Mistah F.A.B. – “TRL Freestyle” (Video)

I mean, I think I knew that TRL was back on the air… but it’s not like I knew knew, like enough to check for it… until now. Skillful off-top freestyling with Sway feeing him topic after topic. Respek on the name Mistah F.A.B.

3D Na’Tee | What We Do T.Mix | Monday Morning Exercise #010 (Video)

And LOOK: He gave her the cosign to do this joint!!!

Chip – “Fire In The Booth” (4th Freestyle) [Video]

Been keeping an eye on the ‘Fire In The Booth’ freestyles since Drake blessed that. Looks like Charlie Sloth got more fire, more fire, mo’ fi-yaaah! Apparently, this is far from the first time that Chip has been there. Shows. This one’s pretty dope.

Jay Electronica x Yasiin Bey – “Exhibit A” (Remix) [Live Performance] (Video)

If you are a true Hip-Hop head, to say Jay Electronica and Yasiin Bey performed together is enough. So that’s all we’re saying. In case you are not [yet] a head… go ask someone who is to join you as you watch this.

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Smif N Wessun (Video)

Not like they don’t belong on this forum. They do. Just did not expect to see them featured in their own Tiny Desk Concert. Very glad Smif-N-Wessun are though!

Brooklyn-bred Hip-Hop duo Smif-N-Wessun – consisting of partners in rhyme, Steele and Tek – illuminated the Tiny Desk with their signature, 80-proof poetry: straight, no chaser. Their music, inspired by their gritty and pre-gentrified Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brownsville neighborhoods, offers the vocabulary of veterans who survived the grimy streets. These original members of the Duck Down Records group Boot Camp Clik represent quintessential ’90s true-school Hip-Hop from the bedrock, when Timberland boots were standard issue. Backing Steele and Tek for the first time is D.C.’s own Black Alley band.
Abby O’Neill, NPR Music

(That “One Time” they wrapped with sounds extra nice.)

The Hoodies – “They Say” + “4, 3, 2, 1” (Freestyle) [Video]

Hard to kill off two n!ggas that’ll kill for each other!

Brothers gonna work it out! Still Hoodie season! Early!! Young Poppa and E-Class smash another freestyle. Easy work. At least they make it look that way. These brothers doing their thing always brings a smile to my soul… the part that still holds a place for real Hip-Hop. One time for The Culture!

3D Na’Tee | Wild Thoughts T.Mix | Monday Morning Exercise #011 (Video)

When DJ Khaled hollers, “WE THE BEST!” I wonder if he hopes that someone the lyrical caliber of Na’Tee will come behind his trackwork and let off a couple of shots. Skills + Sexy. Na’Tee gone “work you out like a Bowflex” and you will LOVE her for it #MondayMorningExercise

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Mac Miller (RIP) [Video]

One more time for Mac Miller man. RIP to the young emcee we will sorely miss. He did leave us with a dope Tiny Desk Concert. Small comfort, but good stuff nonetheless.

Aug. 6, 2018 | There was a shift in Mac Miller’s boisterous demeanor as he started the third of his three-song Tiny Desk set. It’s the first time he’s performed tracks from his new album, Swimming, in front of an audience. On “2009,” he rubbed his chin with clenched eyes, looking like a young man who’s beginning to crack the code. Backed by a piano loop and a string quartet, he reflected on his journey’s peaks and valleys…

Got Thundercat in there, too. Nice!

Dublin | Freestyles On Flex (Video)

This cat Dublin spits hot FIYAAAH! Noticed that they did not number this ‘Freestyle On Flex‘ though. Wonder if that’s the way now. If it means more emcees featured, with more fire BARZ, I’m for it!

Machine Gun Kelly | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #107 (Video)

Daaaaaymm. MGK dropped some heavy names and took some SHOTS at folks in this freestyle. Then again, when not? Flex gave him a hot mic, and he is MACHINE GUN Kelly (not, like, make them feel good about themselves Kelly). Aggressive!

3D Na’Tee | Rake It Up T.Mix | Monday Morning Exercise #014 (Video)

So Na’Tee shoots others’ music videos, not just her own. It’s a good look (for the bread and probably for the ‘Gram… you SEE her on the set?? WOW). Okay, back to this week’s flows. Did…did she just say she was about riding face ’round this place? #Yoooooo #PxssyForLunch

I know you know by now… Na’Tee ain’t just making words rhyme over someone’s beats. It’s about the BARZ! She’s reaching out to the viewers, making it worth your time to watch. Putting it all in this. She speaks on her father again on this episode, and the emotions gush forth again #Realness
