T Rex was clearly the top performer last season from the moment he arrived in the house to the actual Total Slaughter event. He was noticeably feared by the other rappers who had to face him, and gave them all good reasons for it. It stands to reason that you’d want to bring the champion back for the second season.
Like him or not, Dizaster is one of the best when it comes to battling. He’s also among the top freestylers in the game. Improvisation is pretty much a constant when it comes to a Dizaster battle. You know you’re gonna see some bars off the top of his head. That’s ideal for a show that gives the competitors less preparation time than they’re used to. The show was full of chokes, but not from him. Even when Dizaster does forget his bars, he raps through it. That’s what the show needs.
DNA is on this list for pretty much the same reasons Dizaster is. He’s not only a phenomenal battler, he’s also a renowned freestyle artist and choking is not in his nature. In case you didn’t see his battle with Dizaster, they battled for an hour and it was a classic. A rematch between them, on the show or preferably at the next PPV event, would be dope. And don’t think his part on this list is an extension of Diz’s. It’s an easy pairing, but he’s an incredible battler in his own right.
Charron doesn’t fit the description of most of the battlers on this list. He doesn’t fit the usual description of battle rap in general, actually. That being said, his skill is undeniable. He’s also a master of rebuttals and thinking on his feet. In case you haven’t noticed the pattern here, the battlers on this list won’t leave us watching chokes throughout episodes. Also, Charron just battled B Magic and during the battle he said he beat Arsonal. Arsonal didn't even deny it. He just smiled and gave him props on the line. If this skinny white kid can get respect from the U Dubb crowd, you know he’s gotta have bars. Also, he beat B Magic. Yeah. That happened.
Caustic is one of the most disrespectful guys in battle rap. In case that’s not enough of a reason to get him on the show, he’s mastered the craft of disrespect so well that he turned Aye Verb into Papa Doc when they battled in LA. Verb said he was sick, but keep in mind Fresco threw up on stage and still finished his battle with Yung Ill at Blackout 4. For the past year, Caustic has been going through a list of URL opponents including JC, John John Da Don, Cortez, and Aye Verb. Let’s see what would happen if you put him in a house with T Rex.
Illmac doesn’t battle enough for people to always remember how dangerous he is. Maybe after everyone sees what he did to Aye Verb (who actually made it on the first season of the show) they’ll stop forgetting. While we’re on the subject, no Verb is not on this list. He’s been spending a lot of time getting murdered lately and his chokes on the show and against Caustic were hard to watch. Anyway, many people consider Illmaculate to be a nerd rapper, but after his line “I’ll be the nerd that ends up shootin’ the school up, tooled up, itchin’ to clap everything from principal Smack to Arsonal’s school bus”, it’s probably about time to show respect. Also, you guessed it, he can freestyle.
According to Charlie Clips, he was approached to be on the last season of "Road to Total Slaughter". He didn’t go into the reason he declined, but maybe if that reason is no longer valid we can see him in the house for round two. He’s one of the most respected names in battling right now and he’d be an automatic favorite in this tournament for most. Also it’d be nice to see him matched up against DNA.
This pick may be kind of a wild card to some, but Bigg K is steadily rising through the ranks these days. He was in one of the best battles of last year against Illmaculate, and has been putting on consistently good performances since then. Call it speculation if you want, but we could easily see him being one of the bigger names in battling by the time season two rolls around. Bigg K has even said he watched the show every week and would love to be on it. He also said he’s never choked in a battle that was just one 90 second round. Let’s see him prove himself.
Here's our list of battle rappers that should be on Road To Total Slaughter next season.
The reality TV show "Road To Total Slaughter" brought battle rap into a spotlight it hasn’t seen for quite some time (if ever). In addition to being a showcase for battling in general, it shined a light on eight battlers in particular (nine if you still want to count Cortez), giving each one a chance to be seen on a much larger stage. The Total Slaughter event itself was heavily criticized, as deserved, but we’re just gonna talk about the show on here. Naturally everyone who watches the show will have their own opinions of who should be on the next season, but we've created a list of eight battle rappers we think should be tapped for season 2 of "Road To Total Slaughter."
