Fuse licenses Eminem’s battle rap series

Cable music channel Fuse has bought exclusive TV rights to Electus Digital's battle rap reality program Road to Total Slaughter, with extended versions streaming via WatchLOUD.com and YouTube.
June 18, 2014

Multimedia entertainment studio Electus Digital is to post extended, uncensored versions of its battle rap reality program Road to Total Slaughter on its WatchLOUD.com website and YouTube channel, after they air on the Fuse cable music channel.

When Road to Slaughter was first announced in late-April, it was slated to go directly to WatchLOUD.com, but Fuse will now be the first distribution window.

The licensing deal with Electus gives Fuse exclusive U.S. domestic television rights to the show. It will debut on the cable channel on June 18 at midnight, with subsequent episodes rolling out weekly on June 25, July 2 and July 9.

WatchLOUD.com will also post bonus footage of the series, along with an extended version of the special Bright Lights – a documentary-style look inside the lives of the four Total Slaughter headliners (Joe Budden, Loaded Lux, Murda Mook and Hollow Da Don) – which premieres on Fuse on July 10.

Co-produced by Eminem’s Shady Films and Electus Digital’s WatchLOUD.com, Road to Total Slaughter will determine the undercard contenders for the first-ever live Total Slaughter rap battle main event in New York City on July 12.
