Battle rapper Bill Collector has been released from jail according to a series of social media posts. The Norristown, Pa. emcee with the unorthodox style also took to Facebook to announce plans to battle Daylyt at Summer Madness 4.
Bill Collector also took to Twitter to announce his return.
Bill Collector’s most recent battle was in April 2013, when he squared off against Shotgun Suge in a tense grudge match in the SMACK/URL league. One of Bill Collector’s most notable lines in the battle was a reference to his infamous altercation with Hitman Holla’s crew in 2012: “I got knocked out and woke up more famous than you,” he rapped.
Previously in his career, he faced notable opponents such as John John Da Don, Tech 9 and Qleen Paper and has appeared on URL, UW and several other leagues.
Calicoe name-dropped Bill Collector and his most repeated line in a now infamous battle against Loaded Lux. “I mean Shotgun say he a gangbanger but he not one,” Calicoe rapped, “Bill Collector say he got the burner but he ain’t got one / That was just a situation from a nigga to learn a lot from.”
