Worcester, MA – Mickey Factz is stepping back into the realm of battle rap. The Achievement: Circa ‘82 MC is set to finally face off against Daylyt after a years-long leadup. The battle, which will be his first official showing since 2013, is part of King Of The Dot’s “MASSacre 3” event, which takes place on July 22 at The Worcester Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts.

“I said why not … lets jump back in the ring,” Factz posted on Wednesday (June 7). “Mickey Vs Daylyt on Mass 3 for @kingofthedot.”

A potential matchup between Factz and Daylyt was discussed back in 2014 but never panned out. Over the years, the two have held a mutual respect for each other, and praised each other’s lyricism.

DX reached out to Factz for his thoughts on the matchup. He told us: “Mickey Factz vs. Daylyt is for the fans of lyricism. Uncut. Unfiltered. Raw. I expect Daylyt to bring his A+ game because I am prepared to show him, his fanbase and the folks at KOTD the difference.”

Day, who recently released his Let There B Lyt album with TDE collaborator Willie B, was quick to promote the battle on Twitter.

He also slyly referenced his goal to battle Eminem while showing off his history of taking on well-known MCs like Ab-Soul and Madchild.

“MASSacre 3” also features Pat Stay vs. Bigg K and Iron Solomon vs. Arsonal. More announcements will be made in the near future. Tickets are on sale now at the official KOTD website.
