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. It’s always a great time to join the culture.

Hope you all had a good new year, battle fans. What better way to start off 2017 than with nearly a dozen new battles? If you saw the last edition, you know URL had a surprise for Christmas. Well we’ve got that for ya. KOTD had one as well, so it’s been a big couple of weeks. So sit back and enjoy these bars as always.
