About Us


Our mission is to inspire free speech, interest in literacy and language arts through the sport of battle rap. We see battle rap as a premiere form of entertainment going into the future, combining elements of both Hip Hop and sports for a new dynamic era of competitive entertainment. We intend to leverage this level of appeal to empower our mission. How will we accomplish this mission? We plan to host online and live events featuring both battle rappers and prominent members of the battle rap community alongside other public leaders, public figures, and members of the academic community to discuss the synergy and symmetry between the subjects and how this can be used to empower us as individuals and on the collective level.
