    Get that nigga loaded!

  • beloved

    We needs this work, whatever stage it may be.

  • url judge

    This was dope, but if you was really about that money, you would have just taken the money that smack was gonna give you to battle on SM3 and got free publicity and advertisment for your music. Im starting to think hes ducking hollow…

    • God Aweful

      Listen to this and then go watch Hollow vs Surf. Lux is at another level with it. I don’t think he is ducking. I think he believes he is really worth the 40 stacks. It is hard to argue when you look at his work, its impact and then how almost everyone is talking shit about SM3 because he isn’t on it.

      • BUCKSHIT

        shut up. what is lux gonna do next battle? use the same angle like he did versus cal? you grown men need to get off his dick. hollow kill him, so would jc and even o red

        • God Aweful

          Look at you… All emotional. That man spits fire and I respect the craft.

        • North

          Dumb ass. You think with a child’s mentality..even then

      • url judge

        Listening to hollow vs surf wont do you any justice because it isn’t hollow vs lux. Think about it, if you have been anticipating battling lux, and writing bars for lux and instead you get surf while you still think your battling lux in the near future are you going to waste your best bars on surf, or keep that clip loaded for lux?

        besides I don’t see why hollow cant beat him when lux barely escaped calico

        lux had 1 battle in 6 years and people act like he can’t be beat, he still has alot to prove, he choked in the 1st round against someone who isn’t even as good as hollow and only won because of the angle he used in his 10 minute 3rd round and now wants $40,000??? Any business man with any sense will tell him that hes fucking crazy

        luxs bars are not worth the 40,000 to smack because smack already said hes only selling 800 tickets at 100 a pop. Thats $800,000 that URL is gonna make off of tickets and lux wants half of that when smack still has to pay the venue, food vendors, equipment, and the other battle rapperz and he gotta eat too. He knows smack cant and wont pay him 40 racks

        • Rexchap

          Nigga , what school did you go to? 800K ?? are, you stupid or what, it’s only 80K…besides that…..There’s a winner take all 30k off er on the table if they do it! Star said he’d get them that much money if Smack allows it

        • url judge

          Nigga please, its a typo. You saw me out that lux is asking for half which is $40,000. Don’t overreact to nothing. I saw the video where star said that and that actually proves my point more. If he still doesn’t battle hollow when star is going to out up $30,000 winner takes all then its not about the money, he is ducking hollow

        • Rexchap

          DUCKING? Of course that’s what the simple folks would say, but let’s get there first! Lux and Mook, ask for the money they ask for , for a reason…a legitimate reason, too! That money he asks for IS THERE, do NOT let anybody tell you differently! BELIEVE ME,…..the PROBLEM is that Smack and Beasley are novices at business, STILL! All you have to do , like whote folks do, is LET your STAR SHINE! Lux is the proper MOUTHPIECE to bring this to a WHOLE NOTHA LEVEL! Just the mere fact that he sat with HOWARD STERN! Smack and Beasley need to learn how to market this right! I said a coupla years back, that this has a SHELF LIFE, like everyting else in HIP HOP has/had and the expiration date is NEAR

        • Rexchap

          .oops…white

        • url judge

          If a nigga says he will put up $30,000 winner takes all for you to battle someone that you are supposedly gonna body anyway and you turn it down then it starts to seem like your ducking that person. What better chance does lux have to do this than Sm3??

          if they end up doing the battle at sm3 then it won’t look that way. There’s too much for lux to benefit to not do it

        • Rexchap

          That’s a simple nigga, street way of thinkin…You are missin the point, there MORE to benefit than just 30G’s if done CORRECTLY! Nevermind!!!!! Forget it!

        • Rexchap

          there’s

        • url judge

          Thats my exact point nigga. He will get the $30,000 plus what snack was gonna pay him plus all the free advertisment and publicity for his music plus another body in his closet to cement him as the greatest right?

          look at how he blew up after sm2. He had jay z tweeting about him, he had redman and method man in his videos n shit. His statues went significantly higher and he has his best chance to build upon that by battling hollow at sm3

          you telling me you would throw all that away for a few extra racks?

          yea im a street nigga, but im never simple minded lil homie

        • Rexchap

          A FEW? LOL A FEW?? Damn nigga, you don’t know how the business world REALLY gets down do you? I’m gonna stop, cuz anything else and i’m cheating myself! REAL businessmen pay a grip for consultants. I aint tellin these fools how to expand and get this shit REALLY poppin! Think what ya want and complain when you see fit!

        • url judge

          Nigga you haven’t explained shit and you never do. You haven’t made 1 good point. Your just rambling.

          Lux is snoozing on a major opportunity if he doesnt do it at sm3 period

        • Rexchap

          COMPREHENSION…again! For me to SAY is giving away free advice …NIGGAS are just dumber than ever …i keep saying it …..SMH!!!! Keep thinking like a corner nigga! UNREAL!!!! 30g’s.??..nigga pennies in the scheme of things!

