After a successful listening session and screening of over 800 entries from across the country, the talent show will move into second gear at the quarter-final stage.
These eight rappers will clash in a one on one battle to prove their lyrical dexterity and either end their Rapture journey or move on to the next stage of the competition and draw closer to wearing the crown.
The battle which will be live on YFM’s after drive show, “Dryve of Your Lyfe” will see rappers Scream and Kofi Kunta open up the stage on Wednesday, July 14, 2021, and Gaiseboi going head to head against Konfidential on Friday, July 16, 2021.

The participants met with the Programmes Manager of Y107.9FM-Accra, Eddy Blay Jnr who took them through the technicalities of the Rapture reality talent show.
He said: “The only rule you must not break is the clean rule. Make sure your flow is clean, otherwise everything is fair game.”
He wished the contestants the best of luck as he saw them off while urging listeners to keep tuned in to the Y-Triangle for live updates of the competition.
