AllHipHop.com recently spoke with both legends about KOTD, the culture, and the growing trend of mainstream emcees trying their hand at battle rapping.
“They would probably have to stop making music and really focus on battle rap to be as good as us. This ain’t something you can just come in and be the best at,” says Hollow about recording artists stepping into the battle ring. “They can do good. But who can do great and be exceptional?”
When asked if he is open to promoting another mainstream rapper vs top-tier battler match up, Organik states, “It depends on the mainstream artist and where they’re at mentally.”
He adds, “I think the battlers have kind of worked hard to make battle rap what it is. I think the money should stay within the battlers rather than paying some artist that’s just going to come in, [we] pay them big bucks, and see them not take it serious.”
