    Screen-Shot-2015-04-13-at-10.21.40-AM

    Freestyle isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think of the Atlanta trio Migos. But goddamn, watching this Tim Westwood freestyle it’s indicative that the trio of Quavo, Takeoff and Offset have incredible chemistry as they go off for 17 full minutes. Straight. No breaks. The three YRN: Tha Album rappers dropped bars over “Grindin’,” “OG Bobby Johnson,” “Money Baby,” “No Type,” “Computers” and more. Check it out after the jump.

  • New Music: Fabolous – “Shook Ones II Freestyle”

    loso-shook-ones

    Fabolous’ ongoing #FridayNightFreestyles has been a relative success thus far but with this new one right here it’s either make it or break it for how you feel about Loso. Sure, he’s already gone over an undisputed classic in his “B.A.S.” freestyle but Mobb Deep’s 1994 cut “Shook Ones Pt. II” is a milestone/watershed moment for hip-hop. It’s such a statement in hip-hop culture that even one iconic Detroit rapper Eminem has stated numerous times that its had a profound impact on him. In fact, you may recall Eminem’s “B-Rabbit” character from 8 Mile rapping over the track during his final freestyle battle. Anyway, if Loso doesn’t deliver and do this classic instrumental justice then his whole #FridayNightFreestyles is moot. You be the judge after the jump.

  • Nutso – The ProfileWild Interview

    Nutso - The ProfileWild Interview

    “I rap for lifers and felons,” Nutso proclaims on “Unda Ground,” the intro to his latest EP, Divided Souls, completed with DJ Pain 1 and his Divided Souls production team. But Nutso’s lyrics transcend and boxes one may try to place them in. Perhaps Nutso’s most important gift as an MC is his ability to describe the beautiful struggle while never slacking on a bar. While the Queens product has dropped a slew of quality EPs over the past few years, he’s also stayed busy working with and showing love to the next generation of MCs on the rise. With a winner-take-all mentality and the quality music to back him up, Nutso shows why he’s one of the most consistent and gifted MCs coming out of the NYC. In this exclusive interview, we talk about Divided Souls, finding success as an indie artist, his new album with Domingo titled Red Sunday, working with legends like Kool G. Rap, and much more. Stay tuned after the interview as Nutso drops an exclusive acapella and survives a round of questions served via the Random Question Generator (if you want to know what homie’s last dream was, here’s your chance).