        • url judge

          YAWN…. you aint talking about shit nigga. The only advice you got is bad advice. And if you actually would learn how to read I told you he was coming up ALOT more than 30 G’s….

        • Rexchap

          NO, nigga TRUST me, we ain’t even in the same ballpark with this conversation! You’re too young to understand how this works, but your testoterone and ignorance will never let you STFU and try to understand some things….absolutely clueless.! Get OFF the block and take some business/marketing and promotion classes

        • url judge

          Lmfao so your that guy? You just proved yourself to be a clown. Nothing more is needed for me to say. You just proved my point yet again. Goodbye

        • clash

        • rexchap

          Nigga i’m WELL established and twice your fuckin age! I talk what i KNOW! Stay smoking that Kush and hangin on the block! An IGNORANT person would say that to someone they don’t even KNOW! I don’t have nothing popping? Yeah OK and this is the part where i’m supposed to stoop to an immature, nigga level and tell all i got and what whip i’m pushin…. ROFLMAO!!!! Bout to be 2014 and niggas are dumber than ever! Damn SHAME!

        • rexchap

          Your dumb ass better HOPE you make it to my age and wise the fuck up! Hope you learn some things…dumb fuck! But i’m guessing NOT! Probably got the ignorance honestly! Not your fault! LOL

        • url judge

          Your still on this? Goddamn bro, stop getting so emotional over this shit. And nobody believes you. You’re probably some high school kid. Stop getting your panties all in a bunch, lux don’t give a fuck about you lmao!

        • rexchap

          High school? LOL MANY MOONS ago…you need to go to bed and catch that bus in the mornin! You know you can’t be late for home ec. Dumb ass! This is more about SMACK and URL and how they NEED to capitalize on this hit before it’s over, but they’re still rookies! They don’t have the business sense!!! Lux’s demands is not out of the question! They’re going backwards….SMH Now selling less tickets? Always forward never backwards! They don’t get it! Now giving niggas timeout cuz they ain’t bringing it! Lettin niggas go elsewhere to make some change……Damn! I’ll say it again…rookies!!! This shit will be a wrap within 3 years if they don’t do it right! Ya gotta spend money to make money! and i don’t mean coming out of your pocket maybe 50 grand TOPS, which is being generous on my part. This is a multi MILLION dollar market that these niggas have no clue on how to tap into! SMH!!! Niggas doing shirts and smokin and drinkin whatever nigga pennies they get…..SMH I’ll give ONE piece of free advice if they WANT to get on the right track……LOSE SMACK as the mouthpiece! Start THERE!

        • url judge

          Lol nah, you just seem like one of those women who absolutely have to have the last word at everyrhing, so im gonna let you, don’t trip shorty lol

        • God Aweful

          Barely escaped Calicoes? I was with you until that and then I stopped reading.

        • url judge

          Yea he barely escaped calicoe. He CHOKED in the 1st round!! Then it wasn’t until the end of the second round that he started really killing calico. Plus he needed a long ass 3rd round.

          that was his first battle in 6 years!! If you guys would pay a rapper $40,000 for that kind of performance than you should never ever be business men, you won’t make it

        • God Aweful

          I’m not interested in debating a battle that was one sided. Call it bias or whatever but Calicoe couldn’t keep up in any round and he only won the first round by default. Now as far as the choke is concerned towards paying him for his next battle… Let’s be fair, a lot of choke artists have been getting paid even with a pattern of choking or just not even having written rounds. That was one choke in a battle that probably the most view battle and definitely the most talked about battle based solely on what Lux did. No one really cares about what Cal said. Shit very few still care about the other battles on that card. Bad business, good business or whatever… There is supply and demand. Right now the demand is for Lux.

        • url judge

          That battle being one sided is your opinion. It was supposed to be one sided. If lux wouldn’t have choked, and he would have gotten a chance to spit that second round that he released on youtube then it would have been a body. However that choke had a domino effect that made it closer than it was supposed to be.

          yes other rappers are getting paid while stumbling and choking, but which one of them were asking for $40,000 again? And the fact that lux’s summer madness 2 battle is the most viewed and most talked about battle helps lux the most out of anybody. His battle against hollow at Sm3 would have been even more hyped as a direct result of that.

          Lux blew up after sm2. He had jay z tweeting his slogan n shit. If he would of battled hollow at sm3 and bodied him like everyone is saying he is going to then he would really be cementing himself as the best in the game

          Say what you want, but people are making excuses for him. Until the battle goes down, lux is leaving the impression that hes ducking hollow

        • ms marjane

          Lux couldn’t possibly be ducking Hollow. He wants his pay day. So does Mook. Smack and URL blew up after SM2, as well. He got cross-promotion with Ciroc, all the OGs pushed URL brand and got behind the league, he signed a whole set of contracts with battlers after SM2, and he wound up with a Fri slotted pilot on BET – all on the performance of the MCs, the league as a whole, and the brand.

