This upcoming RVA Rap Elite episode contains a star-studded lineup to end the 2021 season. The producer's lounge will feature Bink, who has worked with the likes of Jay-Z, LL Cool J, Redman, Eve, Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, Mad Skillz, J Dilla, Joe Budden, Royce Da 5'9 and plenty of other artists ever since the 1990s. Bink, a native from Norfolk, Virginia, will display a series of beats during his segment of the show and it shows the growth of notoriety of the Rap Elite platform since its inception in 2018 at the famous Strange Matter venue in Richmond.
In the previous episode, emcee Rel Lyfe won in a wild sudden death in the open cypher portion of the show. Rel is looking to repeat as champion to end the season and further establish himself as a name to remember. It won't be an easy climb to the top though as the open cypher features a variety of names that have either been on the World Emcee cypher platform like Tone Redd, battled on the Southpaw Coalition League platform like Will Jung and Robalu, and prior cypher champions like Vintage A and King Fizzle. I can't even forget the emphatic emcees that have made names for themselves this season like Miss Simone J, Jason, $y G, and Madam V. The MVP standings for Rap Elite is neck and neck as it'll come down to either Mila Mansa or Tone Redd for the season's MVP crown.
