This 3-Episode Television Special produced for MTV2 rated extraordinarily well with the network’s audience and was shot on sound stages in Las Vegas and Los Angeles.  The series attracted a swell of interest and a cast of influential insiders before running it’s course toward the end of the summer.  Apart from other similar tv rap-battles like Fight Klub (MTV) and Freestyle Fridays (BET), 1 World HIp-Hop Championship exhibited a polished yet gritty aesthetic which was achieved through a hybrid of digital video cameras and capture formats.  Motion graphics designer Ryan Pohanic at Elevate.tv created the title sequence and graphics package; and Chicago writer, performer and activist Kazi The Blak wrote, produced and performed the show’s theme music.
