On the eve of World Domination 4, KOTD put together a press conference to build hype and for the media to get up-to-speed with what the hell battle rap is all about. The whole thing went smoothly and the on-stage bickering between the battlers made for some massively entertaining moments. KOTD will be releasing the full footage any minute now. Scroll to the bottom for more photos too.
Here are some of the best quotes, or at least the ones I could furiously scrawl down in my notepad.
