BET’s 106 & PARK has once again teamed up with rap icon SMACK and the Ultimate Rap League (URL) for another season of Ultimate Freestyle Friday (UFF) battle competition. As the world’s largest and most respected platform for battle rap, BET Networks and 106 & PARK have adopted the URL battle format bringing the popular online brand to network television. Hosted by Smack and Bow Wow, 106’s latest freestyle battle premieres this Friday, March 28, 2014 at 6 pm establishing Ultimate Freestyle Friday as the home true battle rap and hip-hop for fans across the globe. This season’s celebrity DJ’s and respected emcees Mobb Deep, Kid Capri, The L.O.X., Papoose, Saigon, Superstar Jay, Smif-N-Wessun, DJ Self, Shaheem Reid and Jahlil Beats will judge the 7 week competition.

“I’m really excited about doing a second season of Ultimate Freestyle Friday with 106 & PARK,” said SMACK, founder of Ultimate Freestyle Friday. “Making the transition from DVDs to online and now to network television speaks volumes on the evolution on rap culture. I’ve been documenting hip-hop culture for years and the SMACK / Ultimate Rap League brand is the leading force responsible for bringing MC Battle culture to masses.”

Over the course of the 7-week period, eight emcees will compete for the coveted season two Ultimate Freestyle Friday Champion title. The season culminates with season one champion Ill Will going head-to-head with this season’s winner in the infamous 106 Backroom for the $5,000 grand prize.
