Million Dollar Rap Challenge
May 5, 2014

Email: albmngt@gmail.com


“The Million Dollar Hip Hop Challenge: A Battle for Rhyme Supremacy” is the new book by Damon “Kool Rock” Wimbley of the legendary Fat Boys and Sean XLG Mitchell. The challenge is in response to the overwhelming number of lists of the greatest rappers. Over the years everyone has weighed in on the topic from MTV to VH1, along with thousands of fans. Amazingly, there is no general consensus as to who is number one although a number of artists have been mentioned from Eminem and Jay Z to Tupac and Biggie. The million dollar challenge goes beyond a list and proposes an actual skills competition to determine the greatest rapper of all time.

The competition is designed to measure everything from lyricism and songwriting to battle skills, vocabulary and live performances. Kool Rock and Sean XLG invites all the top rap acts over the last 20 plus years to participate in the competition from Jay Z, Lil Wayne, Eminem and Rick Ross to DMX, Nas, Rakim and Big Daddy Kane.

Kool Rock explains “the majority of the lists we’ve seen of the so-called greatest are bogus and only a few warrant any legitimate respect. For the most part, if you weren’t into hip hop from the beginning you will absolutely not understand how to compile a real list. Mele Mel, Kool Moe Dee and Grandmaster Caz created the foundation of what we know as the MC so if you don’t know their impact on the game you really don’t know the game at all.”

The book delves into several categories of emceeing and details the critical aspects of skills and how they should be measured. Using a combined 70 years of experience in hip hop, Kool Rock and Sean XLG’s book “The Million Dollar Hip Hop Challenge” creates the blue print of a skills competition between artists with one million dollars on the line and winner takes all.
