Monday 11th March was the 4th event of the season with the launch of Youngers TV series on E4.
And with Youngers being launched we saw the young Perplex Crew eliminate Dope Boyz in the Crew Dance battle, Jay Picasso was also stripped of his title by last years finalist King Kev, but on 3 Blow Out wins Picasso is as good as in the play-offs already. Akua moved on to 3 wins with a close and controversial win against former The Voice contestant J Marie-Cooper. Dotz is now 1 win away from 5 and being retired to The Finals as he beat Seano Mac.
Charlie Sloth, Manny Norté and Rap6 were firing, the banter was crazy and the highlight of the night.
Dj Semo tore up the After Party with a great 2hr set including a Biggie tribute mashup.

Perplex Crew
5 - 1
Dope Boyz
 
When challengers Perplex Dance Crew stepped out they were greeted by a wave of "aawwwww"s and many thought "they're gonna win coz they're cute". As the battle started Perplex set out like adults, they had attitude and conviction while Dope Boys looked a little shakey. EQHO dropped out on Saturday night, Perplex accepted the challenge on Sunday evening with less then 24hrs to prepare. Dope Boys had some good moments but it wasn't enough, Perplex were tight, wanted it more and were awarded the win, 5-1.

Jay Picasso
 
It was looking like Jay Picasso was going to cruise through to 5 straight wins, that was until last years losing finalist King Kev stepped up. On the 16th anniversary of his death the Producers had a Biggie sample to work with. Manny and Charlie argued over their vote which eventually went to Picasso but all other votes went to King Kev, Judge Harry Love said it best; "King Kev made a Biggie beat, Picasso made a Picasso beat".

Akua
4 - 3
J Marie Cooper
 
 SONG:  Fabolous - "You Be Killing 'Em"
Normally the champ starts as the favourite but with J Marie-Cooper's popular appearance on BBCs The Voice UK most would have expected her to win. Her voice, tone and range were incredible but the champ Akua has found a rythem on the live stage and is running with it. Akua almost sings the same rap flow and it works, the crowd love it and can relate to it. The crowd were asked 3 times for their vote but Rap6 just couldn't separate them so they got a point each. Misha B apprently started to write 'J Ma..' then wiped it. Maybe there's a problem with the format, it's the 2nd show where a judge has said they chose the singer who played an instrument.

Dotz
6 - 0
Seano Mac
 
Only Gizmo has managed to take any votes off of Dotz this year and that streak continues for Dotz as he made light work of Seano Mac. It wasn't the greatest battle as both MCs struggled to connect with the audience. Maybe that's why underground rapper Big Cakes, a lil tipsy, lept over the barriers and tried to battle both MCs grabbing the mic and saying "they're both wack" but was escorted off stage by Scala security. The 'nan' and 'gran' and 'mum' jokes are looking to tire out as some were received by 'boooo's, outside Seano Mac dropped a great nugget "i'm ok with the boo'ing, I agree with the crowd, and if u can stand there and take the cheers, you should take the boo's"
