It’s always refreshing to hear D12 rock the mic, especially because all 3 can freestyle. Bizarre goes first and has so many lines that are hilarious shock value. Swifty kicks a real nice flow over “Renegade” next and his bars get better as he goes. Then, dang! Kuniva comes in for 4 straight minutes and doesn’t let up. Watch the entertainment above.
Here’s a fresh #TBT post for ya as I just caught wind of The Concourse’s rundown of Rap City’s Biggest Freestyles. They caught a ton of legends in or just approaching their prime so this is a fun trip down memory lane.
Included below: Backpack era Kanye, throwback jersey era Wayne, and whom this format was tailor made for: bandana era Eminem (with D12, R.I.P. Proof).
I just included those 3 — The Concourse has Snoop, T.I., Luda, Dipset, and even Destiny’s Child amongst others.
In an interesting interview with ESPN’s Highly Questionable, Royce Da 5’9″ broke down a few stories that haven’t totally gotten huge pub over the years. As such, much of it was new info for me.
Royce first explained what partying and shooting a music video with Jerry Stackhouse was like back in ’01.
That was just the beginning as Royce then moved on to talk about the “Hi Rihanna!” shoutout that got some buzz in the 2011 BET Cypher and if they had seen each other since.
Then, most touching was the recalling of reconciling with the late Proof after a run-in with each other in Detroit led to an arrest and a night in the slammer. Interesting times back then and it’s good they made amends before Proof’s untimely murder.
Last thing: diggin’ how Bomani Jones, Dan Le Betard (and Pablo Torres filling in), and Papi are getting these hip hop interviews on ESPN. These are never really not fun.
Eminem stans, here’s a must-have new 66 track mixtape featuring a ton of old Shady Records classics and some new, unreleased cuts as well.
Need I say more?
Well, I will just a little bit. One gander at the tracklist is instant nostalgia of tracks like “Go To Sleep”, “Rabbit Run”, “Fight Music”, “Patiently Waiting”, “How Come”, and I can go on. Naturally, I’m also intrigued to check out Eminem’s version of “Wanksta”. Yeah, there’s gems like this below. So without further ado…
