Big T Complains About Being Overlooked and Underpaid Compared to Industry Artists

Big T Calls Out the Mainstream Industry for Killing Battle Rap

Published on Feb 3, 2015 – Big T feels some type of way about the presence of the mainstream industry stepping into Battle Rap and corrupting it to the point where the beloved lyrical sport could potentially die.
He was so stressed out about this topic, that in order to truly address it, he had to take his camera for a long stroll through the brisk snowstorm in the “Windy City” Chicago streets. T endured the snowfall as he touched on how mistreated he feels Battle Rappers are, meanwhile, industry rappers have the ability to step into their lane and make more than they have possibly in their entire careers, for just one battle.

T doesn’t think that this is fair at all and that Battle Rappers, especially the true veterans of the sport like himself, should be paid accordingly and not underminded by industry newcomers. If industry artists are going to be given this favortism, then he thinks it is only fair that battlers be brought over to the music side of mainstream Hip Hop in order to showcase their skills. He hilighted various battlers who have broken the stigma that “Battle Rappers can’t make good music,” which he feels was wrongly placed upon them by the mainstream industry.

Do you agree with Big T? Should battlers be compensated as much as industry artists when they step in the ring with them?
