Rapper Rah Digga’s Smartphone Battle Rap Application Straight Spittin’ Now Available On All Platforms
(New York, NY – July 29, 2011) Veteran rapper and former First Lady of Busta Rhymes’ Flipmode Squad Rah Digga and Appalachian Apps are proud to announce a new smartphone application that allows users to battle rap each other, the first of its kind for Android, iPhone, Blackberry, and Nokia. Users all over the world can create profiles, buy beat packages, and earn the chance to even battle against bona fide rap celebrities.
Straight Spittin’ is the only audio-based battle rap application that allows aspiring rappers to battle in either freestyle or written form, to select different beats, verse length, and the number of rounds. The application anticipates today’s busy MC, giving them the option to schedule battles ahead of time, leave verses in their opponent’s inbox or just hone their skills in rehearsal mode. One of the most exciting features of the application is the option for the public to vote for winners. As MC’s win more battles, they advance from “Unsigned Hype ” to “Gold ” and eventually “Platinum” status, where they’ll be scouted for global battle competitions.
According to Rah Digga, battle raps have and always will be an integral part of the hip-hop community. “As someone who prefers more aggressive rhyming, it’s always refreshing to hear people rhyme like their lives depend on it,” she explains. “Hearing battle raps can remind people of what a real lyricist should sound like…or not.”
Having solidified her position in hip-hop as a gifted lyricist, Rah is now changing the world with her new app designed to give aspiring rappers a chance to show and prove themselves on a global stage at their convenience. Teaching aspiring rappers about the fundamentals of rapping and lyricism was the main catalyst for Rah’s involvement with this application. She believes it’s possible for someone to eventually get a record deal stemming from this app.
The application has been making great strides in the tech community. Straight Spittin’ was recently awarded 1st place in AT&T Open Call Contest and was 1st runner up in Microsoft’s Fast Pitch Contest. The app is also currently a finalist in Nokia’s $10M Calling All Innovators Contest.
