Remy Ma’s success as a mainstream rap artist hasn’t diminished her love for the battle rap scene, as the Bronx native has become an ambassador and force within the arena in recent years. With the launch of her Chrome23 battle rap league in late 2021, which held its first event this past February, Remy Ma is looking to build on Chrome23’s initial success with her new battle rap competition, The Tournament.
A competition exclusively for women, The Tournament will consist of 16 contestants from the battle rap community, with a $25,000 prize to the eventual victor. The first round of The Tournament will begin on Oct. 30, with the winners of each round being granted a three-week period to prepare for the next round.
The Bronx rapper launched her new battle rap league Chrome 23, last year injecting fresh energy into the scene. Since then, she has thrown two successful events featuring some of the biggest stars in the culture, resulting in some dope clashes. Remy also put some of the rising stars of female battle rap to the test on her One Shot card, some of whom were elevated to participate in her new tournament.
Titled “The Tournament,” Remy Ma wanted “a dope mixture” of veterans who for years have proven their abilities on the biggest stages and exciting newcomers who still have yet to make their mark.
Remy Ma shook the culture on Sunday evening (Oct. 9) when she dropped the trailer announcing the women battling in the tournament.
