    Any valid points???

      Okay, I will be as unbiased as possible in my insights towards this. Now first off all, I understand business, I have a Masters in Marketing, Bachelors in Business and I have been directly involved with the scene for over 15+ years. Aside from that, I am a die hard URLtv fan, and have converted many people to become the same. I am in the category of those who honestly respect Lux for his PAST, but honestly I do not see the hype over him, especially basing it off a very poor performance overall (granted a memorable third round) based off a single expression.. nothing in his performance was groundbreaking or creative and his choke and lack of effort to correct it (freestyle, etc) shows he is not worth that single investment. As far as Summer Madness… Unlike trolls and the last fan reaction, I will not make an opinion on a card or event that has yet to happen. Who fucking cares about buildup? Just put out great battles… Go back to the drawing board, this 15- $20,000 to perform rounds is ludicrous and that price increased too high too fast. Just as inflation can break an economy, it will do the same to this culture if it’s not controlled. Inflation of funds, ego’s, talent, etc.. The trolls are controlling more of this culture now than the minds behind it and UrlTv is allowing one insignificant individual (in the larger purpose of this) place a black cloud over this movement. Ignore the comments, reactions, trolls, fan videos, and even fucking Lux. Just go back to square one. It’s not about the names YOU (URLTV) made it that way by CONSISTENTLY promoting the same faces over, and over, and over, and over on this platform. You put your foots in your own mouths and created this. So take the shit back to the root. Ignore everything on the outside, and just put out quality content. People will watch as they did before. Re-write the rules to this shit.

        Opinion taken.

        I’m a business owner myself. An advertising agency.

        If I were Lux, I would ask for the same. SMACK/URLtv battle rappers are the products and brands they are selling. They are making revenue off of their talents and performances. They do not own them. They are free agents. As an individual, you must know your worth. For example, T-Rex is more valuable than K-Shine. Not by talent, but monetarily. Battles by T-Rex bring a consistent amount of views, interviews, comments etc. Therefore, no matter how repetitive he is with his material, his performance satisfies the fans. K-shine, a little less. So Rex should be paid more, because the return is more.

        Lux is asking for $40k because he is worth that much. He is considered the most talented battle rapper, has the most views in a single battle and has changed the game. Furthermore, there is a lot of publicity and anticipation to be seen in a battle again with Hollow who is another valued MC.

        Lux single-handedly changed the direction of where the battles have gone in the last year with the funeral and preacher theme, as an example. On top of that, he is the only MC to put together a structured battle that was nearly 100% tailored to Calicoe. Other MCs say a few bars that are personal to their opponent and the rest are made up jokes and gun bars.

        Does URLtv have the money to pay Lux? Maybe, maybe not. If they do, they are making a mistake and will be missing out on possibly the best battle in history. If they don’t, there are other ways to raise money to pay the MCs. For example, if URLtv pays him $20k for the SM3 night, the remaining $20k can come from the revenue of YouTube views, opportunities to collaborate on memorabilia, a collector’s DVD (which could contain bonus material and battles not available to YouTube), donations… the list goes on.

        Yes, URLtv consistently promotes the same faces. It’s because of their fan base and the promotional effort that goes with it. It’s just like WrestleMania. Only those who will sell the tickets and draw the greatest Pay Per View purchases will appear on the card.

        “Bars Over Names” won’t surpass the previous SM successes. For example, Chilla Jones Vs JC is one of the best battles to have pure bars, and it’s success is average at best. It’s a popularity contest at the end of the day. That’s the result of the path that URLtv has taken with how they shaped their business. It’s no longer a platform for talented MCs to have a bar fest.

        Don’t get me wrong, this SM3 card can turn out to be the most successful, but it’s clearly a risky move that could have severe repercussions.

        I agree with some of what you posted though.

  • FAMP

    There are some niggas who no one cares what they think.. Ladies and Gents.. (drum roll)…….. “here is one”.. Correction : You’ve expressed that you don’t like REX but really … REX killed DIZ.. DIZ was so dam terrible that he brought down the integrity of that whole battle… Plus u lightweight “FAGGISH”.

  • logan

    maybe if you stopped saying the word nigga ever 4 words and read loaded lux’s explanation to his absence from SM3, he explains the business opportunities that would create a revenue of $600,000 so the $40,000 was feasible

    In short, Lux deserves the money if not for his bars but for contribution to the art. He has provided classic performances including his last one which did wonders for URL as well as the battle rap in general in terms of mainstream popularity

    Lux has also, (without much credit.. anywhere) contributed much of the talent currently at the pinnacle of the art. His Lion’s Den platform was where names like Charlie Clips, Aye Verb and Arsonal cut their teeth and rose to prominence, particularly Clips with a certified classic performance Against Tay Rock. and Arsonal, who has in a number of interviews cited Lux’s positive influence over his career..

    In sum , Lux definitely deserves the fee he’s asking for as he, more than most, has helped put this culture in the great position it find itself in with classic performances and a shrewd eye for talent that has delivered some of the big names the dominate the art.

    SMACK has made a decision that he is willing to deal with no matter what happens. If it fails then SMACK can turn around and make another event with bigger names and everyone will forget what happened. That’s just how people are. SMACK has successfully caused an uproar and now everyone wants to see if the matchups will be booboo or if SMACK was actually right. Regardless of all this crying about the matchups, people are still going to watch. If it bombs but then smack turns around 2 months later and puts together an event with fan favorites then what? We won’t give it views? FOH stop whining and just see what happens. If you’re a fan of the culture then be a fan of the culture and appreciate bars no matter who spits them. If the bars are trash then let them be trash. Top tier cats have spit some garbage but they still get views. If SM3 turns out aight then SMACK will look like a genius. If you want to make it an issue about respect then respect the art and the culture. SMACK runs his business as he sees fit. Its our fault as fans that its gotten this way. Battlers used to put up their own cash to battle and winner took the bread. Bet if it were winner took the dough battlers would step their game up. Since we made it a popularity contest the battles are biased. If we still had 3 judges that had respect in the culture to judge battles then this battle scene would be different and some dudes would be exposed for doodoo rounds.
