Exclusive Photo Gallery: OVO & KOTD Present Blackout 5 – Day 2 Recap (Shot By Tse Daniel)

Day 2 of the OVO-KOTD Blackout 5 presented itself as something much more entertaining than I heard the Grammys were, but that’s may or may not be relevant to this point. As mentioned on numerous outlets, Drake opted out of attending the award show and joined the regular folk at the biggest rap battle in North America, while OVO Sound held it down in L.A. The matchups were heated – I mean, veins popping out, I cried tears of laughter at the punchlines and the audiences jaws dropped at the title match – as well as the battle between Rone and Dumbfoundead, and were left in awe at Big T’s comeback and Toronto debut. At the end of the night, Charron Pat Stay battled for the title, money, the KOTD chain and all the bragging rights. While Charron gave 150%, Pat Stay kept his title in a 4-1 decision by the judges – which I personally disagree with. It was more like a 3-2, at the very least. Regardless, grab the pictures after the jump and be on the look out for our interview with Serius Jones in the following days.
