Point taken, and I appreciate the breakdown/criteria that you put forward. I guess I'm just not a Lux fan and don't see the hype around him. Bars, lyricism, structure, delivery, etc...I don't think I'd give any to Lux. Reason for this is exactly like I said before...he sounds like a church preacher. Too many interruptions inside his verses to make the shit flow smoothly. He may as well be reading his verses off a sheet of paper or reciting a verse out of the bible. He speaks at a 100 mph and crams as many words as humanly possible in a bar. As for energy, presence, crowd control, momentum, etc...c'mon...ALL Lux had to do was turn up and din't even had to spit and they would've given him the W. The crowd was all over his nuts and Calicoe was being booed weather he said anything hot or not. I love my home town ( I was born and raised in the Bronx, NY) but they ride Lux's nuts WAY too hard.
