In addition to the battle there will be live performances by J. Cole and Mobb Deep's Prodigy.  The whole thing is set to be hosted by HOT 97's Peter Rosenberg and Felli Fell and Yesi Ortiz of Power 106. 

The two contestants who will go head to head were chosen after weeks of voting by station listeners and Who's Next Community users in their respective listening areas. Representing HOT 97 and the whole tristate area is Albany’s B. Martin.  He has opened for artists like J. Cole, Fabolous, and Bobby V.
