Wuddup y’all, hope you enjoy the battle. i feel like this shit is entertaining on so many levels lol. And, even though i know this wasn’t my best performance, i am proud that i was able to hold everything together and deliver my material under the circumstances. Bottom line it was the most fucked up environment I’ve had to face in my entire battle career, but I know Organik and staff did everything they could to control the chaos and the video quality and editing looks amazing.
As for the manufactured scandal with Caustic, shit was mad overblown and taken way out of context. People need to recognize there’s a big difference between “buying bars” and breaking off a homie who got screwed out of a tournament finals appearance by border patrol. Me and Caustic used to be friends and we shared a FEW ideas for ONE battle. This happens all the time. I’m not gonna start airing out names, but most of these emcees don’t battle for money so none is ever exchanged. Since dude got stopped at the border, I did what i thought was the right thing at the time and broke off the homie
Ultimately did i need help against Chedda? No. Did i need help against Dizaster? No. Did i ask Caustic for his help? No. Did Caustic ask for any money? No. Is there anything on that paypal statement that says “$$ for bars”? No. it actually says “Merry xmas homie”. And i defy anybody to provide any evidence that would prove otherwise. Plus, If anyone conspired with Caustic for this Title match, it was clearly Dizaster, not me,.. so to go on for three rounds about it was just redundant IMO.
The way this shit has been twisted is ridiculous really. I’ve helped countless emcees over the years, free of charge, and never breathed a word to gain any praise. My biggest mistake was hooking someone up I considered a friend. The sad fact of this battle game is that there’s very little room for true friendships. Shit is mad grimy out here. So the doors to the factory are now locked. Lesson learned. I will never put myself in that position again.
All in all, the battle def didn’t go as smooth as it could have, but to all the fans, battle emcees, and KOTD staff who have reached out to offer their respect, recognition and support, I’m honored. Real recognize real. To all my haters, doubters and detractors, i will def be back to defend my title and the 2nd reign of Cane will be brutal for y’all. Heads are gonna roll..
