Check the extended trailer to get to know their material a bit more: caught up with John John moments after his "Summer Madness 5" battle to talk about the upcoming event and to ask why he wanted a rematch with Clips (they first battled in the Quiet Room in December 2013). John John explained, "Because it's like, they say Clips is the G.O.A.T., and even though that's a good, good friend of mine, I really want to be the best at this shit. I'm really on some 'if you want to be the best you have to beat the best' type shit and I spoke to Clips, I'm like 'Please don't make it easy for me 'cause I'm really gon' get in here and try to fuck you up.'"

John John also added "I feel like I've been slept on and underrated for so long and I just try to work man, every time y'all see me on that stage I'm coming to work."

The event is scheduled to go down Sunday, Oct. 18 at Taboo 2, 6075 Roswell Rd North East, Atlanta, Georgia.
