Cassidy vs. Dizaster Battle Rap Weigh-In Heats Up Rivalry

Kicking Off the Run Up to Battle Rap TV's First Pay Per View Event on Greek Billionaire Alki David's FilmOn Networks, the Hip Hop Stars Tore Into Each Other and Pledged All Out War at the Dec. 6 Event

BEVERLY HILLS, CA--(Marketwired - September 08, 2014) - The FilmOn Networks and Battle Rap TV press conference for the highly anticipated battle between Cassidy and Dizaster was packed with media and fans Thursday in Beverly Hills. Hosted by Lush One, with the live voice of FilmOn CEO Alki David beamed in from Greece, the conference outlined the details of the Dec. 6 battle -- including the announcement that it will take place at Santa Monica Airport in Hanger 8 -- and served as a 'Lyrical Weigh-In' to test the rappers' preparedness. 

One of hip hop's most revered genres, Battle Rap, has seen a resurgence in recent years with the creation of Battle Rap TV on FilmOn Networks being the most vital sign of its having achieved a new level. Cassidy is famous as a pioneer of the genre who walked away more than ten years ago. Dizaster is one of the rising stars to come out of the Fresh Coast Media Group run by Lush One. 

Cassidy's appearance demonstrated the possibilities of another arm of Alki David's businesses -- he was in the Bahamas during the conference but was able to participate as a hologram. 

"I'm very pleased with the enthusiasm of the fans that turned out today," said David. "This is going to be a battle for the ages -- and will introduce our new ETV platform for one of a kind event television."

The trash talk got brutal, with the crowd enjoying every insult and take down. 

"We learned tonight there is far more genuine animosity between Diz & Cas then we could have ever fathomed," Lush said. "This is going to be heated. Alki David is also opening a huge world of possibilities based on the hologram technology."

The conference was streamed live on and the Dec. 6 pay per view battle went on sale today at
