freestyles aren't the same when you're not there at the exact moment.......


just like listening to a live techno-house-DnB-etc set after the fact isn't the same...

IMO

sage francis + apathy do an 8 minute nonstop back&forth track on sage's "still sick ... urine trouble"

after 8 mins of the same 8-bar loop:

"without no delay / what's up the tone he hasn't changed it in forever, i thought he was a dj"

Lord Finesse laid down some of the best freestyles I've heard in the mid-90's.

Anyone ever heard Skillz (formerly Mad Skillz) freestyle? I heard a clip from Kay Slay's show from last year where he absolutely rips the 'In Da Club' beat.

^^I was gonna say early 90s Lord Finesse freestyles, but I couldn't remember who's tape it was on (ron g, doowop, clue, premier, one of those 'tape kingz' from the early 90s)

I fucking hate em, and his music. But he is seriously one of the sickest freestylers of all time. There aren't many MCs who can put together the content, flow, and references that em can.
