made hip hop a thriving music genre," MoTV1 founder,

open to any rapper who wants to enter from a kid in the
street to a multiplatinum artist. It's a true gladiator contest

contestants the tools to start promoting their talents the
instant they upload their video - and show the world what it
takes to be the next 1 World Hip Hop Champion."
