Mook Wants 25k To Kill A Nigga That's ill



Before I start this I would like to say I whole heartily feel Murda Mook DESERVES $25,000 for a battle because he is the the most popular battle rapper ever. I also feel that Mook coming back to battle would be the biggest thing EVER in battle rap. With that being said I’ve seen just about everyone say that Murda Mook wouldn’t be able to survive right now because battle rap is “different.”

I fully understand when people say that battle rap is a totally different ballgame now than it was back in the mid 2000's when Mook was battling. Back then you basically would run into someone and spit a whole bunch of random verses that were floating in your head at the time mixed with a few lines you may have came up with that actually pertains to your opponent, today it's the opposite. Another thing people bring up is the amount of people that are watching these battles live. Aye Verb brought up a great point by saying that Mook has never battled with over 500 people in the crowd. Will Mook be able to keep his composure and still perform at a high level with over 3000 people in the audience?

Now with all that say I think Mook would flawlessly transition into battling today without a hiccup. If you disagree all you have to do is look at T Rex, Rex is from the original era and is still a top nigga in this era. Rex hasn't changed a thing about his style at all. He can still go tit for tat with anyone in the battle game. Essentially Murda Mook is a bigger better version of T Rex, so if Rex can make the transition from the old era to the new Mook would have no problem.

Last week Aye Verb and Chigga Chase came up with a proposition to pay Mook the 25k and have him battle Aye Verb in Stl. Murda Mook was down but only wanted to have the battle in NY because he wants his return to be "big." Chase and Verb both said they'll only give him the money if it's in STL and Mook declined and said he'll just wait for someone to pay him to battle in NY. Now the matchup of Verb vs Mook is a dream matchup for a lot of battlers. Mook hasn't faced someone that can pick an opponent apart like Verb can, and it would be interesting to see how he'd handle that type of pressure. Millz and Lux may have been more lyrical, Jones more comical, and Party Arty[R.I.P] may have been more aggressive, but none of those guys are as cerebral and technical as Aye Verb. This battle has the potential to be an all time great if it ever goes down. We all know that Verb is despised in NY and never wants to battle there, while Mook insists on having the battle there. Will this battle ever come to fruition or will we just have to play the scenario over in our heads? Only time will tell, but I will tell you one thing, Murda Mook can and will adjust to the new style of battling very easy.
