(AllHipHop News) Since this new era of battle rap has become one of the most popular sections of Hip Hop culture, several professional recording artists have crossed over to the battle realm. Canibus, Cassidy, and Joe Budden have all gone toe-to-toe with seasoned battle rap competitors. Up next Def Squad’s Keith Murray and Onyx’s Fredro Starr will battle each other at an MC WAR event in New York City.
Another rapper with major label experience could be jumping in the ring in the near future. Cory Gunz told MC WAR that he would consider taking a match. The YMCMB rapper reminded the world battling was how he got his start in Hip Hop.
“That’s how I got in the game – battling. It wasn’t publicized,” said Cory.
The “6 Foot 7 Foot” contributor added about possibly joining the list of industry emcees to battle, “If the bread is right, of course, but if it makes sense more. The situation got to make sense for me to do it.”
Cory’s dad Peter Gunz recently spoke with MC WAR as well. The star of Love & Hip Hop offered his thoughts on the upcoming Keith Murray Vs Fredro Starr contest. The battle is taking place at Milk River in Brooklyn. Purchase tickets for the event at mcwars.com or watch the live broadcast on AllHipHop.com.
