5. Iron Solomon vs. Murda Mook
Winner: Murda Mook
SMACK / URL's Summer Madness 2 event last year at New York City's Webster Hall certainly brought out the hometown heavyweights. Manhattan's Iron Solomon and Harlem's Murda Mook went nose to nose, throwing one cocaine allegation after another at each other for nearly an hour. The crowd, which included Busta Rhymes, Diddy, and Q-Tip, fell all over each other as Solomon and Mook broke down each others' battle styles, puffed-up pasts, and the sexual exploits of their wives-for the first half of the battle, it was evenly matched.
In time, the blood-thirsty audience began to tune out Iron Solomon's extremely-wordy wordplay about every member of Mook's crew, and fully bought into Mook's WWE stunts-like talking to Solomon as Trayvon Martin would to George Zimmermann, finishing by pouring Skittles on the ground.
If Mook could have dropped his mic, he would have but it was a lavalier wired under his shirt, which resulted in some awkward audio-he started saying his goodbyes to everyone on the stage at the same time as Solomon was doing his last round. Solomon stopped midway, and while he denied any cocaine claims, he acknowledged that he took the L that night.
