What a difference a day makes.
Before URL's "Born Legacy 3," to a large number of battle fans, Nu Jurzy Twork was nothing more than a guy getting a PG battle who had a funny name. After BL3, nobody's laughing anymore.
After his battle against Dougy, Twork's buzz is at a sky-high level, delivering a well-received performance that may have put him on the path to battle rap superstardom. Judge for yourself here.
BattleRap.com's Jackson Yates summed up how Twork's performance changed preconceived notions about him in his recap of BL3 saying,
"I have to admit, I was unfamiliar with Twork before BL3, and I was understandably apprehensive about his name. Imagine how surprised I was when I found out he was dead nice a few bars into his first round versus Dougy. He started calmly and quickly transitioned into a barking machine gun-style punchline style that was extremely unpredictable and resulted in dozens of haymakers. The cleverness of his material shocked the room, and he needs another URL battle ASAP."
We reached out to Twork for one of our 20 questions interviews, and while he kept his responses short, they still spoke volumes, and give us some insight into the man who may very well become URL's next top tier emcee.
