Keith Murray & Fredro Starr Are Finally Battling In Brooklyn This October

Hardcore hip-hop fans have been waiting to see Onyx’s Fredro Starr and Def Squad’s Keith Murray square off for years now, and thanks to M.C. W.A.R., it’s finally happening come next month.

The two venerated MCs will be going head-to-head in the battle rap arena (the first time two Gold-selling artists are publicly doing so) in Brooklyn, NY on October 4th. The battle was originally set to go down in Atlanta last year, but now it’s coming back to hip-hop’s home base. Unlike contemporary a cappella battle rap, Murray and Starr will be rhyming over beats spun by DJ Enuff, 16 bars per beat. In case you’re not in the area when this jumps off, the entire match will be live-streamed for free over at

Hip-hop’s best and brightest will be out and about for this one, so don’t miss out! Check out the trailer above.
