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.

Last time on “What’s New In Battle Rap” we told y’all that KOTD had a title match. Now we’ve got the battle for you. It’s the first of many highly anticipated World Domination 5 battles to be released. We’ve also got a couple battles from URL’s Redemption event and a crazy 8 man battle that went down in San Jose. In addition to all that, there are a few announcements for upcoming battles that you’ll want to hear about.
