Marlon Craft | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #140 (Video)

If y’all on one, I’m on two!

Okay, Flex. You might be able to test young Marlon on his knowledge. You got him by a couple of years. But I dare you to test him on these BARZ! Listen!!

Dash Flash – “Bars On I-95 Freestyle” (Video)

The I-95 freestyles are golden with me. I click to watch and start my write-up before the raps even get started, because I already know the BARZ are gonna be there and be top shelf. Truly, everybody can’t make the cut to reach rarefied air in Connecticut.

Bars On I-95, Connecticut’s number 1 Rap platform for your favorite Hip-Hop artists. We love when veterans come on our platform and show the new guys how to get it done over a beat. What we love the most is scouting and discovering new rappers and we are always honored to be able to display their talent to the Hip-Hop community so the industry gets familiar with them. “When are you going to have a Spanish rapper up there?” One of the dope things about Hip-Hop is it’s versatility, it touches all cultures. We caught that comment and called Dash Flash down to the show and he got busy. TAP IN ‼️
– Bars On I-95

Only thing I take issue with… sorta… is the shots fired in the general direction of over-30 rappers in this. But young lions take bites out the backs of the old sires to take over as king of the pride. It’s treacherous in the jungle, even for the kings! It’s Hip-Hop.

Arsonal Da Rebel | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #139 (Video)

My disrespect be on some other sh!t…

Now, if Arsonal did a diss track on you, you would KNOW you have been DISSED! Barz can get treacherous (and they do). Funk Flex had to fall back, again! This is what he must mean when he says “everybody can’t come up here!”

Calboy – “Tim Westwood Freestyle” (Video)

Another Chi-towner checking in a freestyle for Westwood TV. We posted that Common freestyle a while back. Now, feast your eyes and ears as Calboy EATS on the track. That cadence he raps with had me thinking of a young and hungry Meek Mill. Good stuff!

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Freddie Gibbs & Madlib (Video)

I like this whiskey in my cup. We not givin’ a f**k…

‘Skinny Suge’ and Madlib make their way to the studio for a Tiny Desk concert. And everything is right with the world. Actually, it went a little left, starting jazzy then lyrics went HARD. But that makes things even ‘righter’ (haha)!

This Freddie Gibbs and Madlib Tiny Desk performance was a year in the making, largely because Madlib insisted on playing with El Michels Affair, a vintage funk and soul band based out of New York. But it was worth the wait. When pianist Marco Benevento opened with a delicate, almost jazzy run, it created the perfect opening — and juxtaposition — for hard-hitting emcee, Gibbs to jump in and ride the hell out of that beat.

Young Zay – “Bars On I-95 Freestyle” (Video)

Two things not to ask me: For money or a handout!

You see the title line. You hear the theme when you hit play. I started this write-up as soon the vid started. I already know I-95 is ONLY with the hot sh!t #LetsGO

Bars On I-95, Connecticut’s number 1 Rap platform for your favorite Hip-Hop artists. We love when veterans come on our platform and show the new guys how to get it done. What we enjoy even more is scouting new artists that we believe is representing for the culture, and having the honor to provide a front row seat for the hip hop fans to see the next big artist. Young Zay currently working on his project stopped in to give us his Bars On I-95 Freestyle. The young MC straight out of the Bronx, New York, currently signed to Asylum Records. TAP IN!

Locksmith Speaks And Spits For Hip-Hop Culture… And Fellow Guests Fat Joe & Dre Are Amazed (Video)

Your favorite rapper is full of sh!t.

Quiet as kept, Fat Joe doesn’t give out this level of insanity props to just any emcee. I’m thinking… the last time he really gave out kudos like he was flabbergasted… was when he talked about Big Pun. Rarefied air. Props well deserved for Locksmith. Dude is a BEAST with the BAR talk!

But don’t take my word. Watch and listen to the man spit the FIRE from above.

We’re not new to Locksmith’s bars — but he came by to drop off a fire freestyle with Dre and Fat Joe in the room. Watch as Joe adds his seal of approval by calling him “the best.”

Young M.A x Max YB x Korleone | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #138 (Video)
