Are you an aspiring Hip hop MC? Can you hold your own in a lyrical battle? Can you rhyme against the best hip hop MC’s in the pressure of a boxing ring?

HHTV the world's first online hip-hop television network is looking for talented and spirited MC's to battle in the boxing ring for its groundbreaking TV program entitled "FaceOff".

Building on hip-hop's strong legacy of battling, MC's will compete in the boxing ring, tournament style, for immeasurable industry exposure and the coveted title of Hip-Hop Television FaceOff Champion. Each MC will have 5 rounds each and each battle will be judged by 3 ringside judges. The show will air three times a week with repeats scheduled throughout each week, and all this information can be viewed by checking the show schedule on myhhtv.com.

“This is a great moment for hip hop and the art of Mceeing,” says Ganiu, the founder of HHTV. “We are continuing the hip hop tradition of battling and doing so in an extremely creative, unique and competitive environment. As a former MC myself, I used to love battling. To be able to do so in a boxing ring on a television show will be the ultimate high for any MC. My advice to MC’s that want to participate is to definitely bring your rhymes. When that bell rings, either you tear your opponent to pieces lyrically or get torn to pieces. Period. ”

The competition is open to all MC’s from anywhere but you must be able to appear in New York, as this is where the show will be filmed, at the Inwood Boxing Academy. “Thanks to Joseph Brender of Inwood Academy for his appreciation of hip hop culture and his generousity in allowing for the use of his gym for this ground breaking moment in hip hop” Ganiu says. “This is definitely going to be something to watch. Trust me.”
