MIXTAPE EPISODE 54 – THE FREESTYLE JOINT
Oh shit, shop I’m actually on time with another episode. This is yet another concept episode, sildenafil one I’ve had on the stove for a few months now – the Freestyle Episode. Also, my image program ain’t working today so you’ll have to live without the cover art this time. If anybody wants to make me a picture, email me.
Ike Eyes – PSA Freestyle. Yep, you know this one. If you haven’t heard the Brooklyn Legends Vol. 1 mixtape by now, you’re missing the fuck out. myspace.com/ikeeyes
DK – Go Crazy Freestyle. DK is sort of ridiculous with some of this shit. Sample quote: “We made white move like gentrification”.
Skit – Poin Lean. Yep, a “Shoulder Lean” beatjack – but this is actually superior in pretty much every way to the original. I mean, the cat switched up the chorus. Sample quote: “Hit cupid on the phone / Ask him where’s the love at”. myspace.com/datsskit
Allstar – untitled freestyle. This was off a Gangsta Grillz / Yo Gotti mixtape, but this particular track got more play in my deck than any of the Yo Gotti joints. Sample quote: “That’s for y’all Steve Urkel-ass niggas / Hang around rats all day, Ninja Turtle-ass niggas” cashmoney-records.com
Jay-Z – Hot 97 Freestyle. Courtesy of DJ Mr. King. I’m not even going to comment on this one.
J.R. – BBC 1Xtra Freestyle w/ Benji B. One of the only MCs I can think of that sounds good even without cursing. I definitely have a lot of respect for JR and what he’s doing. No sample quotes here, but check the bizarre-ass beginning. shamanwork.com
Agallah – Freestyle. Agallah is pretty much a staple around here at the Mixtape Show. This is off the Propane Piff mixtape, and again, isn’t even the best joint. And yes, getting shit stolen out your house is terrible. Lock your doors, kids. myspace.com/agallahdonbishop
Skit – Chevy Ridin. Yes, another beatjack from the heretofore unknown Skit. This cat literally sent me three mp3s in an email that contained nothing but the mp3s themselves, his name, and his city (Houston). No promo, no onesheet, no nothing. I’m fucking with that. Again, the dude sounds better than the original. Skit, you got a mixtape or something? Shit. Sample quote: “Playa I don’t need a roof / Scarin’ niggas like Beetlejuice”. myspace.com/datsskit
