After a relative hiatus for a variety of reasons over recent years after peaking in a major way, it appears that female battle rap may well and truly be back with Queen Of The Ring’s stacked “Watch The Throne 3” card set to go down tomorrow in New York. The five battles announced for QOTR, plus a surprise sixth battle seemingly in the works are:
40 B.A.R.R.S. vs. Couture
Ms. Hustle vs. Nu Jerzey Twork
Don Ladyii vs. Jada Raye
Chetta vs. Melato Black
RX vs Torture
Established in 2010 and developing into the premier platform for female battle rap worldwide, Queen Of The Ring quickly built a legacy and a loyal legion of fans to boot earlier this decade by league owners Babs Bunny, Vague and Debo. Since mid-2011, QOTR has amassed near 50 million views and cemented itself as one of the leading battle rap platforms along with URLTV, KOTD and RBE at its height in the years up to 2015/2016. This event presents a great opportunity for QOTR to make up for relatively loss time and build on the back of the successes that the male-dominated forms of battle rap had in recent years. The headliner of 40 B.A.R.R.S. vs. Corture has sent battle rap fans into a frenzy and if the event lives up to the hype it has generated, we can expect to see a lot more quality QOTR and female battle rap events in the near future.
One of the most exciting facets to this card is the one-rounder of Ms. Hustle vs. Nu Jerzey Twork, undoubtedly the most exciting battle rapper to emerge on URLTV in recent years. While the electrifying Twork had 2018 of peaks, lows and more peaks he can’t afford to not to bring his A-game against the legendary Ms. Hustle on her return to the ring. Great inter-gender battles have proven to be extremely popular with the 40 B.A.R.R.S. vs. Daylyt, C3 vs. Tay Roc, DNA + K-Shine vs. Bonnie Godiva + 40 B.A.R.R.S. 2 on 2 all proving wildly successful, so this presents a great and unique opportunity for both battlers as well as QOTR as a league.