          From my perspective, 40 gs is a lot of dough to cough out for a battle, but it’s also obvious that smack and his team don’t have the resources or the energy to parlay their own business into hard cash flow. If you consider that he could actually put a lux vs hollow battle on pay-per-view as well, along with ticket sales, the 40G number seems kinda small. With support from puff or other big names who support the leage, and/or BET, he could have made this event very big and recouped expenses, maybe even negotiating with the network to handle distribution -replays on cable, etc. He doesn’t just have ticket sales, he has other revenue channels at his disposal that maybe he’s not taking advantage of or not moving on.

          Or at least, it’s obvious he’s not generating cash flow that’s lucrative for all of his contracted battlers and featured performers. It seems like the URL team doesn’t really have it together. Look at the frequency and total number of battles released from NOME. They can’t even produce edited, high quality editions of their battles on a consistent basis. He’s not capable of even promoting and putting on SM3 in a manner that suits the demand of his fans.

          In the end, it seems he’s mostly selling tickets and getting shine for the brand, and he’s falling out with the same people who generated those ticket sales. I think lux might be the extreme example of what many other performers are trying to do. In the end, he looks to be in the position to have the resources, but he’s not and he can’t make it work. It would be one thing if lux was the only fan favorite not on their, but it looks like the sm3 card is full of second-stringers and new names. He’s pushing the ‘bars over names’ theme, when it’s actually the names (and those bars) that got him to where he’s at in the first place. I think they all tried to shake him down, and he flipped the script. Maybe he didn’t really have a choice.

        • North

          Lux barely escaped Calicoe…? Lmaoo. Totally wrong. I take it you’re still in high school?

  • God Aweful

    Yeah…. Ummm…. That was flames. Nothing you can really say to knock that.

  • Guapo_ACE

    #fie I need this song

  • ms marjane

    however smack handled the politics behind sm3, y’know its fucked up when a one of the prime members of your community diss you out the gate.. the mcs who put smack where he is feel shitted on.. and that’s not good for url. if puff or bus (or anyone with $$) came along with those 40Gs, and a few lucrative deals to get battles with the main roster on video, i can see some these guys jumping ship.

  • Rexchap

    Star MAY put up 30 stacks, winner take all against Hollow! Star want to go thru the proper channels and not step on Smack’s toes! Lux will give Holow a LYRICAL ASS WHUPPIN!!!! Make it happen!

    • Rexchap

      …oops Star WANTS and HOLLOW….

  • Dev

    lux killed this beat

  • ScottyPimpen33

    At the end of the day, Lux is not going to ask for an amount of money that would involve smack taking a “loss”. Lux understands how this works and who makes what, so he’s only asking for what he knows is affordable. Sure 40 is a stretch, but I’m sure he’s not going to ask for an amount of money that would leave smack broke.

    Now on the other side of the coin; Lux would be a fool to take this hollow battle anywhere else but Smack. It just wouldn’t be right if it was done in any other league. The views wouldn’t be the same, the crowd wouldn’t be the same and neither would the level of respect he would get for the battle.

    I hope they work something out, because I don’t wanna see this battle on any other league my damn self.

  • Macmar415

    Anyone who thinks loaded is worth smack paying 40K obviously wouldn’t spend the $300-$400 dollars on the tickets for SM3 in the first place. Think about it, How can he afford to pay 1 battle rappers 40K and still pay the other 11 or so & pay staff, venue, venue staff and make something for himself off of a 1200-1400 crowd(if that), without charging an arm and a leg on tickets? Who’s paying $400 to stand around for 10 hours when I can pay half that for a Jay Z concert WITH food and seats?

    I’m just saying. Regardless if lux is worth it or not, it’s a business to showcase these mc’s and smack ain’t trying to be upside down on a business investment just to make 1 nigga “lux” happy.

    NOW ABOUT STAR…..

    If lux turns down the 30K that star is willing to put up then yes, IT’S NOT ABOUT THE MONEY, IT’S A DUCK MOVE on his behalf. No street nigga I know turning down 30k to spit 3 three minute rounds…..period. Anyway you add it up 30k is 30k! You’re going to front on 30k just cause you wanted 10k more? NO ONE WOULD EVER DO THAT. Lux can talk that grown man shit all day, but if you would rather have 30k LESS in your pockets because of your EGO then you’re just beating yourself! At the end of the day, you could be 30k richers (which translates to 10k per 3 minute round which is triple what diddy offered Rex & Verb), or, you can continue posting video responses making yourself look stupid for turning down that bread.

    For all you who didn’t get what I meant by “posting video responses making yourself look stupid for turning down that bread”, let me ask you this;
    If you had a chance to shoot a video response for not taking a battle
    OR
    possibly making 30 racks from a battle
    which one would be more profitable & a better investment of your time & lyrical ability?

    • Macmar415

      Just to make 1***

    • Don’t be a fool

      Correct all the way around. I just saw this and you said it perfectly. Battle rappers lost they damn mind. Respect the hustle, but now they pushing it.

