Battle rap is quickly growing as a culture. What was almost completely relegated to street corners and Youtube a few years ago has garnered national recognition, more tv programming, Pay-Per-View events, and other attention of the mainstream media. Hip Hop icons like Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Drake have put on events for the battle scene and at this rate things can only continue to expand. That being the case, we’re here to keep you updated on all things battle rap. Now is a great time to join the culture.

Welcome back, battle fans. Today’s edition of What’s New In Battle Rap includes a few 2 on 2 battles, two of which feature DNA and K-Shine. One of which was ruined by K-Shine getting out of hand. Big surprise, right? We’ve also got two highly anticipated battles from King of the Dot’s Blackout 6.
