Eminem Launching Rap Battle League
Eminem, who got his big break battling in Detroit, told Rolling Stone Monday (April 28) that he's always wanted to start his own league and hopes that his involvement in this will raise the profile of battle rapping.
"I came up battling at the same time I was making records and learning my way around the studio," he told the mag. "It's a little bit different in terms of the kinds of tools you need, but the competitiveness is the same. The times I didn't win gave me just as much light in the past as when I did. It's all about your performance."
The first battle will take place on July 12 at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom and will feature Eminem's Shady Records signee Joe Budden facing off against Hollow Da Don, as well as a rematch between Harlem's Murda Mook and Loaded Lux. more on this story
