Listen to Joe Budden on iHeartRadio

Rappers Joe Budden and Hollow Da Don will face off in a live rap battle put on by Eminem's Shady Records. 

Taking place at New York's Hammerstein Ballroom on July 12th, the "Eminem Presents: Total Slaughter" show will also feature a rap battle between Loaded Lux and Murda Mook. 

Shady Records President Paul Rosenburg says the event will help "elevate battle rap."  Ahead of "Total Slaughter," will release a four-part series called "Road to Total Slaughter," chronicling the journey of eight rappers who battle for a chance to take part in the "Total Slaughter" show. 

"Road to Total Slaughter" will arrive in June.  Tickets for "Eminem Presents: Total Slaughter" will go on sale May 16th.
