Here’s what LOADED LUX, had to say about his OWN potential in 2013.
“I expect to be the Floyd Mayweather of the culture by bringing money to the game,” Lux continued. “As Shaq would say, ‘everybody eats.’ If you don’t think big, you’ll stay small. I expect to go down in Battle Rap history as the ‘godfather of the culture.’ They say styles make fights. If true, then I expect that this will be the biggest and most entertaining battle in history.”
