Last month, Drake co-hosted the King Of The Dot “Blackout 3″ battle which included battle rappers Dizaster and Arcane. It’s no secret by now that Drake is a big supporter of KOTD and the battle rap scene. In addition, he happens to be not only a supporter, but friend to battle rapper Dizaster.
In a recent interview with Hip Hop DX, Dizaster tells what went down the night of the KOTD “Blackout 3″ battle and speaks on his friendship with Drake. According to Dizaster, Drake picked him up from his crib and then on the way to the venue Dizaster prepped him on the direction he was going to take in the battle. He also says that since the 1st battle that Drake co-hosted, they have become good friends and have a “mutual respect” for each other. If you haven’t had the chance, catch the full battle video here.

“We actually showed up together,” he said. “[Drake] came and swooped me up from my spot. Then we hit the venue together and then a lot of shit happened at the venue so we went separate ways and I didn’t get to talk to him. But I’m pretty sure he didn’t care much about the outcome. It didn’t really phase him. He knew what I was going to do. On the way there, I showed him and his boys all the Facebook messages and the PayPal statements. Everyone was super excited. It was supposed to go a certain way and it went the complete opposite. It’s pretty shocking for everybody. I’m pretty sure he was uncomfortable during the battle, which sucks.”
“Drake is really supportive of what we do,” Dizaster continued. “He’s very in tune with real lyricism, on the contrary to what is projected and what people may think of him as a mainstream dude. He really has his roots stuck to that and he really cares about where lyrics come from. I’d say me and him are super close friends. He’s a good dude…There’s definitely a mutual respect level between us.”
