Last night Murda Mook took to Instagram and Twitter to reveal that Drake has challenged him to a battle. He posted a picture face to face with the OVO rapper and captioned the picture “So this is @champagnepapi telling me he wants to battle me. And he is actually serious! Who got the check?,” and now social media is amped and waiting to see how this will play out. Mook also says that Fab also said he would like to get into the ring, but he “would need some conditioning first,” and Mook says he respects that. It is too early to tell when or if this will actually happen, but we can hope.

Cassidy Vs. Freeway is arguably one of the best moments in Hip Hop. “Some people like Hip Hop for flows. Some people like Hip Hop for beats. I mean, I like that part too, but what overrules all that is lyrics, bars,” said Cass. “That’s what I like more than anything. And I feel as though it ain’t enough of that. When I was younger I used to hear niggas saying shit that I had to rewind or lines that I’m like ‘Damn, that shit crazy.’ That it’ll work your mind and make you think. I don’t hear that like a lot now.” Check out what else Cass had to say about the unforgettable battle and which great MC actually set up Cassidy vs. Freeway after the jump.
Lil Wayne ventured into talk of battle rap for his latest webisode of Weezy Wednesdays, inspired by this past weekend’s ‘Total Slaughter’ battle. Though he has yet to watch and doesn’t know the outcome of their battle, Tune shared his excitement over Murda Mook and Loaded Lux getting back in the ring, but made sure he let the world know he’s still Team Jae Millz…since Mook and Millz had quite the battle back in the early 00’s on Smack DVD. You’ve gotta ride with the home team! He also gave a shout out to Joe Budden, of whom he’s aware lost to Hollow Da Don, but couldn’t comment too much on it because again, he’s yet to see the battle. Tune added that he feels there’s no real loss in battle, particularly with an established artist like Joe, because he looks at it as a sport, and if you can still craft dope music, you’ll never lose. Do you agree? Listen to his logic in episode 21 of “Weezy Wednesdays” below and let us know your thoughts!

On Saturday night, Joe Budden made a huge move as an established artist stepping into the battle world and going against Hollow Da Don for “Total Slaughter.” Though his bars were CRAZY and he arguably bested Hollow 2-1, he kind of gave the W away when he put his mic down in the third round because he didn’t want to rap over the crowd’s boo’s. Many said Joey was putting his career on the line in this battle, but he seems pretty at peace with the outcome. Check out what he’s saying on Twitter in the gallery! What did you think of the event?
