Each week two unsigned rappers compete in a single round of battle freestyling. Cidida has won five rounds in a row, according to his website.
Cidida will be back on the show later this month, when fans of the show will have a chance to vote for their favorite champions. Ahrens is competing for a grand prize of $5,000 cash and five studio sessions, he told the Frederick News-Post. That opportunity could be just what he needs to get his career into full swing.
Ahrens is currently living in Brooklyn working as an audio engineer, but he grew up in Frederick, Md. even graduating from Frederick High School in 2004.
One of the other contenders is Adversary, another Maryland native from from Glenmont in Montgomery County. The other contestants include Agent Orange from Springfield, Ill., Sam I Am from Chicago, and 2-B-Announced from Springfield, Mass.
