CAPE TOWN: YoungstaCPT & Tyler The Instigator
The Leaders of the battle rap scene in South Africa are back at it once again this Saturday 1st July for their annual MAIN event The#DontChokeRapChallenge 2017.
Last year we saw OWN THE BLOCK team up with Cape Audio College, Boston City Campus and Soul Candi to deliver not only the biggest rap battle competition in the History of the Mother City, but also provided the opportunity for last year’s DON’T CHOKE Season 1- 2016 winner (RIYO aka real name Riyaadh Sarang) to fulfil his dreams of pursuing a career in music and granted a bursary to study the Music Composition & Production course in Cape Town.
With a steady growing fan-base reaching as far as the United States of America, Own The Block is slowly taking over the world by storm, one BLOCK at a time!
This year they’re taking things to a NEW level with total prizes valued at R10 000. Own The Block is constantly seeking to discover those diamonds in the rough and have since discovered some of the best talent and dopest rappers in Cape Town and therefore have cemented their name as the #1 Street Rap Battle league in the country.
The #DontChokeRapChallenge consists of the TOP 16 rappers in the City of Cape Town! Rappers are eliminated by the crowd after each round which see the TOP 4 rappers left in CPT include Kirwan aka Sir Kir, KULTURE, Genius CPT & MYKEY in the Finals on July 1st competing to #OWNTHEBLOCK for that #1 spot!
