Over the next few months, Red Bull Batalla MCs will put their best wordplay and stage performance to the test in hopes of being one of the top MCs in the country and face off against returning finalists from 2023 including Nico B, Zazowan, and AdonysX, all hungry for the Red Bull Batalla U.S. National Champion title. The rightful winner of the competition will then set their sights across the Atlantic, as they represent the country at the world’s biggest stage for Spanish-language freestyle, the Red Bull Batalla International Final.
Following a historic 2023 Red Bull Batalla season which culminated at a sold-out International Final event at the Movistar Arena in Bogota, Colombia, this season is shaping up to be the most competitive yet. Freestyle hopefuls will fight for a chance to take the championship belt from 2023 International Champion Chuty as the final leg of the competition makes its way to his hometown of Madrid, Spain this November.
