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.

On this edition of What’s New In Battle Rap, we’ve got two big event announcements and quite a few new battle releases. One of said battle releases is another Royal Rumble battle with six battlers all going at it in the same ring. We’ve also got some high profile battles from Don’t Flop’s 7th Birthday Weekend to check out. On the announcement side of things, URL and RBE both bring some new cards to the table.
