Royce da 5'9's new album is fire.
he was on a podcast i listen to recently....he's had some crazy shit happen to him by the sound of it
One time he dropped his chicken and mashed potatoes on the floor.
That one with Pusha T was kinda cool.
I don't really listen to hip hop too much anymore though.
What do you listen to, PLZcallmeTED?
If anything, '80's and '90's R&B or '90's hip hop when I'm in the mood.
I was watching EYEDEA vids (RIP) for the 100th time and I stumbled upon Brother Ali's 5 Fingers of Death.
Now, a lot of people were busting nuts over Logic's performance and he was pretty good, but BA was better.
Lets be honest, all of these guys quote memorized lines.
What makes one better than the other is their ability to incorporate their surroundings and to make it relevant in real time.
No one did that better than BA and they were trying to trip him up, those last few tracks were shit:
Ah. Yes. Allow me to address a common misconception. People hear the word "freestyle" and they think it should mean making up lyrics on the spot. The word came into common use in New York years ago to refer to a verse that isn't from any particular song -- it's something you have ready to go for cyphers or live appearances at someone else's show, etc. So there's no "honesty" required. Everyone has freestyles that they've written and memorized in advance, and if someone starts a beat and says "Go!", that's what they'll do. Every rapper does freestyles, but very few can do them "off the top". You know someone's going off the top because what they're saying is referring to what people around them are wearing and doing at that exact moment.
These are freestyles, but of course they're memorized.

cant wait to hear some shit from RTJ3
i like him. he's real honest about his problems. alcoholism, etc
I don't fuck around when I mess with hoes.
You better get your ass down before I take off my clothes.
I'll fuck your wife in the dead of night.
Then I'll take you down and make you look like a clown.
Yo, I don't fuck around when it comes to dope.
Everybody know I get my shipments in a big ass boat.
