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 and Snoop Dogg 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.

Merry Christmas, battle fans! Hope you all are having happy holidays. Let’s grab some egg nog, light that fireplace, and watch some videos of guys screaming obscenities at each other. On this edition of What’s New In Battle Rap, we even see someone get lyrically jumped (their words, not mine). He doesn’t take it too well. In addition to that, there are quite a few quality battles to choose from. Happy holidays, everyone.
