We dare to watch this video and not have “You gon’ get this work work work work work” stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
Loaded Lux, famed battle rapper turned aspiring solo artist, hit pay dirt with his impromptu (now trademark) line, “You gon’ get this work!” during his Summer Madness 2 joust against Calicoe in August 2012. The saying even became infamous (and catchy) enough for JAY Z to log on to his seldom-used Twitter account.
“ya’ll gonna get this work” haaaaaa.

Currently promoting his Beloved 2 release, it was a no-brainer for Lux to jump on Rihanna‘s current infectious single, “Work.” With a clever freestyle in time for Valentine’s Day and a video featuring his son, family and friends having fun inside a studio, it’s refreshing to see the lighter side of the often serious artist.
