Shane Mac vs. Revelation

February 15th, 2015

This March 21st, 5IVE-FOLD ENT. Will be hosting its third event, 5IVE-FOLD BATTLEGROUNDS: BABYLON, at The Fox theatre in downtown Barrie Ontario.  Despite the fact that this is the third event there will be a first time occurrence for the league aside from the usual battles:  The first title match to crown a league champion. The match is three, two-minute high intensity rounds and will be one of the last battles of the night.  Two battlers will face off and one will be crowned not only the winner, but league champion as well.  The two contenders, Shane Mac and Revelation, have the honour of competing to be the first-ever 5IVE-FOLD champion.

With his hometown being Barrie, Ontario, Revelation does not have to travel far for the upcoming title match.  With an adequate record of five wins and one loss, a loss he says only happened because he was underprepared for the time limit.  Being relatively new to a capella battling (only two of his prior battles are a capella) Revelation is not swayed by Shane’s larger record.  When inquired about his thoughts going into the upcoming title match, he responded with this, “All I am going to say is I’m coming in as the underdog, and I am not leaving the underdog,” he said, “I don’t really have a battle rap history like these other guys do but I’ve been doing hip-hop for 11 years… I went to school for music management.  I know my shit,” he said. 

Coming out of Windsor, Ontario, Shane Mac is a battler/emcee boasting an impressive overall record of 15 wins and 3 losses, and a local record with 5IVE-FOLD of one loss as well as one non-judged promotional battle.  When asked about his record and upcoming title match he had this to say, “I’ve lost three battles, they are all debateable,” he said in a serious tone, “I am the champ of 5IVE-FOLD, you can say it now or after… he thinks people are sleeping on him, well Imma’ wake up at that battle and go in,” he said laughing.

With both battler’s primed and ready to go, it is obvious that the 5IVE-FOLD fan-base has a firecracker of a battle to look forward to among others that will be happening at the BABYLON event.  Other big name battlers in the Ontario hip-hop scene such as Windsor’s Jay Cyphe, Sudbury’s Nefarious, London’s Sirreal and York region’s A major will be there as well as performances by local hip-hop artists such as Urban Havoc and Workshop Regime.  The Fox theatre is located at 50 Dunlop St. West in downtown Barrie so if you love Battle Rap and Hip-Hop be sure to get down there for 3:00 P.m. on Saturday March 21st.   There is a $10.00 cover charge at the door and there will be door prizes and giveaways, come through and keep hip-hop in the north alive by representing the 705IVE!!
