A genre still in its infancy, although it has been around pretty much since the inception of Hip Hop, Latin Hip Hop now has some of the hottest artists out and growing ever so popular. With Music now being played in English and Spanish & artists going back and forth between both languages, it has developed into the next popular sound. Batalla De Los Gallos has played a key part in the bringing forth of MC's performing and expressing themselves in Spanish, and takes it world wide by having qualifiers in 14 different Spanish Speaking Countries and all meeting in Venezuela for the World Championship Finals.

Registrants enter into an arena reminiscent of a cock fight to combat each other with flows and lyrics in hopes to defeat one another until the very last word. They take shots at everything from the opponent's outward appearance, to the lack of skills. These MC's which all come from diverse backgrounds and sometimes different genres all have one thing in common, their love for Hip Hop and the fire to win and become number 1. This event has come to become one which no one in the Latin Hip Hop Community wants to miss and all want to be a part of, having already given birth to drama and underground notoriety for rappers!
