“This partnership with Fuse provides an invaluable platform to bring the culture and sport of battle rap to a wider audience,” says Montrel McKay, Executive Director of Development at Electus. “The team at Fuse believes in our and Shady Films’ vision for the potential of battle rap, and it’s exciting to have a partner who’s willing to take an unfiltered and authentic look into this world.”

Total Slaughter will be the debut live main event for the newly formed battle league of the same name, which was launched earlier this year by Eminem’s Shady Films and Slaughterhouse. The event will take place at Hammerstein Ballroom at Manhattan Center in New York City on July 12.
