FilmOn and Dizaster present Virus--The Halloween Battle Rap Extravaganza Live in Hollywood and via Pay-Per-View

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 30, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Greek Billionaire Alki David's FilmOn Networks will present an all costumed Battle Rap event, Virus, produced by battle rap star Dizaster live at Antenna in Hollywood. The event, featuring hip hop artists playing roles of Caitlyn Jenner, Klu Klux Klan members, Malcom X, Bruce Lee and others, is on Friday Oct. 30th at 8 pm PDT. The event will stream as a pay-per-view on Sunday Nov. 1st at 8 pm PDT on FilmOn.com's ETV platform here. The pay-per-view is $19.95 with an additional $9.95 for live chat.

Dizaster has gathered an utterly demented line up of top battle rappers to step into the roles of controversial and historical figures and take on current events in their rhymes. Cadalack Ron will play the Klan member facing off against Daylyt as Malcom X. Caitlyn Jenner (played by trans gender rapper No Shame) will face of against Bruce Jenner look-a-alike, Rone). Other match ups include, A-Class as Bruce Lee vs. Bill Collector as Kareem Abdul Jabar, The Deadman as 50 Cent facing off against Marv Won as Rick Ross.

The artists will be paid in an ingenious new method—recievieng YouTube royalties for the videos from the event. Previous Battle Rap costmed events have scored big numbers—the controversial nature of this one is expected to perform even better.

"Even though they're probably gonna say some f---d up s--t to each other, I'm hoping that it can have a positive result in the end, " Dizaster said.

FilmOn and ETV have produced successful Battle Rap events in the past including Ether at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles which brought Cassidy out of retirement to face Dizaster. That event was sold out both at the theater and via pay-per-view.

Alki David's FilmOn Music produced Chief Keef's Bang 3 album which rose to the number two spot on iTunes in August and was a featured album on Spotify. It's path to success via a "leak" and viral marketing earned it kudos from Forbes magazine. Massive streaming tv service FilmOn has 9 channels devoted entirely to hip hop and urban culture. David's Hologram USA is also involved in the creation of holograms of Big Pun, Eazy E and other hip hop stars.
