Yartzi Red Bull Batalla’s 2x Champion is Set to Defend His Crown & Release an EP

by Natasha Melina

Puerto Rican rapper Yartzi “El Cacique” has been in the rap game for years and has paved his own way to success through some of the most popular Spanish rap battles. Over the years, he has won titles including international champion of “7 to Punch” in Mexico, 2nd place in the world at the Double AA in Argentina, and recently participated as the 1st Puerto Rican MC in the Freestyle Master Series. 


As the returning 2x champion of Red Bull Batalla, the world’s largest Spanish freestyle rap battle competition and one of the world’s biggest hip-hop events, Yartzi is coming back to defend his crown. This year marks their 15th anniversary and will be celebrated by bringing together the best Hispanic artists to compete one-on-one in front of a panel of judges featuring Snow Tha Product as well as millions of fans. 



Yartzi shares that before any battle he always feels nervous and this time is no different while also humbly reminding us that there’s more at stake for the other competitors. The Puerto Rican trailblazer is excited to take the stage once again and announces that after this competition he will be taking a step back to focus on his music and other battles.


In the upcoming year, we can expect an EP from Yartzi with collaborations including one alongside Randy (Jowell y Randy.) Bringing reggaeton as well as rap into the mix, the project will be one of a kind with his unique flow and sound.



Tune in to Red Bull TV for the U.S. Red Bull Batalla Championship, LIVE from Los Angeles on September 18th. During the competition, 16 competitors will become 1, as the 2021 U.S. Red Bull Batalla Champion is crowned!
