Watch Logic Freestyle for the L.A. Leakers

It seems as though Logic is continuing his ascension to the top of the rap industry and stopped by Power 106 & the L.A. Leakers on his way. They simply said “we want to hear more shit” and after thinking for about 5 seconds, the man starts to rattle off one of the most unbelievable lyrical performances I’ve heard in a while. There seems to be some discrepancy as to whether this is a “freestyle” or him spitting something he’s previously written for the album; to be frank it doesn’t matter, it’s unbelievable no matter how you slice it. No official word yet as to when his Def Jam debut album will become public but after a performance like this we can’t wait.

Action Bronson – Funkmaster Flex Freestyle

Action Bronson - Funkmaster Flex Freestyle

After dropping off his brand new remix to Funkmaster Flex, Action Bronson decided to pay the man himself a visit. He invaded the Hot 97 studios and sat down with Flex about some things. As usual though, any MC that comes to Funkmaster Flex’s offices has to take to the mic, and that Action did.

He ran through a dope, impromptu freestyle, showing off his lyrical ways, and uncanny delivery rather nicely. This shit is too dope, Action is a beast with this rappin’ thing. Check it out after the jump.

Black Hippy – U.O.E.N.O (Freestyle)

Former Reebok endorser Rick Ross should probably take notes on this one. In promotion for the good kid, m.A.A.d city Tour, the Black Hippy crew decided to unleash a wild freestyle over U.O.E.N.O beat that tops any remix of the track I’ve heard thus far. Check the video up top to see the squad pal around with Mac Miller and grab the download below!

Logic – Tim Westwood Freestyle

Logic - Tim Westwood Freestyle

Newly signed Def Jam artist Logic just loops lyrical circles around listeners with this freestyle he did across the pond for the one and only Tim Westwood. The Maryland talent goes IN on Kendrick Lamar’s instrumental for Poetic Justice so skip to about a minute in and listen to a true talent of our time go to work. Not to mention that he goes 8 Mile acapella style for a minute and a half and says more than most artists can say in an entire album of material. Sweet Jon Bellion shoutout at the end as well.

Kendrick Lamar Freestyles on Hot 97 with Funk Flex

Kendrick Lamar Freestyles on Hot 97 with Funk Flex

There are two things I’d like to point out in this post. The first part is that Kendrick Lamar is on a WHOLE other level than everyone else. After coming back from his overseas tour, Kendrick Lamar stopped over at Hot 97 and threw down three ridiculous freestyles over Nas Is Like, Keep It Thoro by Prodigy and Ain’t Nuthin Ta Fuck With by Wu-Tang Clan; needless to say they are all lyrical clinics. The second part more has to do with Funk Flex. He may be the funniest person to listen to when he says stuff like “YEAH I’M TALKIN WITH THE IPHONE IN MY HAND!” Classic.

Raekwon – Who Shot Ya (Freestyle)

raekwon who shot ya

Raekwon the Chef fulfilled the dreams of hip hop lovers throughout the world with a properly dished verse over The Notorious B.I.G.’s classic instrumental for “Who Shot Ya”. The freestyle should hold thirsting fans over, as the Wu Tang Clan rapper preps his forthcoming Lost Jewelry EP, that will be dropping in early 2013. Raekwon also has plans to design three custom bikes with Affinity Cycles that will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going towards Hurricane Sandy victims. And let’s not forget a possible Only Built 4 Cuban Linx… Part III sometime before 2014.

Gabriel Stark – GATSBY (Complete Free Album)


Through a mutual contact, I came across this young & talented artist by the name of Gabriel Stark earlier today and HAD to put him on blast. The Bronx native has garnered positive attention from some of music’s biggest blogs and has been covered in both XXL and Prefix Magazine. He spit a quick “Sucker Free” freestyle for MTV back in February which can be seen here. Below is his most recent album (his seventh already) which features some amazing music. Peep the record and be sure to follow on him via social media connections.

Eminem – Something From Nothing: The Art Of Rap (Clip)

Ice-T takes us on an intimate journey into the heart and soul of hip-hop with the legends of rap music. This performance documentary goes beyond the stardom and the bling, to explore what goes on inside the minds, and erupts from the lips, of the grandmasters of rap. Recognized as the godfather of Gangsta rap, Ice-T is granted unparalleled access to the personal lives of the masters of this artform that he credits for saving his life. Interspersed with the performer’s insightful, touching, and often funny revelations are classic raps, freestyle rhymes, and never before heard a cappellas straight from the mouths of the creators. What emerges is a better understanding of, and a tribute to, an original American art form that brought poetry to a new generation. Below is a clip of an Eminem bit in which he freestyles off the top of his head. Enjoy!

AND check the official trailer…

Make sure to go out and see this movie in theaters – June 15, 2012
