Eminem’s New Rap Battle League

Did you know that Eminem just announced plans for a competitive rap battle league - ‘Total Slaughter’? That’s right, he wants to give aspiring rap-masters the chance to duel it out and hone their skills just like he did in his younger days in Detroit. 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.
