In March of 2013, Drake attended another KOTD event, co-hosting the final two battles at KOTD’s Blackout 3. Later that summer, he tweeted that OVO was an official sponsor of KOTD’s World Domination card. KOTD owner Organik said during a press conference for the event, “The Drake sponsorship was something that Drake had proposed to me one day while we were talking. He is a huge battle rap fan and one of, if not the biggest supporters, KOTD has. The OVO sponsorship helped us make the event the monster it is today.” The VMAs kept him from being able to attend the event, but he released an apology video thanking fans for tuning in.
