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.

Hello there, battle fans! This week’s round of battle updates includes two huge releases from King of the Dot’s Massacre 2 event. We got Bigg K vs Head I.C.E. and Iron Solomon vs B Magic, both of which had a lot of hype for good reason. We've also got a huge new battle announcement from URL. While these leagues thrived, Don't Flop struggled with Youtube over copyright claims. That all got settled quickly, though.
