Christian battle sensation A. Ward makes his SLAP Battles debut vs. 3PFD in “Holding On vs. Giving Up” AKA the battle to persevere

Lavatory RecordsPITTSBURGH, PA… August 27, 2016… Over the last year, A. Ward has made a lot of noise as one of a few Christian Hip-Hop artists to enter the world of secular battle rap.  He has had some of the best performances of the year, including a battle vs. Saint Mic that has been labeled as a battle of the year contender by many top sites in the battle rap world. Off the strength of these performances he earned an invitation to King of the Dot’s (one of the world’s biggest battle rap leagues) biggest card of the year, World Domination 6.

Before that trip, he joined us in Pittsburgh to battle SLAP Battles (Showing Love Applying Pressure) Co-President 3PFD in “Holding On vs. Giving Up” aka “The Battle to Persevere”.  This concept battle took on hard hitting topics of mental illness, depression, suicide, racial tension, and more, all in an attempt to create dialogue and provide hope and Godly solutions to the listeners. Each round was neck and neck, and it showed through the art of battle rap how real this struggle is.

The struggle was particularly real for both 3PFD and A. Ward. 3PFD said of the battle, “I wrestle with anxiety and feeling hopeless at times, so “Giving Up” isn’t just a battle rap opponent. It’s something I face in real life. Doing this battle helped me to express my thoughts and worries related to it and to take a new perspective in order to bring hope into it. The underlying theme of this event was “Hope Rises”, and I hope that I was able to deliver hope to whoever views this battle.”

People in the building were excited as well. Fellow SLAP Battler Brasi said, “This was one of the best battles to go down on SLAP. Point Blank, Period. Great performances from both battlers. Solid content. You can feel the emotions they both had behind their rounds. You can watch over and over again and still be just as entertained as the first time. God used them both in an amazing way.” Fellow headliner Zach Is Nobody also said, “Holding On vs Giving Up is probably the best complete battle we’ve had on SLAP. Bars, content, rebuttals, etc. They both had it all! And the content verses were on point too! After the battle people were saying God spoke to them through it. Praise Jesus!”

About SLAP Battles:
The concept for SLAP., which stands for “Showing Love, Applying Pressure,” was the brain child of Everette “Pop” Moore of the JustHis League. As opposed to the traditional rap battle, which pits two opponents against each other in a verbal boxing match to prove who the superior MC is, SLAP requires that MCs adopt a character that represents either a vice or a virtue. Then, in a lyrical clash of punch lines, metaphors, bars, and hard hitting a-capella rap, SLAP. brings the same intense entertainment value of battle rap that fans love. In addition, SLAP presents truth and life lessons through the themes of the battles.

“SLAP Battles is a powerful platform, not only are you getting crazy dope lyrics, but bringing perspectives on topics that otherwise may never be seen. SLAP is giving voice to topics that people think on and may be afraid to speak about. SLAP tackles those issues with creativity and purpose.” – Phresh, President of the JustHis League and Hip-Hop Artist
