URL Owner E. Beasley Talks Drake, Battle Rap, and the Future
URL’s E. Beasley talks about Drake, Battle Rap Dominance, the future and moving forward when Eminem, Snoop Dogg and others want to!
When you think of fight rap, once you get past the old school trailblazers and back and forth, you have to think of the Ultimate Rap League – URL.
The name rings bells in fight rap, well outside the margins as some of these considered competitors. URL has mastered and cornered the market on the hyper-aggressive competitive culture.
Since their debut in 2009, modeled in part by the UFC, the battle league has risen in a similar trajectory at a 90° angle – upwards.
Three people own the URL – Troy “Smack White” Mitchell, Eric Beasley, and Jean “Cheeko” French.
E. Beasley recently spoke with Chuck “Jigsaw” Creekmur and gave an excellent and insightful chat about the company, the relationship with Drake, the business dealings with Caffeine, the future of the genre, and many more topics.
THIS WEEKEND – OCTOBER 30: Drake’s Til Death Do Us Part, an Ultimate Rap League event, will feature dream matchups between some of the biggest names in fight rap.
Fans can stream the show for free this Saturday at 6 p.m. EST via caf.tv/urltv.