    • Rexchap

      Do you REALLY think LUX, who ALREADY believes he’s on a higher level, would pass up 30g, cuz he scared? If he passes, there would be OTHER factors that you won’t be aware of up front, as to why it didn’t go down!! TRUST! On NO day can HOLLOW match wits with LUX! Star wants to go thru the proper channels to set it up!

      • Macmar415

        I totally agree with you on the lux vs hollow lyrical ability but it doesn’t require more than 2 mc’s agreeing and contracts being signed. They can always make amendments to the card and tweet it out, or use other channels of advertisement like battle rap arena to get the word out or make a quick blog. Personally, I know hollow has rounds for lux, but I’m not sure if lux has rounds ready for hollow. That might also be a factor considering sm3 is right around the corner!

    • Macmar415

      Correction, the only way I could see Lux turning down the 30k star is willing to put up is if he has something lined up around the same time as SM3 paying him more money, but I as a fan and not someone in his personal life can’t I see that being the reason. That doesn’t mean that’s not the reason, I just can’t see it being the reason.

    • CornelWest

      You haven’t considered the advertising/sponsorship revenue Smack is eating off of. Lux wants a slice of the pie, and why shouldn’t he when his comeback generated 3 million views?

      • Macmar415

        Let’s be clear about one thing. Yes he generated over 3 million views but nigga please… if everyone based their paycheck per performance off of views smack wouldn’t be around today! Yes lux had a great performance, but can we be reasonable about it? There are a lot of mc’s who have great performances on smack but do they all deserve 40k a battle? Shine killed it against dna but does he deserve 40k for sm3? There is a line between being paid handsomely and being fucking greedy and 40k is pretty fucking greedy imo. I remember his blog / interview when he was playing chess and it was for the love of the “Culture / Movement & for the Love of Hip-Hop” then after ya head gets big from ONE performance YEARS LATER it’s “Bout my money” ? So tell me this then, if people are going to follow lux and say hey you know what, I think I’m worth 20k smack or I ain’t doing it what’s going to happen to the culture? It will die because us as the “typical” minority race with ruin something that’s good yet again, & has potential to be great over fucking greed! I’m tired of explaining this simple shit to you commercial ass greedy fucks. Look at MC Hammer. That nigga did the same shit all you fucks want smack to do and hammer went bankrupt making everyone around him rich but himself. I’m done on this convo, keep it moving!

        • Logic

          It’s ok to have differing opinions fam. There are always two sides to a debate. Your opinion or the appositive are both fair. Doesn’t mean they’re both right or wrong. It’s perfectly fine to agree to disagree. At the end of the day, both Smack and Lux made their decisions. They both have to live with them. Not you.

        • cas

          http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRnSFGtrnig i think this video will help you understand

      • SpiT

        what were his views b 4.??? they wasn’t doing shit.!!

    • Logic

      I agree whole heartedly fam. But to be honest, it sounds like Lux is admitting (on the record) that he took a paycut to take Calicoe. Even with a choke, he gave them the most talked about battle in recent history. They came back with a number to pay Lux and he figured that he’s worth more than they offered. No one can fault that man for that. He’s gotta live with himself for that decision. If his mixtape downloads translate to show money, club appearances, etc., he should be alright. Mook asked for 50k and never once got a sneak diss from Smack. Lux asks for 40k and gets blasted on cam. Gets the proverbial low ball of 30k (based on his number) and gets blasted again. Regardless of whether Lux choked, his battle (with a choke) was talked about in more circles than any battle in recent history. That’s worth something. 40k? I’m not sure. But it ain’t my bread though.

      And I’m not even a fan of Lux as a battle rapper.

    • Track King Cole

      YOUR AN IDIOT… SAYING LUX IS DUCKING PEOPLE..

      • Macmar415

        Dude read what I said would be the ONLY reason he wouldn’t take the battle before posting dumbass remarks!

    • Goonie

      Mook battle was boring and Lux is better than mook if you are nice you can ask for what you are worth. Movie stars who step their acting game up getting an oscar can ask for 10 to 20 mill because they proved it. Fuck the haters! You are the Mayweather of battle rap as one cat said this is dope!

      • brandon davis

        mook beat lux already. fuck is you talkin bout

        • Goonie

          By saying this bullshit i kno u a bum so i’ll ignore that. They say Lux is counting other niggaz money I think he just counting his money lol. Smack must understand A ARTIST CAN SELL HIS TALENT WITH OUT SMACK BUT SMACK CAN”T SELL SHIT WITHOUT THE ARTIST GIVE THEM NIGGAZ THEY BREAD. LUX BEEN PUTTING IN WORK FOR A LONG TIME LIONZ DEN I SIAAH

      • Macmar415

        Movies sell WORLD WIDE also! Smack / URL is selling to a crowd of 1200 people or less, smack said that in his blog! The return isn’t the same fam. You’re trying to compare a movie star’s 10-20 million asking price for a movie that might generate hundreds of millions of dollars to an artist asking for 1/3 of smacks / url total generated income after the event. I did the math already trust me. and actually it would be slight more than 1/3. Lux could ask for whatever he feels he’s worth, but not using common sense knowing url can’t support his request shows he’s a bit greedy.

