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.

Today’s edition of What’s New In Battle Rap features two highly talked about battles from King of the Dot’s Massacre event. We’ve also got two Big J battles (good for him) and a N.O.M.E. 5 battle that many are calling the bodybag of the year. There are some big updates from World Domination 5 as well, including what many consider a well deserved title shot. If all that’s not enough, Snoop Dogg is back in the battle scene with a series called “Take Flight On Sight”.
