Slaughterhouse Launch Battle Rap TV series
The battle rap scene is a growing movement that has produced some skillful MCs like Loaded Lux and Math Hoffa. Now Slaughterhouse has jumped into the fray to launch a battle rap show in conjunction with Shady TV.
The show features eight battle rappers who will live together in the same house for a week as they prepare to battle each other until there’s only one left standing. Slaughterhouse will judge and produce the show.
“The winner of each side will co-headline the main event, [with] two legends in the battle game,” said Royce. “It’s probably the biggest battle you can put on right now, on behalf of Shady Records, Shady TV and Slaughterhouse.”
The eight rappers competing in the show will be Daylyt, Arsonal, Cortez, Dizaster, Math Hoffa, Marv Won, Aye Verb and Big T.
“Battle rap is the talk in every street and every barber shop,” said Budden about the show’s concept. “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.”
“It’s giving these guys a platform that they didn’t have before,” adds Royce. “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.”
The ‘Road to Total Slaughter’ will officially premiere in the spring on WatchLoud.com.
