About Us

Walk towards the Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto and you might pass by a tiny park, hidden in an alley just off Yonge Street. It doesn’t look like much. It’s partially fenced up, not maintained in the slightest, and almost always empty. You’d probably never guess that this park, hidden among the concrete playground that is the core of Toronto, was the birthplace of one of the biggest and most exciting underground hip hop movements in the entire world.

King of the Dot, North America’s premier hip hop battling league, emerged onto the scene in August of 2008 with a small following and big dreams, dreams that one day it would be the battle rap community for Toronto.... Just Toronto."I never thought we’d ever have fans outside of Toronto, let alone Canada, That’s why I named it King Of The Dot." says Organik, Founder of KOTD. The amount of growth the league has seen since its inception is something not even its biggest supporters could have predicted. Over 650,000 viewers subscribe to the KOTD YouTube channel, watching the league’s 1000+ battles to the tune of over 190 million total views. hop legends such as Drake, Sean Price, Alchemist, Classified, Choclair, Canibus, Jeru Tha Damaja, Maestro, and more have all expressed their admiration of the company and even  worn KOTD clothes.