  • Verified Real N!gg@

    Smack doesnt pay these vendors. They provide all they stuff for the free advertisement. Plus smack not putting up the money for the battlers. You niggas is slow.

    • Macmar415

      Beasley already covered how he pays for security for the venues and based off of what’s needed will ultimately determine the over all cost of the venue for one. For 2, the mc’s are paid off of ticket sales, drinks sold and shit like that. However, they do front 1/2 of the pay to some of these mc’s prior to the battles.

      • Verified Real N!gg@

        I hear you. But i know a couple of these battlers personally. And a lot of these nba players put up the bread for the battlers cause its the match ups they wanna see. #RealTalk no lie my man.

        • Macmar415

          See, and that’s all the more reason why Lux shouldn’t duck this 30K from star!

        • Verified Real N!gg@

          I agree i wouldn’t duck 30 either. Only way i can understand where lux is coming from is if he really did sm2 for free then smack should pay him what he ask for. Smack gets paid off of every youtube view as well. And lux cal is over 2mill

        • Macmar415

          3,100,986 to be exact but yeah, I’m with you on that! Or, I could see him ducking if he had something else lined up paying him more than what the sm3 would’ve. That’s a better business move on his part to make the most money for his time / talent.

        • Verified Real N!gg@

          Word! I truly feel it wouldnt of been a big deal if smack didnt do that blog. That shyt was totaly disrespectful

        • Macmar415

          Ya he could’ve kept that between himself and the artists, but there was a little truth to it. As a paying fan, I’m not trying to spend my hard earned bread for niggas to show up telling me they not even writing rounds. Then have url paying these mc’s(regardless of where the cash came from) to short change the investors. If I “Donate” money to get certain battles formed, or I pay outta profits and they don’t even write rounds, then I lose money and / or it makes me look bad to my investors because they’re investments just turned into free money for a battle mc who only thinks about that pay check at the end.

  • Don’t be a fool

    Man Lux lost his damn mind to think he worth 40k for a rap battle in which he can choke, not finish, get beat, or have a biased crowd. This isn’t a hip hop concert where you know what to expect and can otherwise sue for breach. Smack might not see 40k from an event(s) so to pay one guy 40k and pay the other people on the card is ludicrous. Where they suppose to make up the money to pay him? Tickets already 100 bucks, most venues hold only a few thousand (they aren’t hugh arenas), and you can’t expect people to pay 500 for a ticket. Smack would be a fool to go into the red for one dude who had a great third round against calicoe and hasn’t been on the scene in years.

    • North

      Seems like you’re the greater fool. Lux choked once in the start, and it’s fairly obvious why, so to say he’ll choke again when he’s the rapper who can rap for days without stopping is stupid. Lux is worth the money he wants because is brings the attention SMACK wants. Think harder. A Loaded Lux vs anyone is worth more than the entire SM3 card.

      • Don’t be a fool

        I didn’t say he would choke, I said he can choke, not finish, or have a biased crowd. As in you don’t know what you are getting since battle rap is solely about the performance on that given day. We don’t have a lux catalog that we can go listen to and then be ready for a concert or some ish. The dude asking for 40k and got one decent battle in a decade. It’s been plenty of battles that can get a million plus views. Secondly, only Stans are giving this dude legendary status after a good battle against calicoe. C’mon son to think to pay a dude 40k is retarded, this had summer jam or the garden or some shit. SM3 will sell out like the other smack events without Lux on the card, so if he selling the same amount of tickets without Lux on the card how exactly is Lux worth more than anyone on the card? Youtube pays something like pennies-5 bucks per 1000 views. So 3 mil views divided by 1000 equals 3000 so times that by 5 and you have 15 gs if Smack even gets 5 bucks per 1000 views or subscribers (more likely than not he doesn’t). Pay Lux 40k and you in the hole 25k off top if Smack gets 15k, Now pay for venue, pay other battle rappers, pay commission fee to ticket master, pay security, pay marketing, pay staff at event and staff at URL, and then pay yourself. Now you do the math off the tickets sold and tell me is one dude, who had one battle in the last 8 years worth 40k?an choke, not finish, get beat, or have a biased crowd

    • SpiT

      i also wanna see dis lame nigga battle in Detroit or Chicago fuk the home-field advantage….show some balls little nigga……to many rappers been battling for the last 6 years to be paid less than you….can’t believe how many niggas riding & crowning his ass over ‘1’ battle……and some dumb dik riders talkin bout luxx vs busta rhymes….is niggas fo real..!!!

  • KingBKings

    If you do it for the love of the culture why do you need 40 grand, If you do it for the love of the culture it should be about entertaining your fucking fans.

