Eminem’s New Rap Battle League

Did you know that Eminem recently announced his plans to launch a competitive rap battle league, ‘Total Slaughter’? According to NME:

The intention of Total Slaughter is to raise the profile of battle rapping, which helped Eminem get his break at the start of his career when he was living in Detroit. The first event will take place on July 12 at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom and will be streamed on hip-hop website WatchLOUD, in conjunction with Eminem’s film company Shady Films.
