Ever see the movie Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme? It explores the art of truly coming off the top of the dome with clever lyrics.
Nowadays, anytime someone spits a verse that’s not on wax or in concert it’s considered a “freestyle.” It wasn’t always like that though. It used to be that a true freestyle was a complete impromptu rap that was often inspired in the heat of battle with another MC. If you dared to pretend like a pre-written verse was a freestyle, you were dissed. Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme takes you into the world of some of the greatest freestylers ever like Supernatural and Craig G and also shows classic freestyle scenes by legends like Biggie and Mos Def.
