(AllHipHop News) Murda Mook is considered by many battle rap followers as one of the most legendary figures of the competitive culture, so he is definitely an expert when it comes to jousting with words. The Harlem emcee and fellow Dot Mob representative Dutch Brown sat down with AllHipHop.com to give their take on the recent lyrical back-and-forth between Drake and Meek Mill.
The Hip Hop world was hit with another round in the Drake vs Meek conflict on January 30. Drizzy returned with his latest single “Summertime Sixteen” which included a few shots directed at his MMG rival. However, Meek was able to fire back with a response just minutes later by releasing his 4/4 Part 2 track “War Paint.”
While Mook believes Meek will have a difficult time convincing the general public to back him in the feud, the former Ruff Ryders affiliate still questions Drake’s pen game.
“I still don’t know if [Drake] wrote this sh*t,” says Mook. “My thing is this bro. I’m a rapper. I come from real life rap. You’re not about to let n*ggas write your raps, and just be thinking you can go and say, ‘I’m the nicest rap n*gga.'”
He adds, “I don’t know if he did [have a ghostwriter], but it was just a lot of indication that that happened. I can’t give n*ggas props for saying some sh*t if you didn’t write it.”
Mook and Drake have their own personal history as potential competitors. The two rhymers reportedly came close to battling at King Of The Dot’s “Blackout 5” a year ago. They met face-to-face again at URL’s “Nome 5” last May.
This all came after Mook claimed Drake challenged him to a lyrical contest. Since that time, Mook has called out the OVO founder at the BET Hip-Hop Awards, on a “6 God” remix, and during a freestyle on Hot 97.
Dot Mob’s F*ck The Politics mixtape hosted by DJ Whoo Kid is scheduled for release on February 24.
