URL's "Born Legacy 2" is widely considered one of the best events so far this year. The small-room atmosphere provided a unique energy and helped the battles turn out well. The New York league will be looking to continue that momentum with the third installment of Born Legacy, which they dropped the trailer for Friday (July 29).
The card has a solid mix of rookies, big names, and those with some experience looking to take the next step in their careers.
The event takes place in Brooklyn on August 27. The full card for Day 1 is:
- Ave vs. B Magic
- Rum Nitty vs. Ill Will
- Mr. Wavy vs. Yung Ill
- Th3 Saga vs. Chess
- Tink Tha Demon vs. Swave Sevah
- Nunn Nunn vs. Prez Mafia
- Bedaffi Green vs. Glueazy
[UPDATE: August 12, 2016] URL have released the trailer for Day 2 on August 28 announcing all of the matchups for that day. In addition to the battlers we knew were participating, they also announced Tech 9 vs. Jerry Wess.
The full card for Day 2 is:
- Tech 9 vs. Jerry Wess
- Mike P vs. Daylyt
- Prep vs. Lotta Zay
- Saint Mic vs. Tone Montana
- Dre Dennis vs. Jai 400 Block
- Gutta vs. Reepah Rell
- Mo Mula vs. Young X
- Nu Jurzy Twork vs. Dougy
One of the most exciting battles on the card is the main event between Ave and B Magic. Ave is coming off one of the best battles of the year — a classic at the last Born Legacy event vs. Rum Nitty. Magic as well is coming off a highly regarded clash with Iron Solomon at KOTD's "Massacre 2." For fans who like elite punchline writing, this battle has massive potential.
"Born Legacy 3" will be Daylyt's third attempt at a URL debut. At "Summer Madness 3," he was supposed to face off against Swave Sevah, but after the Math/Serius incident, the battle was canceled. After that he was supposed to battle at the West Coast "Traffic" event against Big T, but that too was canceled. (Daylyt has actually appeared on the URL channel in a Triple Threat match against Ah Di Boom and Chef Trez,, but that was originally a Quiet Room battle.) Though his match-up wasn't announced, it's public knowledge that Daylyt and Mike P have long been expected to clash at the event.
This event also features the return of Ill Will to the URL stage, where he hasn't battled since 2014, the continued ascension of Rum Nitty, and several match-ups that could influence the next generation of top-tier URL battlers.
The flyer for both days is below:
Day 1 goes down Saturday, August 27 at Black Bear at 70 N 6th St in Brooklyn, N.Y. Doors open at 1 p.m. sharp. Day 2 is on Sunday, August 28 at the same venue, and doors also open at 1 P.M. You can get tickets for both days here.