  • Aubrey OVO

    Ay Lux if you really about that money, holla at me for some better quality beats. Whoever mixed this song ripped you off with all that distortion from not properly mixing them 808’s and bass melody.

  • dboy31

        • North

          Is that you calicoe? Do you like real Hip Hop and genuine lyrics? Apparently not. Say fuck Lux is like saying fuck real Hip Hop. So Fuck you.

        • clash

  • King eightOfive

    smack break bread nigga, if lux didnt hop in last sm3 your fan base wouldnt of grown so quickly and niggas wanna see lux, mook and other niggas battle.. Cut the shit and cut the check… i see niggas saying do it for the love and the culture but everything you see niggas do that love and have a passion for is to get a check!!!

  • Rambo

    2,000 ppl x $100 per. ticket is $200,000… If the tickets are $300 that’s 2,000 ppl x $300 per ticket = $600,000… If you think Smack not clearing $1 Million+ per event, with sponsors and etc., you don’t know business. Smack can afford to pay any rapper anything.. And If Loaded lux and hollow the don or murda mook set up their own venue to battle eachother, they would sell out and make what smack would, or close to it… It’s business… Smack brand will die out if he don’t start booking more quality battles.. Theres ALWAYS someone on the come up… Just saying..

    • RogerBliddack

      I disagree. Smack is not clearing nowhere near $1 million per event. First off, not all of the people you see in the audience are paying to get into the event. Please believe that each emcee be bringing LOTS of folks in for free on the guest list. In fact, I’d guess roughly about 1/2 to 2/3 of the total people seen at any given event actually PAY to get in the door. But before that happens Smack & Beasley have to pay to rent the Venue, plus pay for Security, and Insurance, and Advertising (i.e. Marketing and Promotions), and Online Ticket Processing Fees, and Pay for Talent to perform (i.e. cover Airfare, Hotel Rooms, Transportation, etc. and Pay for Verses), and Production Costs (i.e. pay a small Film crew, and Equipment Rental, and Video editing & Post Production) and probably kickback some money to the “cops” to keep them from shutting down every event (if you ever promoted a large event in NYC, you know what this means)… then after ALL OF THAT…. whatever profit is left gets split up 4 ways between Beasley, Smack, Chico & Norbes off the top. Ain’t nobody got $40K to pay these rappers after all these ‘upfront costs’ are paid for. Star is correct…. Lux ain’t gonna get $40k to battle from nobody else. The only way emcees like Lux or Mook gonna get a $40k or $50k paycheck is if there is a ‘Corporate Sponsor’ involved to cover all the fees upfront, which would allow Smack & Beasly to pay more money to the Talent.

    • url judge

      Smack already said hes only selling 800 tickets to sm3, so right off the bat that $200,000 is reduced to $80,000.

      • Edwin Stagg

        because without them names who gone buy that why he talking bout he aint giving out that many tickets because he know he cant sell that many in real life he gone sell as many as he could and keep fooling dumb ass young niggas like you

        • url judge

          Lmao did I hurt you’re feelings? You seem kinda emotional over there. Dont get you panties all in a bunch G lol

        • Edwin Stagg

          OG I BARELY REALIZED IT WAS YOU @URLJUDGE OH I DONT WEAR THEM NOTHING TO GET IN A BUNCH OVER HERE

  • Lose lose

    Smack stuck between a rock and a hard place. If he pays 40k in going in a hole financially off top. He has to increase tickets prices to pay lux and the other battlers. Secondly, it’s a monkey see monkey do world. You actually have dudes who have out in way more work than lux, hell lux been gone a decade or some ish., they are going to start wanting outstanding amounts of money. This is a business, yeah they scream its a culture, but it used to be done on street corners and record shops for free. The moment you started paying it became a business, and you can go out of business. I bet if smack lose his shirt with this shit, none of them negros will fuq with him nor remember they weren’t getting anything like this prior to smack. Niggas fickle when it come to remembering who put you own. Crab mentality

  • Raymond

    Bottom line is, SM3 has no Lux, no Hitman, and no Hollow. Those are the 3 most famous battle rappers who have earned their right. I’m not blaming Smack, but there’s a pattern here. There’s gotta be a middle ground. Both sides need to come together because they both need each other. #nodebating

    • Florida Boy

      i keep hearing bout him and Hitman beefing but i dont have twiiter so idk what happened or what was said

      • Raymond

        Basically, Hitman was upset that URL released Arsonal vs. Verb before him and Con. I agree with his point, but then Hitman OD’d. Here is the twitter back and forth: http://www.battlefix.com/2013/07/28/hitman-holla-says-he-was-banned-from-the-url/

        • Florida Boy

          Oh god damn he went in….i get where he coming from on the whole Arsonal part but u right he went way too far, he must have had a real fucked up day to get set off like that

  • CHUCKP 317 MOFO

    fuck LUX…….. HE NOT WORTH 40K.. .. NOT EVEN 10K

    • Edwin Stagg

      well thats why summer madness will fail but it aint worth it right

    • golddus

      but meek millz and Cassidy worth that

      • CHUCKP 317 MOFO

        HELL NAW

  • flipper773

    Smack is right. HTF you gonna charge smack 40K to get back in the ring. Nigga havent battled in like 10 years since sm2. Should be doing a few battles or something before even hitting the url stage and summer madness at that. Lux is getting way too hot headed. Dude need to chill the fuq and think more about the culture than money. krazy nowadays.

