10 of 2016’s Top Freestyles.


c46812a97227a0e996285ca375ca74d4-1000x675x1

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.

WOLF by Tyler, The Creator


130214-tyler-creator-wolf

Rapper and frontman of Odd Future – Tyler, the Creator – has presented the trailer for his upcoming film WOLF, directed by his alter-ego Wolf Haley. The one-minute trailer begins with a close up of Tyler lighting a cigarette, before issuing the command for his gang members to beat up a nerdy version of himself. The track that plays in the background throughout the whole clip is “Rusty” featuring Domo Genesis and Earl Sweatshirt.

Tyler, The Creater & Domo Genesis – Sam Is Dead.


Odd Future rapper Tyler the Creator may have been born long after the Vietnam War was over, but that doesn’t mean he can’t use it to set the scene for his band’s new viral music video for the song “Sam is Dead.”  Evoking everything from Wes Anderson’s Rushmore to a title screen that looks straight out of a Robert Rodriguez movie, the song features mellow production set against scenes of death and a mass grave that isn’t exactly explained. From a guy who is known for disjointed but compelling songwriting and wild live shows, it seems appropriate. It also makes sense that Tyler directed the video—he recently tweeted he wants to move out of rapping and into film scoring and production.  Tyler the Creator creating movies? We can’t wait for the feature-length—weird, spooky storyline and all.

Loiter Squad – Episode 1/Odd Future Afterparty In San Francisco.


Just like many other 18-15 year old males in the U.S., I’ve become a fan of most of the programming on Adult Swim (the off the wall late night programming that comes on Cartoon Network).  As the line up has changed over the years, I’ve had many different programs to look forward to, but a few months ago I got a bombshell dropped on me that Odd Future would be getting their own Adult Swim programming slot.  The people reading this not totally familiarized with O.F. might not understand just how ridiculous that concept seems, but you will soon.  I’ve managed to get my hands on the first episode of the show ‘Loiter Squad’, and not only is it pure unadulterated hilarity, it’s also exact what Adult Swim needed to keep their line-up fresh.  Check the method below.

For those of you who are unaware of the O.F. movement, let me just open up your mind to the situation.  The group is led by rapper/producer Tyler, The Creator, and includes rappers Hodgy Beats, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis and Mike G, singer Frank Ocean, producers Left Brain, Syd the Kyd and Matt Martians, and other non-musical members, notably Jasper Dolphin, Taco and L-Boy (that appeared in the ‘Loiter Squad’ episode above.)  Their music is a crowd hyping force to be reckoned with, and anyone who wants proof of this needs to go no further than San Francisco.  O.F. is gathering at 330 Ritch on April 9th for a night of intoxicated skullduggery courtesy of Above Ground.  Click the pic below for tickets.

Wiz Khalifa – Day Today -While You Were Sleeping.


Wiz Khalifa’s video blog series “DayToday” follows the young rapper through his entertianment  exploits.  With dozens of episodes already out, the first one that caught my eye was “While You Were Sleeping”.  This video follows Wiz in the studio with Pharrell Williams and a few others (including Tyler The Creator).  Check out a little of what it’s like to be Wiz.

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.
