It’s no secret that Drake enjoys battle rap, and he’s made it clear over his decade-long career that he values the genre. Drake was in the middle of a planned showdown with battle rap icon Murda Mook in 2015, but nothing came of it as Drake became a megastar.
Despite being one of the most well-known rappers on the globe, the 6 God still finds time to participate in the underground fight rap scene. Drake shared a photo of himself and Murda Mook laughing on Instagram on Sunday (June 13), leaving battle rap fans disappointed that the clash never went place.
Drake arrived by the URL NOME XI battle rap event on Saturday (June 10) and contributed $50,000 to the main event battle between Geechi Gotti and Rum Nitty. The moment Drake ran into Mook backstage during the event, though, was the one that had everyone talking. But the reunion was all about good, as the rappers exchanged a few laughs and reminisced on what would have happened if they had fought in 2015.
Mook rushed to Instagram to post the shot, along with a post explaining why the fight with Drake never went place.
Like I told you @champagnepapi ….whoever “suggested” for u not to actually go thru with our battle….. I hope you pay them handsomely! 😂😂😂 #TheySavedAGOAT #FRIENDLYHUMOR,” Murda Mook wrote in the caption.
Despite the fact that the war between Drake and Murda Mook appears to be over, the battle rap community is still waiting for Drizzy to put his bars to the test. Drake, on the other hand, may be content to work behind the scenes to help shape the culture.
Drake signed a multi-year contract with Caffeine in February 2020 to help deliver the Ultimate Rap League to audiences all around the world. In collaboration with URL, the world’s largest battle rap platform, Caffeine will co-produce and live stream rap bouts.
“I’ve always loved URL and admired what Smack and his team have been able to create,” At the moment, Drake stated. “It just wasn’t easily accessible. It’s exciting to be in a position where I’m able to bring Caffeine to the table and help provide URL with the tools they need to elevate the viewing experience and make it more accessible to fans.”
