The Thursday HIT (Honored In Time): Murda Mook vs. Loaded Lux
Long before there was a URLTV, we had the Smack DVD era. The main event on said DVDs was always the battle at the end, and this is the greatest battle I've ever seen in my life.
Smack DVD Vol. 5. Mook was the young, hungry, witty monster looking to prove why he was the best. Lux had the presence of a veteran and looked to control the room as well as show people why he should have that crown. To this day I still wrestle with exactly who won this battle because neither of them definitively lost.
On a personal note this battle connects as well. My homie Juice, who passed away a few years back, would sit there with me and break down the entire battle. We laughed at how disrespectful it was when Lux said, "you better take this butter to escape this gutter. You’ll never make mills like Jae Millz mother." Or how Mook floated with the famous opening line "Murda Mook gettin them chips again. Last Smack, what happened...my shit got back from Switzerland." as he held his watch up.
Today is Juice's birthday and it's funny how it falls on a Thursday as I post my weekly look into classic moments.
Get familiar or simply revisit this classic as I often do. Enjoy.
