Onyx’s Fredro Starr, who was accompanied by Loaded Lux , recently commented about his long awaited battle against Def Squad representative, Keith Murray.
When asked how he felt the battle went down, the “Slam” emcee described to DJ Vlad his match up as hip hop history and also expressed his opinion that the bout was a good look for the battle rap as a whole.
Fans of the culture as well as emcees in this era usually prefer battles that are acapella rather than having competitors spit to an instrumental. When asked if he felt there was difference battling to a beat, the Onyx member stated that although he prefers to battle without a beat, an emcee must be versatile enough to perform in whatever format that is provided.
Many who were in attendance for the showdown shared the same belief that Fredro Starr was the victor of the battle. After the legendary Loaded Lux told Vlad he felt the same way, Starr humbly stated that it is up for the fans to decide.
What could be called either a somewhat sequel to Sylvester Stallone’s last hit Rocky 5 in his hit movie franchise, or more of a ‘spin-off’ of the boxing series remains to be seen. But judging from the two minutes and forty-three seconds of the first trailer to Ryan Coogler’s Creed I just watched, Rocky fans as well as new to the story will be in for a possible movie hit.
The interesting thing about the creation of this production is that Coogler and rising star Michael B Jordan first teamed up on the Sundance sensation and critically acclaimed hit Fruitvale Station. Coogler, a self admitted fan of the Rocky movie franchise, saw the opportunity to continue the direction of the son of the late Apollo Creed. The film follows Adonis Johnson stepping into the boxing ring, a profession which killed his father in Rocky IV when he fought the Russian fighter Drago. With other boxing movies coming out on Hollywood’s horizon soon like Miles Teller in Bleed for This and Jake Gyllenhaal and 50 Cent in Southpaw, it was Michael B. Jordan’s turn to lace up his gloves as well.
A trainer reminds the young Creed, “Your Daddy died in the ring.” to which Adonis fiercely responds “That got nothin’ to do with me.”
The question is will longtime fans embrace a young black actor who may reboot a well beloved movie, without a backlash based on his skin color? Some examples include reactions to actor John Boyega’s appearance in the trailer for the upcoming new Star Wars movie as a black Stormtrooper. The internet exploded with comments of condemnation for a person of color in a ‘revered’ role.
Looking at the gritty Philadelphia backdrops and imagery, this looks to promise a realistic update to the classic story of an underdog boxer battling his way to the top. Phylicia Rashad appears also as Adoni’s mother, which is sure to add well to the actors’ engery on set. Check out the line from Adonis that fans will get a slight chill from:
“I heard about a third fight between you and Apollo behind close doors, is that true?,” asks the fighter.
