Hip Hop Group Slaughterhouse has confirmed that they will be putting out a reality show based on battle rapping. “Road To Total Slaughter” will feature battle rappers Dizaster, Daylyt, Math Hoffa, and Arsonal, among others. The show will be featured on Eminem‘s VEVO channel.
Joe Budden recently weighed in on the culture of battle rapping.
“Battle Rap is the talk in every street and every barber shop,” Joe Budden says in an interview with MTV. “People are really engulfed and seem to be in tune with what these young brothers have to say in the lyrics they’re putting out there.”
Royce Da 5’9 also commented on the show and the importance of battle rapping.
“It’s giving these guys a platform that they didn’t have before,” Royce told Sway. “Everybody knows they’re great if you follow them, so the goal is to put not only them, but Battle Rap itself, on this platform.”
