The Ultimate Rap League has threatened Eazy the Block Captain with legal action, alleging the Philly battle rapper breached his contract when he battled Hitman Holla at Remy Ma’s Chrome 23 event in February.
Eazy began making waves in the battle rap scene after participating in URL’s Ultimate Madness tournament back in the summer of 2020. Since then, he battled numerous top-tier opponents, rising to become one of the brightest stars of the new era.
However, in documents obtained by AllHipHop.com, URL accuses Eazy of breaching his contract to battle Hitman Holla earlier this year. In addition, they also claim Eazy attempted to “poach” their signed or affiliated talent to perform at his The Trenches event last weekend (Jun. 3).

URL claims they gave Eazy “ample time to modify the card” but instead, he “consciously elected to promote the card with only minor adjustments, transparently using his dispute with URL as a marketing ploy to help promote his event.”
They further state their intention to sue Eazy for damages suffered unless he honors his contract and stops his attempts to hire URL talent.
“The choice is simple: Mr. Brown can either honor the remaining terms of the Agreement
with URL, or he can defend against a lawsuit in which URL will seek to recover the damages it
suffered when Mr. Brown breached his exclusivity obligation by battling Hitman Holla at
Chrome23’s February 25, 2023 anniversary event. Similarly, unless Mr. Brown immediately
