Bad Meets Evil

Royce, Eminem

I won’t die, I’m never leavin’
I pledge allegiance to forever breathin’
-Royce                                  

I’m crazy excited to post this throwback freestyle from Eminem and Royce Da 5’9′,’ who used to be collectively dubbed “Bad Meets Evil.”  

Slim Shady and Nickle Nine spit quotables galore for 12 minutes, I can barely keep up.

In my opinion, Royce > Em during this particular freestyle. What say ye?

Shouts to the homie Sam C of TSS for liberating this joint, Enjoy!

New Jay-Z Freestyle

People keep talkin bout ‘Hov, take it back’

I’m doin’ better than before, why would I do that?

Spotted this “video” (I use that term loosely) at Kevin Nottingham, it’s from Sean Carter’s performance Friday night in Vegas.

The rhymes are supposedly an excerpt from the intro to Hov’s long-awaited Blueprint 3, though I can’t confirm that just yet. He takes jabs at former Roc-A-Fella partner Dame Dash, former partner-in-rhyme Jaz-O, and even West coaster Game.

Hovi’s home, BP3 is scheduled for a September 11th release date. Enjoy!

Vintage Wu-Tang Freestyle

Wu-Tang

With Wu-Tang Clan’s Chamber Music dropping todaywhich RZA notes is “not a Wu-Tang Clan album – but it’s pretty close,” I dug up this vintage Wu freestyle from ’93 on Stanford, CA radio station KZSU.

Though only Method Man, Ghostface and Masta Killa hop on the mic, it’s a lesson in what constitutes a true cypher – not a BlackBerry-assisted pre-written “freestyle” that we see too often today. This is right around the time of “Protect Ya Neck” and Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), so you already know the caliber of rhymes to expect.

Download the freestyle below to show the children what real hip-hop is and pick up your copy of Chamber Music here, Enjoy!

Corleone Hold the Throne

null

Out with the old, in with the new. That’s the perfect way to describe my migration from Blogger to WordPress and this brand new blog. You may know me from my old site, or you may not know me at all, but either way I appreciate you hopping on board for my new endeavor. Please hit me up with a comment or e-mail to let me know what you think of the new look.

I figured with my first post I’d explain my inspiration for the new direction. Taking a page from the book of Harlem-bred Lamont “Big L” Coleman, one of history’s best lyricists, I borrowed a lyric for my blog name from his “98 Freestyle” from Stretch & Bobbito’s radio show (veteran heads remember that one).

The cut originally appeared on L’s Big Picture which he was recording when he was murdered. Luckily, for hip-hop fans, he left a shitload of a capellas and freestyles that we can now rock for all eternity.

Why not start off with a bang? I got a true gem here, a vinyl-only pressing of Big L’s Harlem’s Finest: A Freestyle History Vol. 1 & 2. Here you’ll find the full-length “98 Freestyle” among more hot fiyah (no Dylan) than you can fathom.

Bear with me as I’m still getting used to WP. Good looks on checking in, Enjoy!
