There’s no wonder that Drake is a fan of battle rap!
And the alliance is back for more bar-for-bar heat in 2021, after putting together Ultimate Rap League (URL) and Caffeine in 2020.
Drake revealed on Thursday (Feb. 11) that a huge lineup is on the way for season 2 of URL, featuring up and coming battle rappers and some of the biggest MCs to date. In two events hosted by Caffeine, the Laugh Now Weep Later artist is also slated to star and will have some of his favorite artists to perform.
A broadcasting company, Caffeine focuses on the production and delivery of live, interactive entertainment, gaming, and sports content.
The viewership of the channel was 8.7 million for URL last year, and users viewed and voted to help some of their favorite MCs, making it one of the world’s biggest entertainment streams, a press release received by BET says.
“Before Caffeine, I remember how hard it was to stream battles, so it’s amazing to have made it easy enough for millions to watch and the fan base keeps growing,” Drake said.
Next battle of the sexes, Kings vs. Queens II, will debut at 8 ET on Saturday (Feb. 13).
2v2 Fight Double Effect 3 and Queen of the Ring provide new highlights for Season 2 of URL. Weekly shows include: Friday Faceoff, Saturday Main Feature, Sunday Reloaded, Monday Recaps, and Wednesday Primetime.
