    Kendrick had a famously bad freestyle once and he can rap his ass off

    I think the vast majority of rappers write so much material that they’ve committed to memory that a freestyle isn’t a pure freestyle. I think the really great ones can turn memorized bars into an evolving flow for their current situation. I also think there’s just dem dudes that can flow at a drop of a hat.

    My white cousin went to jail and said Rage Against the Machine lyrics helped him earn respect in "freestyle" battles

    Fantano said on his review of the song that on drakes next album he should purchase all the beats, write his raps then throw them in the garbage and let Freddie rap

    Big KRIT rapping over Drake’s Hype beat is one of my favorite things.

    How are we labeling freestyle rappers? Jigga claims to freestyle his rhymes but I don’t buy it. Songs are far to structured most of the time but there does seem to be cohesion lacking in his raps that Nas definitely has. I buy that Lil Wayne does because most of his shit makes absolutely no sense.

    Ghostface says he freestyles his way through supreme clientele and that’s hilarious when you consider how people regard that album

    I can think about 20 legit freestylers off the top of my head, granted they come from my era

    which lead me to the Hieroglyphic Crew vs Hobo Junction On the Wake up Show w/Sway in 1994 still the most epic freestyle I ever heard and most talked about in Bay Area history, got heated that guns were pulled

    I read about his process and it’s pretty much stringing together mini freestyles. Get faded af, go to studio, put on beat, zone out. When you come up with a couple of lines, stand up and say them in the mic. Repeat ad infinitum to string together verses

    Makes sense. He’s made a career (and even an argument as an all timer) out of rapping absolute bullshit then hitting you with a haymaker of a one liner

    The generational gap between my little brother and me in regards to Lil Wayne is comically absurd.

    Not a huge Wayne guy, but Carter I, Carter II, and Dedication - No Ceilings mixtape Wayne were top fucking tier. Carter II was a nearly flawless album that brought real lyricism back to mainstream hip hop following the 50 Cent era.

    Maybe. Although he was spitting pretty hard on a lot of those joints too. But I do love that era of Wayne. Everything outside of that has been trash though and he did usher in a huge generation of really shitty rappers, so I get the hate.

    yeah you have a guy like supernat that can have stuff passed up to the stage through the crowd and give 4-8 bars off the top and then grab the next object and so on and so on for 10-15 minutes easily

    most admit that they have certain words or phrases they fall back on to buy some time when they get lost though

    you’re watching thinking goddamn that’s incredible, but this is the only place it’ll ever work

    juice is my favorite freestyler (definitely biased ‘cause i was around him throughout my teens) and he’s only made maybe 3 songs i’ve ever liked

    I find myself "growing out of it" a little bit, because I'm not about slanging and fucking bitches anymore at the moment. But interest can be cyclical like that. I've had big periods before of going all hip hop, no hip hop etc.

    I am definitely not saying I want an album of dad rap from Chance The Rapper because no one except Boo MFer! wants that

    I just find that the stories and pictures painted within rap music continues to be interesting for me. I don’t look at it as slanging as much as I see it as surviving and it’s not so much fucking bitches as it is getting laid. I still listen for the new shit that reminds me of the old shit but I keep an ear out for anything interesting
