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 from 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’ve got some exciting news this time around. We’ve had title shots in KOTD and Don’t Flop come out in the past couple weeks. There have also been new events announced for both KOTD and Don’t Flop.
