Top 3 Rap Battles of 2014

2014 was the BIGGEST year for the sub culture that is battle rap. Once only in the far reaches of the basketball court or local park or dank nightclub battle rap has come to the MainStage. Huge million dollar grossing pay per view events and die hard fans have propelled battle rap into the main conversation. 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards featured battle rappers in their cypher segment and Snoop Dogg revealed he has even started a battle rap league. Below are the 3 moments of last year that helped battle rap finally become part of the mainstream conversation.

Murda Mook Vs Loaded Lux

Murda Mook Vs Loaded Lux was a grudge match that has been brewing for a decade. Eminem finally got these 2 in the ring at his Total Slaughter PPV event. During the epic battle Murda Mook reminded the world why we call him murder. He was voted the winner by the judges at the event as well as by the entire battle rap community.

Cassidy Vs Dizaster

Cassidy Vs Dizaster wasn’t the best battle to watch of the year. There are a few more entertaining battles out there (Daylyt Vs Arsonal, Math Hoffa Vs Dizaster to name a few) but this battle was the biggest rap battle pay day to date, Cassidy made around a quarter million dollars for the battle. Dizaster is a battle rapper most known for officially ending Canibus’ career and Cassidy is an established star and the first notable rapper to battle on camera essentially birthing modern day battle rap. Mainstream rap fans and battle fans all rushed to LA and ordered the pay per view showing of this battle. After a few mishaps the battle happened in a small room setting and Cassidy reminded the world why you should NEVER wake a sleeping giant.

Hollow Da Don Vs Loaded Lux

Hollow Da Don Vs Loaded Lux was a special battle. It set off 2014 right. Hollow went on to battle Joe Budden (the biggest battle of both of their careers so far). Loaded Lux was already a huge name but he solidified why he is one of the deadliest battlers of all time. This battle at best is debatable which always makes a classic battle. If you haven’t followed battle rap since Murda Mook battled Serious Jones on Smack DVD years ago, starting with this battle will bring you up to speed on where battle rap has come. It was a lot of great battles last year but these 3 were the most impactful.

The Smoke Box: Wiz Khalifa & The Taylor Gang

B. Real’s finally got the Taylor Gang chief himself in the infamous SmokeBox. In this episode Wiz and B Real discuss life, love and the pursuit of happiness. Spoiler alert, Berner starts complaining about the smoke from the backseat and Wiz Khalifa co signs and says he’s never smokes like this causing B Real to kinda end the interview prematurely. Thanks Berner. Also although Wiz smokes 2 joints at once he still has a way to go before he can be etched in stone on Mt. Kushmore with the forefathers. Enjoy!
