This was brought up on RM and in the screening and I'm starting to think it's pretty on-point. In these two battles Mook and DNA are about the same age, 18. Even though it's two different eras of acapella battling, they're both kind of looked at as prodigies. The difference is DNA has a little bit more footage (Mook has like 10 and DNA seems to have like twice that between GT, Smack and Time is Money) and is as disliked as he is liked. Mook on the other hand seems to have found his way into the "legend" category by 26 or so. Why is that? Are they far apart in skill level? Mook arguably lost almost every filmed battle except Yung Hot and Weeze and DNA arguably lost the majority of his Smack battles, too. But Mook had potential and eventually spazzed on Yung Hot. People recognized that, I remember. What about DNA, though? Are we too hard on the kid and forget he's getting better and better? Is it fan bias off some extra shit that has nothing to with his rhymes? Or is he legitimately as bad as a lot of people, me formerly being one of them, feel?
