appear on Fight Klub.
The two partners recently returned from a Fight Klub tour, which took them to more than 40 states as well as the United Kingdom. For season two, airing this fall, the show plans to offer a $100,000 grand prize for the best 60-second battle lyric. As the company prepares to carve out a digital presence online, plans are in the works for unsigned talent to submit their lyrics via the Internet, a feature currently available through the company’s partnership with YouTube (www.youtube.com/FKTOUR2007) as well as a pay-per-view section on its Website to view the main battle event through live streaming video. Gonzales who majored in business at Syracuse University remembers playing host to MC battles in high school, the same role he assumes now on the show. “When you’re from the hood,” says the low-key Gonzales, “it’s hard to see above water, [but] my hobby became my reality.”
