Lux 3-0 easily. The nerdbirds will overhype all Verb’s material like they did with hollow but that won’t change the outcome.

The interesting thing about modern battle rap is that all Verb has to do here is not get 3-0'ed in order to stake a claim at a win. If he does that then he has W's over Hollow, Lux, and Mook. Giving his the best resume in battle rap according to Jay Blacc

Considering that this is taking place in Houston, I think Verb has a little bit more of an advantage in this battle.

excited for this. i doubt that it will live up to its monumental potential but nonetheless should still be pretty damn good.

That's how I look at it. This is the first time Lux has ever battled outside of the East Coast to my knowledge, while Verb is used to battling consistently away from home.

Lux is smart to take Verb now. Verb's name has never been bigger, but his skills still aren't up to full potential. As long as Lux sticks to the message and simply out writes Verb, he should take this.

Recent performance telling: I think Verbs style better for the win. Its hard to say what lux is coming but I think he`s too complicated for battle rap. Verb knows what to do

I think he beat mook convincingly

Great announcement & a fire-ass trailer to drop it. I feel like there’s not too many battles that people been talking about for years that I’d still be excited to see, but this is one that I’m SUPER hype for. Lux has always been one of my absolute favorites to watch and Verb on his A-game is as good as anyone. I think this matchup could/should bring the best out of both of them, glad to see URL is finally making it happen.

This isn’t Blackout, URL put their names in the video title because it’s not supposed to be a secret.

So I'm guessing Lux is already writing a new round for this battle to talk about Verb and ARP.

Where did you hear that? That could be a cool strategy... especially on SMACK and because he has never been a "trader" battling on RBE

I'm only guessing due to how left things went today, where it went from RBE dropping the announcement for Aye Verb vs. Iron Solomon at Pearly Gates 3, to Verb going in on how he gave back the deposit for the battle a couple weeks ago and said he was postponing the battle in order to devote all his attention to Lux, to ARP threatening to sue him, and at some point Verb wanting to run the fade with ARP. There's a bunch of other weird shit in the middle of all of it also, including Calicoe and Verb going at it, and ARP talking about Verb trying to offer up Drake as a replacement opponent for Iron.

Basically I could see Lux trying to do a segment calling Verb's loyalty into question, since ARP did give Verb battles with Pat and Mook at a time when his stock was a little down, summing it up with a bit about how Verb will jump to whatever league offers a big opportunity for him. I dunno, I'm just guessing.

Hope Drake hurries up and battles so he can get bodybagged on some current-era Canbius shit and we don't have to hear his name associated with this culture for anything other than unlimited cash again.

Makes sense. And I agree the whole debacle provides material for Lux. But I imagine Verb will also have a counter. For example, he could bring up something clever about Houston being Lux's first away game.

The Drake offer sounds like a reach, but iirc he was a cunt hair away from battling Mook on KOTD not too long ago

Drake battling would bring more eyes onto battle rap than any active battlers would ever be capable of doing (this includes Lux, Mook, Verb, Diz, Hitman, Surf, Ars, and anyone else who is regarded as popular that brings in views). That would be a good look for everyone involved from the leagues to the battlers and everyone in between.

What is with you guys hating anyone who is actually successful in rap outside of youtube? It's so weird. Also what exactly makes you think Drake would get bagged? Are you implying that kid is not nice and would be incapable of standing in front of someone and rapping on a stage? I assure you that he raps on stage in front of audiences that no battle event crowd will EVER compare to. Stop being ridiculous.

It's a tribal thing. Like if you never been to battle rap, don't ever come to battle rap, because you wouldn't understand battle rap- so stay the fuck outta battle rap!

Drake would get bagged first first time in the ring- because it would be HIS FIRST TIME IN THE RING. That said, I agree that Drake has skills and that if he sticks with it that he'd do better in his 2nd battle.

Aye Verb apparently told ARP that someone from Drake’s camp contacted him and said that Drake really wants to battle him. Verb offered ARP the chance to book that battle on RBE in exchange for allowing Verb to get out of the agreement to do the Iron battle (so he could focus on Lux instead).

ARP apparently declined this fake battle and is now bringing this up in a “How stupid do you think I am?” type of way.

Yeah I get it. Shit's still wild corny though. As a fan, especially a die hard, you'd want more people watching, no? I equate these mainstream rappers battling to Loghan Paul vs. KSV. Obviously not going to be witnessing a masterclass in the field, but more people are going to watch it than 2 really skilled people they have never heard of getting after it. What's even worse is when the battlers themselves bitch about the mainstream dudes. Complaining about how that person is getting paid so much and doesn't deserve it. Straight up hater bullshit, and they would say the same if it was directed at them instead of elsewhere.

Yeah I get it. Shit's still wild corny though. As a fan, especially a die hard, you'd want more people watching, no? I equate these mainstream rappers battling to Loghan Paul vs. KSV. Obviously not going to be witnessing a masterclass in the field, but more people are going to watch it than 2 really skilled people they have never heard of getting after it. What's even worse is when the battlers themselves bitch about the mainstream dudes. Complaining about how that person is getting paid so much and doesn't deserve it. Straight up hater bullshit, and they would say the same if it was directed at them instead of elsewhere.
Help me understand what KSV & Logan Paul's match did for boxing. I viewed it as a money grab for youtube celebs. But I didn't follow it too close.

Should fan want more people watching? Well, not necessarily if Total Slaughter is any indication of what the product gets turned into. I've heard the total slaughter event referred to as a Joe Budden concert- and I think that is accurate.

What battlers have complained about the mainstream dudes getting paid? I agree that hating on another mans paycheck isn't the best place to focus if your goal is improving your lot in life.

That said, the old adage about a rising tide elevating all ships might be relevant here. Meaning that a big name will bring more exposure and more rewards even for the lesser name battler. But is that adage always true or does it tend to be one-sided?
