URL began with, SMACK DVD, a
monthly Hip-Hop DVD series in the
early 2000's documenting Hip-Hop
lifestyle and beef. After a while, rap
battles began to be featured at the end
of every DVD, sparking the interest of
many fans. It soon became the
mainstay of the series and bought
acapella battle rap to the masses. After
some years the popular DVD met it's
demise and acapella battle rap was
removed
from
mainstream
entertainment and returned to the
streets of the USA.
In 2010, the former staff of SMACK
DVD saw the success of the more
nerdbird-esque Grind Time battle
league and decided that it was the
perfect time to bring street acapella
battle rap back to the masses and
create the Ultimate Rap League (URL).
Since the URL has been the number 1
battle league in the world and has gone
leaps and bounds beyond all of it's
competition.
