Only 6 months after the biggest battle rap event of all time (UW's High Stakes), Eminem and Slaughterhouse up the ante with an even larger scale event "Total Slaughter" going down this Saturday at the Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC.
Last month Shady Films premiered their new reality show on FuseTv "Road To Total Slaughter" , based on 8 of the biggest names in the sport matched up against each other tournament style, with a chance to land a spot on the undercard of the upcoming "Total Slaughter" PPV event. Revealed earlier this week in the last episode the last 2 battlers standing and set to face each other at the "Total Slaughter" event were the always entertaining and controversial battle rapper from Cali "Daylyt" and the legendary battle rapper from Harlem NY "T-Rex".
One of the co- main events is a rematch of the classic "Smack DVD" battle Loaded Lux vs Murda Mook. Since their legendary battle in 2007 Loaded Lux has gone on to become in most peoples eyes The Greatest Battle Rapper of All time. Mook went on to pursue a rap career with the Ruff Ryders and eventually made his comeback to battle rap in 2012 at URL/Smack's "Summer Madness 2" event against Iron Solomon. Though most feel he was victorious, his performance received more hate than praise. Many Including myself feel this battle wasn't necessary and will be a let down compared to their first encounter. With that being said, we're still interested in seeing how both MCs approach this battle.
The other main event and battle with the most anticipation is Hollow Da Don from Queens NY and the New Jersey Rap Legend Joe Budden. This may very well be the biggest battle of all time. With Hollow being one of the greatest and most popular battle rappers of all time and Joe Budden being one of the best lyricist in the game. We've seen a mainstream artist battle a battle rapper before with Canibus vs Dizaster , but we've never seen a relevant mainstream rapper who hasn't passed his prime battle in the ring before. Many fans even casual feel that Joe is out of his league being that he's never been on this kind of stage before and the fact that he's facing one of the greatest to ever do it. But Joe isn't new to this, even though they weren't recorded he's battle Jersey legends and even known mainstream artist such as DMX. For the first time this Saturday the industry and the battle rap world will face off, don't miss your chance to witness history...
