VIBE Debuts New Podcast On Battle Rap Culture, 'The Chosen' (Hosted By Nunu Nellz)
THE CHOSEN Podcast, hosted by the battle scene's stage Queen, Nunu Nellz, is a show that highlights the artists, entrepreneurs and personalities that shape Hip-Hop battle culture. A lot of success stories may look like they started overnight, yet took many years of hard work and dedication...we will showcase that journey through their stories.
The first episode of THE CHOSEN is with SMACK WHITE, the leader of MC battle culture as founder of the Ultimate Rap League (URL). This Queens, NY native is a great opening act for what The Chosen is about, success against all odds. A man who took the positive from his neighborhood and helped to create a global platform for people to exhibit their talent through battle rap.
And for some added flavor, the intro beat to the show is produced by none other than the infamous himself, Havoc of Mobb Deep.
Check the first of many great episodes to come of The Chosen Podcast.
