Chris Rivers – “Free Free”

Ahhh. Just like the original… if you stripped out the ‘poppiness’ and ‘mumbles’… and replaced them with the BARS. Ha!

Chris Rivers continuing his constant heat with a freestyle over 6ix9ine’s “FEFE” featuring Nicki Minaj called “Free Free.” Chris is having fun on this one with various flows and vigorous bars, bragging and talking about being free.

Chris Rivers – “Now Or Never”

Chris Rivers blesses us with an introspective freestyle over Isaiah Rashad’s “Shot You Down” he calls “Now Or Never.”

It’s easy to be distracted or held back with everything that happens in life. But sometimes you have to accept that it can’t be now forever. Sometimes it’s Now Or Never.

Listen to dude run the alphabet in the rhymes. Pretty clever.

CHRIS RIVERS – NOW OR NEVER

Chris Rivers – “Stay Hungry”

Riverrrrs! Dude is the hammer and the beats are all nails. Only one way to go at ’em… Bang on ’em… HARD! Knock holes in walls and floors if necessary. This freestyle is just another example.

Chris Rivers is kicking off this week’s freestyle over “Holding It Down” by At Wendy’s, off of their “We Beefin?” EP with his version called “Stay Hungry.” We can clearly see that Rivers never lost his hunger with these insane flows and braggadocios bars hitting us with humor, punch lines, and that good old fashion Chris energy.

Chris Rivers – “Can’t Fight The Healing”

That son of a Pun, Rivers! Back with another freestyle. Retouching that Mac Miller jawn this time around.

Chris Rivers rhyming some science over Mac Miller’s “Fight The Feeling” with his own rendition “Can’t Fight The Healing” where Chris paints the picture of someone with a broken heart attempting to find connections elsewhere which are ultimately shallow and unfulfilling. It’s clear that there is a need of time for healing.

CHRIS RIVERS – CAN’T FIGHT THE HEALING

Chris Rivers – “This Is Depression”

Well, if somebody’s gotta touch the ‘it’ beat of the week, it may as well be Chris Rivers. He’ll do it justice.

Is there a beat that Chris Rivers won’t rap over? Don’t answer. That’s rhetorical. Hear him go in over this Cardi B jawn in what he calls “I Like It Like Rap.” Is it good? DON’T ANSWER… until you press play (but you already know… It’s Rivers)!

Chris Rivers – “You The Man” (Freestyle)

How could I be a phony? I only act how I feel…

Yeah. Rivers rapping that real AND letting y’all know how he feels. Get ready to listen again. The rhyme is sweet and short. Run it back ’nuff times to get what dude is saying.

Chris is back this week with another freestyle this time over Kanye’s “ Everything I Am” which Chris clearly feels everything he is, is the Man. On “You The Man” Chris shows the gradual transcendence from that boy to the man in his own eyes facing his own internal obstacles which ultimately became the reasons for his greatness.
