While on the Angryfans Radio podcast, SMACK co-founder Eric Beasley said he understands the motivation for Murda Mook andLoaded Lux to take their rematch to Eminem’s Total Slaughter event.  

When asked about his prediction of how the battle itself will be presented, Beasley alluded to a lack of information about the format itself. 

“It’s kind of hard to make that call because the battle hasn’t happened yet,” he said. “We don’t know how the battle will be. We don’t know if it’s gonna be a good battle. We don’t know if it’s gonna be bad battle. We don’t know if they’re doing three minute rounds, five minute rounds. We don’t know yet. It’s kind of hard to determine and say that, ‘Aw man, because it’s not on URL it’s not gonna be a good battle.’ But I will say this, I don’t know if it will have that authentic feel…The flipside of that is somebody’s out here waving 30 racks in front of you and you have a family, I understand…I understand that they have opportunities and obligations to their families. They have to jump on those opportunities when they present themselves. I’m curious to see how it turns out and if it’s something that they continue to do if it doesn’t work.” 

Speaking with Angryfans, Beasley also detailed the recent hike in fees for top-tier battlers, why he thinks on-demand streaming will never be a sustainable model for Battle Rap revenue and the prevalence of battlers ducking matches.
