Loaded Lux Confirms Battle with Hollow Da Don in the UW Battle League [News]
Harlem, NY – On October 13th Loaded Lux confirmed that he would be stepping back in the ring for his final battle, with Queens New York rapper Hollow Da Don. The talk surrounding these two getting it on has been a series of back and forth diss tracks, call out blogs and speculation on what league should host the battle. It was finally decided that they would battle in the UW Battle League which is run by battle rapper Arsonal. Lux and Hollow were supposed to battle at the SMACK/URL’s Summer Madness 3 event, but because of a disagreement he had with SMACK/URL over money it never went down. It’s been reported that Loaded Lux wanted $40,000 for the battle.
Hit the jump to see what Lux had to say in a recent interview about the whole situation.
“This is a business and what battle rappers do is almost phenomenal. A recording artist can make hundreds of thousands of dollars off one song, doing the same show over and over, night after night and get royalties. Let a battle rapper repeat a bar, let alone a whole verse, he gets booed. We have to bring new material every time. Not only that, we have to memorize it and be on our toes for rebuttals. We just make it look easy, but it’s not. The fact is we had others that wanted to promote the battle, but we wanted to show loyalty to URL. That is our family. I must mention that through all of this, Hollow was on point with the revenue potential of a battle between us. He’s a businessman. We couldn’t get URL to see it. As the story goes, scared money don’t make money.” – Loaded Lux
The battle is set to take place February 2014.
