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.

Tyga gives us a “Behind The Scenes” look at his new visual featuring The Game. The track titled, “Switch Lanes” comes fresh off of T-Rawww’s latest mixtape Well Done 3. Judging by the clip I’m sure that the video will be consistent with the Young Money rapper’s usual West Coast feel.

Game – No More Fun & Games (Sleeping Dogs Remix).


Check out The Game’s brand new video for “No More Fun and Games”, inspired by the videogame Sleeping Dogs™ and produced by Complex.

The Game ft. Tyler The Creator & Lil Wayne – Martian vs. Goblins (Official Video).


The song “Martians vs. Goblins” has been on constant spin for months in my car.  The deep bass and over the top lyrics seem to be a hit with whoever rides shotgun, but the video that dropped yesterday is an entirely different animal.  Check the method below, and be impressed.

Game’s R.E.D. Album Debut’s At Number 1.


After more delays than a space shuttle launch, Compton rapper the Game will finally have his reward next week when his endlessly pushed-back fourth effort, The R.E.D. Album, debuts at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. According to figures provided by SoundScan, the disc moved just under 98,000 copies, enough to grab the top spot but well below the first-week figures for his 2008 album LAX, which opened with 239,000 in sales.  Either way, it’s just enough to beat out Jay-Z and Kanye West’s Watch the Throne, which drops to #2 in its third week, as sales dove 47 percent to 94,000 for a three-week total just north of 707,000.

Chris Brown’s Cousins Chase Down Frank Ocean.


I do my best not to help stimulate hip hop beef, or draw too much attention to it on the blog… BUT this one was a little too much for me to ignore.  Odd Future’s own Frank Ocean went off on Chris brown for seemingly no reason recently on twitter after Chris Brown complimented him.  What ensued was a back and forth between Brown, Tyler The Creator, and Frank Ocean that was eventually broken up by none other than The Game (random.)  But although the argument may have ended there, I’m getting the feeling things are just heating up.  More below.

Now, I have to admit, that Chris Brown doesn’t exactly strike me as the most gangsta of the child star R&B singers on the planet, however, this doesn’t mean that his family won’t go hard.  From the description of a video that surfaced recently, Frank Ocean allegedly ran after being confronted by Chris Brown.  But weather that’s true or not remains to be seen.  What the video actually shows however is Frank Ocean driving away from who are reported to be Chris Browns cousin.  TO ME, by the looks of things in the video combined with  knowing a bit of background on the Odd Future crew, I don’t think this is the end of it at all.  And who knows, if this is the next hip hop beef to spill over from word to action, Chris Brown may have the upper hand… he messed Robyn pretty bad.

Game Talks About His Lupe Collab.


The Game’s new R.E.D. album may not be as highly anticipated as Dr. Dre’s Detox, but it’s still got the streets looking out for it.  Among one of the least expected collaborations to appear on the album is Game’s track with Lupe Fiasco entitled ‘Skate On’.  Game took some time to talk about the collab, how it came about, and also touched on Lupe’s comment about Barack Obama.

For those of you who didn’t know what all the hoopla was about, concerning Lupe and President Obama, you can read all about it below.

“To me,” Lupe began, “the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. I’m trying to fight the terrorism that’s causing the other forms of terrorism. You know the root cause of terrorists is the stuff the U.S. government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists.”

When asked if who he’ll vote for come 2012, he echoed the sentiments of “Words I Never Said,” saying he doesn’t plan on participating in the voting process because he doesn’t believe he can fully support any candidate.

“No, I don’t vote,” he said. “I don’t get involved in politics. It’s meaningless. If I’m going to say I stand behind this person and write on a piece of paper that says, ‘Yeah, I stand for this person,’ then I have to take responsibility for everything he does cause that’s just who I am as a human being. So politicians aren’t going to do that because I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.”

Fiasco‘s anti-establishment stance is well documented. For those just now being introduced to him, look no further than his latest single, “Words I Never Said,” for his views on politics.

The Game ft. Lil Wayne – Red Nation.


 

Click the pic to hear "Red Nation"

A collab between Lil Wayne and Game is as dope to me as a collab between Wayne and Eminem, and although this isn’t the first, I personally feel like this is one of the best.  Wayne and Game’s single “My Life” was a dope single, and got a very good positive response from the listening public, but the track “Red Nation” is a whole different animal.  The beat, is a re-imagining of an old school classic (just like tons of other rap songs these days) but they lyrical delivery by both Game and Wayne is attention grabbing to say the least.  There’s a certain ferocity and angst that they both have in representing their set that makes the track pop, and they both manage to do it without dissing Crips, which I found interesting.  But click the pic above to take a listen to “Red Nation” and hear it for yourself.