  • iiJussLeftColumbia

    i think lux is definitely worth 30k for a battle. Because at the end of the day smack makes that just off youtube views, and lux battle literally changed hip hop. I even think mook deserved 20k for the last summer madness besides his terrible performance. But just off his name alone he build smack to what it is today. He didn’t make a dime off his battles against jae millz or party arty but smack did. Lux knows he won’t have a bigger battle than he did against calicoe, so he wants to make as much money as he can while he still hot. At the end of the day everybody across the world watches battle rap, and these artist need to be paid what there worth. Nobody comes to see smack, they come to see the battle rappers.

    • RogerBliddack

      Youtube only pays roughly $3,300 per 1 million views.

  • Raymond

    Idk why people on this board act like Smack is ONLY in this for the culture. Yea, that’s a piece, but Smack always looks fresh. He’s not rocking all those gold chains and watches by making pennies. Let’s not be dumb about this.

    Bottom line: It’s bad business practices to air your money makers out like Smack did (Lux, Hitman, DNA, Clips, etc). This is battle rap, yes, but it’s a business, too. Smack is not a battle rapper! He should have taken all these top tier dudes to the side and told them what’s up: I need better performances for the money I’m paying, or else I’m going to pay you less or get younger dudes. Not release some passive aggressive blog post.

  • Dat_Flyy_Capricorn_Nigga

    All the battles should be winner takes all than you will have better performances.

  • Dat_Flyy_Capricorn_Nigga

    smack need to get lux, ored, reed dollaz, head ice, yung ill, b magic, 40 barrs, mook, ill will all on one card

  • Spyda

    Game recognize game. Smack ain’t paying out those numbers again cause the only source he had to make those numbers don’t want to host any URL events (Webster Hall).

    Do the math:

    Webster hall max capacity is 2,500 people. Multiply that by $100 a head.=$250,000 potential income if its a major event going on like SM3
    enough bread to pay everyone and still have money in the bank.

    The new venue (Studio whatever) cant hold that many people. for him to make his bread back he would have to raise prices on the tickets. Mind you that there is still the issue of security.

    Smack still loses money when releasing the battles online as you didn’t pay to see it live. He does make some money on views from Youtube and advertisements but not enough to cover his losses.

    So in order to keep it 100 across the board more people need to come to the events to warrant a larger venue like theatre at Madison sq. Garden (holds 5,000 people) to get enough bread to pay everybody they asking price or close to it and still have a profitable venture.

    To all the do it for the culture fanatics: give it up. The moment money got involved it became a hustle. Cant be mad at Lux for trying to get money when if you was in his shoes you would do the same thing

  • FAMP

    I’m not mad at Lux for whatever his asking prices is..He put in the “WORK” that was necessary to get to his level.. But all the $$$ sh*t is taking my interest away from me even wanting to see him battle in SM3.. Again I respect him but I LOVE these young hungry battlers too. If Lux never battles again I know the culture will continue grow, no one person stops the show… Sorry, “BATTLE RAP” is at it’s height and if your only battling for SM events then (personally) just don’t care.. I’ve watched great battles with a lot of young guns this year.. Keep it moving Smack.. Just keep focusing on putting together classic match ups..Please.. do not penalize the fans & supporters with ridiculous entry fees. Shout out to SWAVE.. I glad you on the stage..

  • Naylz

    Why doesn’t smack charge us fans like 5 dollars to buy the battles, the logon u make can only be used for your one IP address. 5 dollars isn’t that much. Id pay 5 dollars for a summer madness or a night of main events or any smack card. 5 dollars per card. if he does that he may be able to pay Lux AND make more money for the guys rapping. im just sayin….getting paid from 1000 people watchin the battles live but millions watch it online for free seems kinda backwards.

  • Snack is on smack

    The reason diddy and them came to summer madness was for the legends.. FACT. Plus it was mostly HARLEM battlers. Lets see if they show up this time.. Lets see if every battle gets 1 million views. KOTD World WAr 4 is prolly gonna be better. Lets see Bmagic have a better career than conceited. Lets see any battlers be known more than lux mook T. rex adverb hitman ect.. It WON’T HAPPEN. Smack payin RAPPERS for a CONCERT. How about pay YOUR BATTLER RAPPERS you fuckin clown. I WANTED TO SEE CLASSSICS MAN. Lets see how bad summer madness is gonna be. It prolly will go down south cuz I’m predicting a fight between daylyt and swave sevah

    • clash

      STFU

    • SpiT

      ha ha ha… luxx did have the homelfield advantage….da real test is for luxx to leave his comfort zone….i bet dat nigga gonna look stupid in da D or the Lou..! bet.!!

