A new CHAMP is born! MYKEY aka real name ‘Michael Jannecke’ was crowned the #DontChokeRapChallenge winner of 2017 this past Saturday at Mercury Live in Cape Town in the annual Don’t Choke Rap Battle competition.
CAPE TOWN: MYKEY – OWN THE BLOCK #DontChokeRapChallenge winner 2017
The night started off chilled with some hip hop classics by The Muffin Man and DJ SIRCULA to set the mood, but soon the tension was filled in the crowded place.
It was no easy road to the Finals as MYKEY had to overcome the odds of competing against 16 of Cape Town’s TOP rappers to #OWNTHEBLOCK and be crowned this year’s Champion! The Final between KULTURE & MYKEY proved to be the highlight of the night as both rappers came with hard punch lines that kept the crowd shouting for more and their delivery was almost immaculate which made for 1 of the best battles to date on the Own The Block platform. The crowd sure had a tough time deciding the winner as they sounded more confused than even YoungstaCPT & Tyler The Instigator as the rap battle was forced to be settled in a sudden death round.
Also KNO THREE – 3 was announced as the 1st OFFICIAL battle rapper to join the Own The Block rap battle league and more announcements will follow soon.
If you missed this one, you can catch a glimpse of the LIVE performance by the Y-General aka @YoungstaCPT below and make sure NOT to miss out on the next!
STAY tuned as details to the next Own The Block event taking place next month in August drops real soon!
