The debut Total Slaughter main event is coming up this Saturday, and on tomorrow morning’s episode of Shade 45’s “Sway in the Morning,” all eight Total Slaughter contestants will be in one place for the first and only time before what is guaranteed to be the biggest event in rap battle history.
The hour-long Total Slaughter Face-Off special episode kicks off live at 11am tomorrow (Friday, July 11) on Sirius XM’s Shade 45 as host Sway Calloway—who will also be hosting Saturday night’s main event—sits down with all four members of Shady Records’ devastating rhyme foursome Slaughterhouse—Crooked I, Joe Budden, Joell Ortiz and Royce da 5’9″—and Mike Herard from Shady Records, to talk about the Total Slaughter rap battle league, Saturday night’s debut main event, and what the league hopes to do for the sport and battle rap community.
After that, contestants from all four battles will sit down face-to-face with their Total Slaughter opponent to discuss how they’ve prepared for the big event, and to exchange some last words before Saturday nights’ show down. The four match ups are: 1) Arsonal vs. Big T, 2) Daylyt vs. T Rex, 3) Loaded Lux vs. Murda Mook, and 4) Joe Budden vs. Hollow Da Don.
“Sway in the Morning” airs live weekdays from 8am-12pm on Shade 45 on Sirius XM.
