Big T: "Battle Rap Should Be Monopolized"
"It's so big to the point where it should be an NBA," Big T says. "It's too many people battling on different leagues."
Sitting down for an exclusive with Battle Rap, Big T speaks on why he thinks the Battle Rap industry should follow a similar format to sports leagues like the NBA.
“It’s getting saturated, if that’s considered falling off, yeah” he says. “I just think Battle Rap should be monopolized right now. Basically it’s so big to the point where it should be an NBA. It’s just this...It’s too many people battling on different leagues. That’s how I feel. I think we’re maybe a year or two away from that. Somebody needs to get the big idea. These millions of views, I’m a person. I battle. I would have more fame and notoriety than a person that just put out a record. It’s getting very close. Very close.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Big T speaks on the hurdles battle rappers face when trying to switch lanes into the mainstream.
“I think it’s a stigma because they scared ‘cause we could come for their spot,” he said. “We could come up. Like 50 [Cent] told me, ‘Ya’ll could come up with the lyrics all day. Once ya’ll find that right, it’s gon’ be over.’”
