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.

We’re now on the other side of Blackout 5, folks. The event was a big one, but it was by no means the only news in battle rap. We’ve got battles from Battle of the Bay 7, including the main event of Arsonal vs Mistah F.A.B. Also, Daylyt has made some interesting claims about some of his future opponents. Our more optimistic readers might believe he’s gonna face off with a certain Detroit legend. We’re not gonna hold our breath, though.
