There is no battle rapper held in higher regard than Murda Mook. He was one of the first stars of SMACK/URL, going up against Jae Millz, Serius Jones, and Loaded Lux for classic on-camera battles before battle rap made it to bigger venues. When he brought back the du-rag for his breathtaking win against Loaded Lux at Total Slaughter, it was like a hero’s homecoming.
But long before he stole Lux’s soul this past July, Mook has been burying opponents. He’s in the Mount Rushmore of battle rap thanks to a laundry list of body bags, and he’s always scientific with his strategy. He’s so upper echelon, Drake is apparently challenging the god to battle. The Toronto rapper must not know the fastest way to Harlem.
This week, we go back in time and look at the best Murda Mook battles of his career so Drake can know what he’s really dealing with. The emotion, the charisma, the pinpoint focus. It’s all in the books.
Note: obviously, not all of Murda Mook’s battles are available to view on Youtube, so if you have a better selection that isn’t online, let us know in the comments what battles you think are Mook’s best.
