As part of this event, we introduce quotas for the country. Thus, no more than 3 teams can act from each country (Russia, USA, Brazil, France, Germany, Spain, etc.)!


RAP HOOKAH BATTLE 2022 (ONLINE) is an unusual experimental hookah competition.


Participants from different countries send a video in which they prepare a regular hookah. However, that would be too easy…


Therefore, we decided to complicate the task – while preparing the hookah, each participant will need (without prompts and cheat sheets) to perform some track in the RAP genre.


* Video length can be from 1 to 5 minutes. In the video, you can speak your native language or English.


Thus, we will determine which hookah master is best able to: cook a hookah in a psychologically stressful mode, working well not only with his hands but also with his head.


In an online broadcast, the judges will evaluate the work of the participants, which will be shown on the pages of our social networks (subscribe):

Facebook, Youtube, Vkontakte, Instagram
