Kane Mayfield vs Troy Brown battle featured in The City Paper

Al Shipley, from the Baltimore City Paper and the author of the blog Government Names has written a review of last week's battle featuring Mania Music Group's own Kane Mayfield and rapper Troy Brown facilitated by Always Dope at Red Maple.

According to Shipley, Kane "...kept his tone conversational and kept thinking on his feet, deflecting every insult and getting nastier and more absurd with his own attacks, until there was simply no question who the winner was."
