DJ Snake x Beats By Dre. Hear His Story.


If you’ve hit a club or turned on the radio over the course of the last few years, there’s a good chance you’ve been inundated with DJ Snake’s songs. From his 2013 smash, “Turn Down for What,” to his latest hits, “Broken Summer” and “A Different Way,” the Paris-born DJ/producer has certainly made a name for himself in a relatively short amount of time, and it’s become just about impossible to escape his music in 2017.  But like most people who encounter major success, all of this didn’t just happen overnight for DJ Snake. He’s been toiling away at the music thing for many years now, and while he doesn’t grant a ton of interviews to talk about his rise to the top, he decided to share his story in the latest “Above the Noise” spot produced by Beats By Dre.

In it, DJ Snake opens up about what it was like growing up in the part of Paris that you don’t always see on TV. He also speaks about how he got one of his first big breaks, and he touches on why he goes so hard for his city and, to a larger degree, his country when he’s putting together a new song or performing at a live show. The video includes a snippet of “A Different Way,” featuring Lauv, which was released at the end of September. Watch the video to see what DJ Snake is all about and to find out why he believes he’s only just getting started.

Freestyling is an art form that is one of the most beautiful things to witness in hip-hop. The act of spitting off the top is a skill rappers need to showcase when they’re on a radio show, for their fans at a concert or just kicking it with friends. There’s just something about watching your favorite rapper spit witty wordplay, analogies, double entendres and slip in a diss or two. When a rapper is in the zone, crushing one of the game’s most popular beats, it should get any hip-hop fan excited.

 

Who can forget The Diplomats or Eminem ripping the mic during BET’s iconic video mixshow, Rap City: Tha Basement? Or Royce Da 5’9, Mr Porter and Slim Shady on Tim Westwood? How about Jay Z freestyling over Kanye West’s “Grammy Family” on Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex show? There was the iconic The Notorious B.I.G. and Nas freestyle where Method Man introduced both of them to the masses as well. The list can go on and on.  In 2016, there’s been a bunch of freestyles that prove rappers young and old still got it. From rising Brooklyn star Young M.A to West Coast veteran The Game and more, hope you enjoyed some of the best freestyles displays of yesteryear.
