EXCLUSIVE: Loaded Lux Speaks On Math Hoffa/Serius Jones Fight + Lupe Shout Out For 1st Time


(AllHipHop News) Last night, The nominees and honorees at the 2013 Global Spin Awards were announced by a panel which included Sway Calloway, Grandmaster Flash, Def Jam Executive Vice President Shawn “Pecas” Costner and DJ Drama.

Loaded Lux was in attendance and spoke EXCLUSIVELY to AllHipHop about his connection to the DJ culture, the recent fight at SMACK/URL’s Summer Madness 3 and Lupe Fiasco calling him one of the greatest rappers alive.

AllHipHop: The Global Spin Awards is the first award show for the DJ’s. What is your connection to the DJ culture?

Loaded Lux: Well you got to know at this point we started with the MC rocking the crowd. But between an MC and the DJ it was a one-two just in terms of moving and keeping the people involved. The MC is the master of ceremonies, but the DJ, being that vessel to the people right now, is everything, The DJ is still a very significant and essential piece to the game. Without the DJ, you won’t rock the crowd. Right now the DJ has the pulse of the people.

Recently you were very critical about Smack/URL’s Summer Madness 3. As you know there was a physical altercation between Math Hoffa and Serius Jones. What is your reaction to that and how do you feel about battle rap getting physical? It does get pretty aggressive.

Yeah it does, but it’s more mental than physical but at the same time we cant build and destroy. These things happen. There’s a lot of testosterone in battle rap and sometimes it boils over. But the main thing is that the consumer, the critic and all audiences need to keep in mind that this culture needs to keep building. We always trying to do things in a productive manner to keep the culture. So we cant always glorify elements that seep over into the culture.

Lupe recently released a song “Peace of Paper/Cup of Jayzus” and said ‘Me and Lux got the same points, the greatest rappers are tied’. Jay Z also tweet out ‘you gon get this work’ after your epic battle with Calicoe on Summer Madness 2. How do you feel to get recognized by MC’s of that caliber.

Overwhelming. Inexplicable. I cant even give you anything to equate to what that is. I’m just honoered and that was fuel to the fire. Also a breadcrumb to let me know to keep going and doing what matters.

  • Eli Pinilla

    This a short ass interview…..yall interview him at the airport or some shit?!?!?!?

    • lmao for real…like them niggaz was washing they’re hands in a bathroom and sparked up a quick convo.

      • Eli Pinilla

        Lux prolly work part time luggage claim at laguardia lol

      • I Think Lux gets Waaaaaaaaay too much credit…Yeah he had a hell of a Battle with Calicoe, but the only way he was able to put on such a show is because Cal was his opponent and he used that ammo…i can’t see him having another standout battle like that because nothin prior to it was Great…and he tried to Milk it for 40k??? FOH

      • Eli Pinilla

        He just been doin it for a grip now. Funny shit aside, hes had classic battles with mook serious jones and the like. He did it in the pool bars and them tiny ass rooms. I think the battlers of today are much nicer than they were 10 plus years ago, but lux was ahead of his time then and is just now around people that can give h im problems….he should battle hollow da don or conceited.

      • I couldnt get into the mook battle…i guess i cant appreciate the old school style of battling…even tho Lux put him on, that nigga Arsonal…a fuckin Problem!!! I like Ars, Dna, Calico, and T Rex as in the top dogs, for laughs you cant go wrong with Concieted or Hollow Da Don…that young dude outta Detroit Ill Will is gonna be a monster too…i dont really like serious jones too much either…Math is Dope…O Red,X Factor, Tsu Surf…even K Shine lately…Charlie Clips and Goodz dope…Mook is Highly Overrated to Me as well, i watched J Millz Cook him. Oh and Hitman Holla was a beast too…i like the new battle rappers and a few old heads i guess, but outside of that 3rd verse on Cal i dont see where he was unbeatable lol

      • Eli Pinilla

        I used to work with a dude back in the day that swore by lux. Felt he was the greatest ever type shit. The nggz that f*ck with lux f*ck with em heavy….I think conceited and hollow are the top 2 right now. Ars is cool, but I seen him take some l’s. Tsu tight too….I never liked mook either. Serious has his moments. He roasted jin…..but battle rap as a whole has elevated. These dudes say shit some times that be driving my head crazy.

      • I Like Ars because even when he’s taken a L, we can never say that he didn’t show up…he’s never gave a bad performance in my opinion. I gotta check out that Jin and Serious Battle because i did hear things about it…Cons and Hitman Let me down with they’re battle the other day, i was like “this the battle that Hitman was Trippin About, He Really Wanted Someone to See This Performance???” I Understood why Smack and Beasley was getting hot because they paying dudes and they were giving Lackluster Performances then Say “It don’t Matter, I’m Still Getting Paid” I Likes that Tsu and Con Battle Though…But Your Right, The Level That the Battle Rappers Are On Now Is Crazy…One Of The First Battles of the New Regine that I Was Watching The Dude Was Talking about hoe DNA’s mom is Retarded…I Was Like “Yo These Dudes Are F*ckin Ruthless!!!” then Realized that they all are like that lol…But Ars has to be the Rudest Ever Lol…Him and Charlie Clips had a Dope Battle

      • scullyson

        Yeah Arsenal went in on Math imo…

      • soyhiphop

        math won that battle tho

      • LaurynHernandex

        You lost me at math is dope

      • TaTa_U

        Landsliiide…THAT’s For CASKETS… you know I kill Everything in my bio-hazard! (Hazardous… or has it!)
        Lux the G.O.A.T. of that battle shit!

