Hot on the heels of everyone else doing it first, XXL Magazine is launching its own online rap battle.
Sponsored by Scion, XXLBlocktalk.com is the magazine’s first rhyme-related contest. Contestants will be picked by editors. All battle hopefuls must sign up for a XXLBlockTalk artist page and submit an audio sample of their lyrics by May 25, a week before the battle is set to kick off on June 3.
Only 16 contestants will get to compete for the opportunity to be featured in XXL, have their song posted on XXLMag.com’s Bangers section and record a song to be used in a Scion promotional campaign throughout the year.
Of course, G4 has its own rap show...which you can vote as Best Music Series in The Webbys here...just sayin'...
