IBR on Hannibal Boxing

“He calls his ascension “The Takeover,” a title that brings to mind fellow Brooklynite, Jay-Z, whose own “Takeover” also claimed an industry. Repeated ad nauseum the term loses its appeal, and what catchphrase isn’t beaten to death in “the big drama show?” But it isn’t without its charm. “The Takeover” sounds aggressive, more violent than “ascension” or “arrival”; it conjures thoughts of usurping force, a hostile wresting of power.”
