I’m posting this to demonstrate what a real freestyle is. This is the definition of a real emcee right here. Most of the things that you hear that are called “freestyles” are just pre-written raps over a new beat. If a freestyle sounds too polished, it means, it’s not reallllly off the top of the head.

Also, R.I.P. to J. Dilla…if he was still alive, it would have been his 36th birthday today. He was definitely one of the best to ever do it on the MPC.
