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.

It’s been an interesting couple of weeks in the battle rap world. We’re continuing to get some more Blackout 5 and Rookies vs Vets battles. We also saw a certain New Jersey rapper get beaten so badly he literally threw in the towel. In other news, another rapper got literally beaten in LA and it wasn’t in a rap battle.
