URL has its first major event this year, after a jam-packed 2018, will be the highly anticipated “SMACK Volume 4” card this Saturday, February 9th. The card will consist of six 3-round battles, and only be available on pay per view from www.watchbattlelive.com.
This exclusive small room setting (along with the BANNED series) has proven to be a fan favorite since its welcomed inception in December 2017. A string of now-classics battles from this series including JC vs. Nu Jerzey Twork, Iron Solomon vs. Rum Nitty, K-Shine vs. Danny Myers, Aye Verb vs. Nu Jerzey Twork and the recent DNA vs. Mickey Factz grudge match has all been birthed out of this series and we know that this card will add to our list.
What makes the Volume cards so fire, is their ability to strip away the gas that is often found in so many big stage battles. With the series predictable top tier matchups and undeniable lyricism, to be invited to perform on a Volume card is a high honor for battlers. Despite which era you have come from, landing a spot on URL’s latest franchise with a formidable opponent opens the doors for fans to see just how dope and explosive an emcee you really are. Nu Jerzey Twork is a great example of this. This upcoming set will be his fourth performance on a Volume. And while many zone in on the attributes of his superior performance, these smaller rooms and close ranged battles afford the fans the opportunity to dissect his lyrical gift.
He is not the only one with lyrical gifts that promise to blow us away.
This particular card will showcase several URL superstars and best wordsmiths. Rappers like T-Top, John John, Shotgun Suge, Rum Nitty, Charlie Clips and sure the sometimes retired, always hustling Arsonal Da Rebel (who has definitely showed up against Twork at SM8), are sure to not only talk that talk but entertain.
Arsonal, who has his own league and who has been creeping into TV, is battling Champion‘s COTY, Geechi Gotti. Champion is the premiere battle analysis show in the culture (second to none). Gotti has been putting up numbers and taking wins. Though he did not take T-Top last year at the Strike 2.5 event, nor come in #1 on our Best of The Culture: Top 20 Battle Rappers And Top Events of 2018, he has proven to be someone Arsonal simply can’t sleep on.
The SMACK Volumes are really some of the best shows in battle rap.

John John Da Don vs. O-Red
