    lol. why so angry mydude? I mean, I agree it was a huge battle, but in terms of signficance, "classic-ness", etc., I'd say Mook/Lux, and Mook/Jones are right on par with it.

    It was obviously difficult to pick just 6 battles from the 2000s, but thats all the layout would allow, and at least both those dudes are gonna be in the book with their own biography.

    o yea, neither of these guys are in the book and the footage of this never got released but the jay-z vs dmx battle was probably a classic.

    Fuck, another good suggestion. I'll see what I can do, I fully admit this may not be the "perfect" list (though I'd argue no list would be perfect no matter what it looked like), but I do think its incredibly solid. As with everything else thats been put in the book thus far, I'm open to any and all suggestions.

    In terms of the 2000s I'm actually leaning towards taking out Illmac vs. Saurus before any of the rest.

    lol fair enough. I think as a fan I actually prefer Mook/Millz to Mook/Lux, I was just thinking in terms of overall significance and impact Mook/Lux was the bigger battle. Though its essentially 1A and 1B imo, whichever order you put them in.

    Also, to JapJesus. I'd be perfectly fine with putting Craig G/Supernat ahead of Hobo/Heiroglyphics, but to be fair I just wanted to try and get a big west coast battle on there, as they were all NY battles on the list up to that point.

    I see. I think Juice vs Supernat happened after that battle for some reason? Im pretty sure it didn't happen in 95. I wanna say 99 maybe even 2000? That would be the perfect bookend battle imo

    Yea?...I'd heard different dates from 94 all the way up to 99. I wasn't certain, but maybe the one I most commonly saw was 95, or the one I remembered last or something. The dates on all the rest should be correct.

    If you are right I'll obviously correct it.

    I know it went down at the Wake Up Show 9th Anniversary show and that CD was released in late 99, meaning it was 98 at the absolute earliest.

    Why are people mentioning the Pass vs Hollow battle? Pass is good but he obviously didn't even come hungry for this battle. You could totally tell.
