performance help make his battles entertaining while simultaneously dismantling his opponents. Accepting a battle with American Real Talk, who will come out on top in this Flatline 2 battle?
Coming off of an impressive showing at World Domination 3, Sonny Bamboo is stepping back into the ring. Showing he can hang with some of the best in his Osa battle, the Atlanta emcee is beginning to battle more often as shown by his involvement with Flatline 2. At one time part of Grindtime, Sonny is known by many as the host of the Midwest division, bringing some of today’s best battlers into the scene. However, the Leprechaun Don is also a very talented battler and artist, having released his most previous album roughly a year ago. Ready to step up his battling game, Sonny Bamboo now takes on the former King of the Dot champion, PoRich, in this next release from Flatline 2.
One of the most familiar faces in King of the Dot today, PoRich is one of the most active battlers in all of Canada. First seen in JumpOff’s WRC competition, the Whitby representative paired with Kid Twist to put Canadian battling on the map in that era. Having now transitioned into the written scene, Po has battled more often than most and has taken on some of the heavy hitters in the game, such as Soul Khan, Dizaster, and Loe Pesci. Coming off of the loss of his reign as KOTD Champion, Rich has not slowed his grind, having taken on both Uno Lavoz and now Sonny Bamboo since World Domination 3
