 Mook is currently considered a living ‘legend’ in the modern battle rap world, having influenced almost all of the Ultimate Rap League. Outside of S.M.A.C.K. he also made a brief appearance on MTV2’s Monday Night Fight Klub where he battled against up-and-coming rappers such as Verse, Cardi aka. Deuce One, and most notably French Montana, who went under the name Young French at the time. His next battles were a return to SMACK/URL to battle Iron Solomon on the iconic Summer Madness 2, and a rematch against Loaded Lux on fuse TV’s Total Slaughter battle event. His most recent battle was a 2on2 match against T-Top and Brizz Rawsteen (Mook paired up with Calicoe) at U.R.L’s Summer Impact Reloaded event. The battle ended during the first round due to altercations. Mook’s debut album Murder He Wrote was released under Black Face Ent. in late 2007. He has released and been featured on many New York mixtapes since. In 2012, Mook appeared on the Ruff Ryders Cypher of the BET Hip Hop Awards. 

The History

— How it all began

John Ancrum, better known by his stage names Murda Mook and Mook, is an American rapper based out of Harlem, New York. He is a veteran of East-Coast rap battles and has influenced the majority of modern battle rappers today. Alongside Troy “Smack White” Mitchell, he grew in popularity among fans of street hip-hop DVDs due to his delivery, crowd control, bars, and consistency. He is considered a legend and a flag bearer for the primary era of battle rap. Murda Mook began his career as a battle rapper, facing well-known Harlem rappers such as T-Rex and Loaded Lux.

His breakthrough performance was featured on the 2002 S.M.A.C.K DVD against Jae Millz, who had recently battled E. Ness, and was broadcast on MTV’s Making the Band. The combination of these two rappers, both with growing followings at the time, resulted in one of the most influential rap battles of all time. Mook later faced rappers such as Party Arty, Serius Jones, and Philly-native Young Hot in 2008.

He is a founding member of the Harlem-based rap group Dot Mob, consisting of Mook, his cousin T-Rex, and Dutch Brown, affiliated with A & R Louie Da 13th. Former members included NymLo (known as NymDot at the time) and K-Shine. Associates include Watts rapper Daylyt, Pittsburgh rapper Real Deal, Baltimore rapper Tay Roc, and hype-man/producer Sho Gotti.

Aliter homines, aliter philosophos loqui putas oportere? Sin aliud quid voles, postea. Mihi enim satis est, ipsis non satis. Negat enim summo bono afferre incrementum diem. Quod ea non occurrentia fingunt, vincunt Aristonem.