  • Not You

    ya niggas acting like smack aint got no money to pay these niggas, that money comes from endorsements…and revenue…. nigga making 100,000 JUST OF TICKETS SALES… nigga just wanna keep up with his boy Hannah Montana, trying to live that rich rapper life…its sad cause i was looking for for some classics and i actually went to last year sm2 and it was crazy… im skipping this 1

  • johnmack5533

    This song so hard, lux is worth 50grand he the godfarther of battle rap

  • whatup

    This a dope song. I couldn’t care less about the politics.

  • God Aweful

    Yeah… while yall bugging out about battles too… I want this fucking mixtape.

  • STR8-UP

    The only reason he asking for money like this is because fans label this dudes as the greatest when truth is 3 battle’s or 4 battle’s doesn’t make you great Michael Jordan had to prove his self time an time again some people just be dick riding he had a few good show’s but he choked..flat-out when he stepped on the biggest stage of battle rap Lux Good but the greatest battle rapper ever gotta be Nobody!!!!!!!! cause not one of these dudes show me great-ness,,Talent yes but great Kobe Lebron.. I dont see it You gotta have at least 10 battle of str-8 uncut bars from start to end n never lose an if you don’t you still could have won they have not did it yet but ya’ll keep giving them this title you going to keep gettin the same result’s so that why smack taking the step’s he his cause they tripping big time stay broke for all he care’s cause its writing in stone Smack is the brand you just somebody i pay an when you get outta hand I’ll holla..

    • North

      Do you need 20 battles to realize the skill Lux possesses? The man is the best in this, wise up.

  • Track King Cole

    Look you fans need to be just that FANS. If Loaded Lux thinks he’s worth 40k, then why be mad at him? He should ask for what he thinks he is worth. Also if Smack dont want to pay then people need to respect it and get the fuck out his pockets trying to count his money. You niggas on the internet kill me.

  • Track King Cole

    wow at deleting my post

  • broadyville

    Macmar415 I disagree. LUX came out of a 10 year retirement and gave debatably the best performance every. from a complete choke to completely destroying his opponent by the second round to giving some of the realist grown man barz ever.(very exciting battle) everyone from jay-z to rakim commended and showed respect to not just lux but the battle rap culture and smack/url received the praise and accolades as well. That event is now written in the hiphop history book of legends. With that being said STOP THINKING SMALL TIME… KODT made 100,000,000.00 of pay per view for that cannibus event. I’ll say it again a million. WAKE UP. its money out there and any smart businessman knows this. Off the success of SM2 smack/url could have easy seen that much money or more, which would have enabled them to pay what these guy are now worth. think about it, all the money smack/url makes is base of the battlers performance and if they weren’t worth it smack/url wouldn’t be making the money they are from their events. boxers, athletes, performers all negotiate and earn more money as there stock rises and promoters, and sports franchises pay them because its their job to charge the fan base they bring in. smack/url aren’t getting the most out of this situation because nobody can deny that if they couldn’t make the evens they would buy pay per view, my hommies and I buy pay per view fights all the time just like everyone else, I pay for a sports package from my cable provider and KOTD already showed it can be done, and we still didn’t even mention SPONSERSHIP/ADVERTISEMENT REVINUE. there’s plenty of up and coming urban business that would pay top dollar for people to see their company logo at SM, its the super bowl of battle rap….DAMN…it could also lead to investment opportunities with some of these companies, expand the brand name, because in business the hardest things is to get name recognition and they have that…….let me chill…….anyway, SM3 is nowhere near the magnitude of SM2. smack stock just dropped in a lot of peoples eyes and business worth wise for that. This was his opportunity to literally Jay-Z the sport. We want BARZ AND NAMES. We want Loaded Lux, Hitman, Hollow da don, with JC, Ill Will and Serious Jones, pay that bread expand ya business. be like Russell Simons. Peace.

    • UjustS

      Actually you said they made one hundred million o_0

  • Velli87

    I personally think SMACK standing up to a top teir battle rapper like LUX is vital. We can’t let the players cotrol the mangers decisions. Lux is sounding like one of those greedy sports players who had one good season and thinks he’s bigger than the club now. I always thought Lux was one of those level head people who generally cared about the culture… Geuss he’s all ’bout his money’ like the rest if these niggas.. pun itended

  • Velli87

    I see tat blog a few years back when he was spazzing… Look How it’s all turned out lol

  • Wurk

    It’s a business if smack n them can’t make a return on the investment of paying lux 30k then they taking a loss

  • Tariq Balawi

    Smack you’re making millions of the battling shit that Lux helped building it from the start, I think Lux deserve 40K especially that he is the best battle rapper in url and you know it.