      • Thats An Opinion

      • TaTa_U

        Yes, it is… It’s an opinion of Lux shared by more people in the Battle culture than of any other battle MC.
        But as Lux said “Legendary is just something you gotta let fans decide”

      • LaurynHernandex

        He believes he’s worth 40 in his dumb ass mind because
        1.It was his first battle in years
        2.He was in NY infront of Diddy,Busta and Q tip
        3.He battled Mr Summer madness Calicoe
        4.He had decent rounds and a great thrid that he took from Ayeverb

        He needs to realize
        1.He’s already out the box since cal and won’t be as in demand
        2.He’s talked too much ppl are starting to want him to get his ass kicked
        3.A philipino rapper got 9,000,000 views each battle higher than arsonal and that shows lux isn’t all that

      • His beliefs are solid, maybe not as solid as he believes, but he has to make the most off that push, since he “REALIZES” the chances of getting another one are very slim.

      • LaurynHernandex

        YEah, he’s maybe worth 15,000 or 20,000 if he writes something great,but I’d pay 50,000 to someone whos sold a record

      • His record with Method Man? was wack, but artists don’t make it to development off sales alone, in the age of 360 deals,shows count, and Lux packs them in.

        With the right A&R/Push, he’ll make it, but DNA should as well.

      • LaurynHernandex

        I highly doubt anyone off of URL or any rap league will blow up. Murda Mook has gone the farthest off of anyone in the URL in terms of career besides Jae Millz. A lot of guys don’t realize that off beat you can have pauses and dictate your flow and come up with amazng shit,but on beat it becomes about how well you can flow and then they have the added pressure of sounding super amazing on beat as they do off beat.

      • DNA ripped it on beat.

        It is different, harder with no beat, IMHO.

      • LaurynHernandex

        Well,DNA was booed in front of Eminem I don’t see him leaving battle ra ever,but you know it’s like a fad I think the battle scene is dying down. Even arsonal isn’t getting views now.It’s about time a new genre started anyway every 25 years a new one comes out I expect hip hop to become like disco soon

      • Rap will be like Disco, it is now.

        It takes more than skill to get into artist development. The complete package, youtube (Vevo) , book signings, tours,etc.

        360 deals = Reebok, SuperBowl, Staples Center, Boxing entrances, video games, clothing, etc.

        You have to come with the complete package, including fan base. Battle rap has always been an essential, even main element of Hip Hop.

        “They can’t write a song, so their careers won’t last long! We told the critics your opinion is Bull, same time Eric B & Rakim dropped Paid N Full”…KRS – Outta Here

        They said KRS could only battle, even though he hadn’t battled in so long, PM Dawn & Nelly tried to diss him….both with disastrous results.

        Battle rappers can write, only in this new age, of YMCMB popcorn RAP, will you find rappers who can’t battle.

        ‘Chet, even Eminem could battle & fugg around, he’d roast damn near everyone in the Top 10….although that depend’s on who’s Top 10 it is.

      • LaurynHernandex

        KRS is said to have lost to Nelly by the majority,Eminem is trash in my opinion & I never heard a rap diss other than Hit Em Up that made me feel somethign would happen so I don’t care for URL or Rap anymore to tell you the truth it’s all boring to me haha

      • KRS lost? because the industry got behind Nelly for a big push, but lyrically? even Nelly knows that KRS made him mashed potato.

        Em is garbage now,but when he first dropped, he was on Fiyah!

      • TaTa_U

        Too… Too… Too much hatin going on for you against Lux… That much hate is unhealthy

      • LaurynHernandex

        He deserves hate. He forgets his whole verse and doesn’t get booed cause he’s in NY getting dick rode and is saying zoophilia rap bars. He’s a lame and his music trash.

      • Kyle Meta4ce

        The only reason that garbage ass fliptop dude got 9 million views is because fliptop gets zerg rushed by the whole country…they have nothing else and don’t matter to anybody else.

      • LaurynHernandex

        Doesn’t matter on your emotions and feelings. Views bring money. I’d rather have chief keef than lux he’s show to bring people out lux isn’t as big as he thinks. Shit,I’d rather have charlie bit my finger than lux on a card more money. I don’t care about rap that much yet alone rap without a beat and chorus.

    • dehova

      Probably in the showers or by the urinal!

  • Donny P

    Fukk Math Hoeffa

  • don king

    ey everybody says math hoffa fucked sm3 up n almost destroyed battle rap with his punch. but i have a question 4 u guys: what else do they talk about? i mean if it was a great show till the fight, why does nobody talk bout it? where were the great battles? cause that fight happened at the end. i think without this fight sm3 would have been out of our minds already! dont get me wrong, it was still a fuckin bitch move n hoffa should b ashamed!!! but if that is the only thing even those battlerappers talk about, it might covers up how wack sm3 was in general.

    • I Agree…Can’t Name One Battle That Was Talked About From That Entire SM3 Card

    • Math didn’t put a mark on Serious, in fact, he didn’t even drop him with the sucka punch, he had to push him down….the only thing staying down off that punch…..is Math’s career.

        Yeah, he better get used to mickey d’s dollar menu. I know his dumb ass doesn’t have nay other skills. Can’t read,write & dropped out 10th grade.

  • Brian Bitch Why?

    Math is bogus for the shit

  • LaurynHernandex

    Math hoffa likes trannies!

  • scullyson

    Arsenal let loose on math.

  • dehova

    Is this the first time AHH has mentioned anything about SM3? Shame on you! Wasting time talking shit about Drake and Rhianna instead. Anyway, I feel Math Hoffa has mental issue. Before he threw the punch he paused, looked and then punched the man. In his blog and in the Vlad TV thing I seen him do, he came off as a chump. Hate to say that about him cause I’d previously liked the presentation of himself he put out there but in a way I’m glad cause. as a battle rapper, he’s wack!
