Good point. To be honest, I sometimes enjoy DNA battles, but that is not the majority of the time. In fact, I usually tend to be less than thrilled when I see him on a card.

BTW, I think DNA quitting is a work

do you think KOTD pays as well as URL, though? And does KOTD have enough events? URL rolls out events often and often they have big stages and even their small room volume battles get views.

KOTD just doesnt seem as relevant in all honesty.

Also, I think one of DNA's great strengths is that he has appeal in any platform. But URL, for some reason, seems to be the best platform for these artists.

Good points about more opportunity to make bread on the url. And I'm not saying jumping ship to be kotd's new head ice is a wise move. I'm not saying that it can't be beneficial either. Thing is never underestimate the ego. For example, since DNA isn't regarded as a main eventer on URL, the opportunity to get that status on KOTD might be appealing to him.

And lets not forget that it wasn't but just a few years a go the KOTD was the most organized league.(ppvs, press confrences..) Granted, they have been in a state of decline, but I don't think they are knocked out of the prime time game. Battle rap is a volatile place.

Have you noticed kotd/ rbe collaboration?

If KOTD is going to keep letting battlers have their own PPV links then I would think you could probably get paid as well if not better, its easy to hate on DNA but he's popular

Not sure what kind of % they get out of that though

If he wins the chain they'll put merch on the store and push it hard like they did for Ice, assuming he can come up with a t-shirt that isn't him holding a missing tooth with his mouth open that says "get him the fuck out of here!" he should make decent money off that too

I imagine DNA will go for the KOTD chain at some point..he wanted it in the past. other than that he has plenty of places to go..RBE, U Dubb, Premier, Chalked Out, etc
