Hollow Da Don spoke with Battle Rap Journalist Michael Hughes about the judging and fan reactions at his recent Total Slaughter battle with Joe Budden, in this exclusive clip with VladTV.
While Hollow got the victory, he explained that this “wasn’t the win I wanted,” because he feels like he didn’t perform to the best of his ability. Hollow apologized for posting on Twitter that he thought the judging was going to be rigged, but explained that he heard it from a credible source and was just speaking his mind on the matter before the battle.
He also addressed the high amounts of fan reactions Joe got from certain bars that may not have warranted a roaring response, and how he expected that to happen. Hollow went on to share the backstory of how he got his pay reduced by Shady Records, and how he feels they gave him an ultimatum to either accept the lower pay or not battle Joe Budden at all.
