Music discovery platform WAV debuted its new rap competition show Versus. Kenny Burns is hosting the series highlighting 11 up-and-coming rappers going head-to-head in Hip Hop related challenges for the crown.

Versus also features celebrity mentors and guest judges such as Curren$y, Casey Veggies, Trinidad James, Dumbfoundead, Dizaster, Nocando, Sonny Digital, and Scoop Deville.  Two finalists will get the chance to perform original songs produced by Digital and Deville.

Viewers will then select the winning emcee. The champion receives a cash prize and a record deal from WAV Records.

The first three editions of Versus are currently live on WAV. Episodes 4-5 will be added to the app on November 1 and episodes 6-7 will upload on November 8. Then in mid-November, the finale will stream live.
