Slaughterhouse announces MTV reality show: Road To Total Slaughter [News]
Brooklyn, NY – Hip-hop group Slaughterhouse confirmed that they will be putting out a reality show on MTV based on battle rapping called “Road To Total Slaughter.” In an exclusive interview on RapFix Live, the super group explained that the show will pit eight battle rappers against one another in a bracket-style competition with four rappers on each side.
Slaughterhouse will both judge and produce the show. “The winner of each side will co-headline the main event with two legends in the battle game,” Royce said. “It’s probably the biggest battle you can put on right now, on behalf of Shady Records and Slaughterhouse.”
Joe Budden added that “Battle rap is the talk in every street and every barber shop. People are really engulfed and seem to be in tune with what these young brothers have to say in the lyrics they’re putting out there.” To make it more captivating, viewers at home will get to know each rapper better throughout the course of the show. “It’s a reality series as well, The Road to Total Slaughter” Joe said. “We’re gonna put those eight guys in a house, they’re gonna live with each other for a week and you’re gonna be able to see them prepare for it as well.”
The eight rappers participating in the show will be Dizaster, Math Hoffa, Daylyt, Arsonal, Cortez, Marv Won, Big T and Aye Verb; artists that Slaughterhouse describes as “top tier battlers” and “assassins.”
“It’s giving these guys a platform that they didn’t have before,” Royce said. “Everybody knows they’re great if you follow them, so the goal is to put not only them, but battle rap itself, on this platform.”
The first battle has already been recorded in Brooklyn so stay tuned to MTV as the series will officially debut this spring. Check out some exclusive photos below.
