The Ultimate Rap League (URL) has emerged as the premier battle rap league and now fans of the competitive art form will have access to an elimination tournament for the ages. This Saturday (May 23), URL by way of Caffeine will play host to the Ultimate Madness tournament where 16 battle rappers will face off for an opportunity to win a major cash prize and a slot at URL’s NOME X (10) event.

Previously known as Ultimate Freestyle Friday, Ultimate Madness will grant the winner a $25,000 grand prize and shot to battle at URL’s largest event. The event will be judged by Tony Bro, Knowledge The God, Uncle Ra, and Reda, who will help decide the fates of the 16 MCs as they square March Madness bracket-style.

Round one of Ultimate Madness will feature a total of eight battles over the first two weekends of the tournament. For week one, Squeako vs. Your Honor, Gunpowder Patt vs. Ru Bando, Jey the Nitewing vs. Real Sikh, Kid Chaos vs. Lu Castro will all find themselves in opposition starting at 4PM ET, 1PM PT. On Monday (May 25), Jay Black and Smack will host a recap event at 8PM ET, 5PM PT.

“We’re continuing to keep the battle rap culture alive on Caffeine during this quarantine. More and more fans are tuning in every week for our virtual battles and Primetime on Caffeine. And they’re going to love Ultimate Madness,” Smack said in a statement.

With the COVID-19 pandemic rendering face-to-face battles in crowded venues obsolete, URL has moved to host virtual battles and continuing to work heavily with Caffeine to keep the content fresh and moving until things return to the new normal.

A full schedule of events can be found below. Check out the blog post for the Ultimate Madness event here.
