Over the Summer, Chris Rivers (pka Baby Pun) went on a tear, with weekly releases of both original material and freestyles over classic beats. One of the standout cuts was his rip of Big Daddy Kane’s 1988 staple, “Ain’t No Half Steppin’,” with Termanology. Now, Rivers and Term link for the video, and they take it back to the essence of Hip-Hop.

Venturing to a park much like the ones where Hip-Hop started in its earliest days, Rivers and Term mount a rapid-fire cypher, surrounded by heads sporting track suits, a boom box and fat gold chains. In between shots of the two MCs ripping their verses, B-boys are shown busting windmills, headspins and other fresh moves. It’s an ode to an era when it was just about beats, rhymes and life. Take a look.
