This week, there have been quite a lot of freestyles from known and unknown artists popping up. Let’s dive right into it.
Firstly, famous London DJ Tim Westwood unveiled a couple of unreleased freestyles he apparently had been holding on to for a minute. Westwood who is known for having the hottest emcees at the moment prove their skills in his studio apparently was just holding on to two offerings: one from Jay-Z and the other from Wu Tang Clan founding member, Method Man.
The Method Man freestyle was during his Tical era, in 1995, when he was marketing the album. That means this freestyle is 20 years old (it’s okay if you feel old, I had a Fred Sanford moment myself). The star of this freestyle is Meth’s godly, GODLY, flow. It’s as if the rhyme melts into every crack and crevice of the track.
This was followed by Westwood releasing another freestyle in the vault, unearthing a previously unheard Jay-Z freestyle from 1999. Jay-Z fans will recognized refurbished lines from Jay’s late 90’s hit “Do It Again (Put Your Hands Up),” but it’s still great to hear that old-school Jay, before he became a family man. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
Lastly, Jadakiss visited the Sway in the Morning show, doing the rounds for his new upcoming album “Top 5 Dead or Alive,” scheduled for Nov. 20. There was a lot to talk about including ghostwriting, artistry, and authenticity. Of course he couldn’t leave without taking a swipe at the mic.
