The music scene was buzzing this week with new releases, videos and “Holy Keys”, but there were some unofficial moments that were blazing the ears of Hip Hop heads that left us bobbing our heads and salivating for more. From freestyles to live streaming DJ sets, Hip Hop was on fire and RESPECT is putting it all in one place for you.
One moment we couldn’t stop talking about was Dave East‘s freestyle on Hot97 during the Funkmaster Flex show. Bringing two and a half minutes of straight bars, you know he made the list. We also snatched up the impromptu live streamed DJ set from Mad Skillz as he came “Live From the Basement” with his special mash up tribute to legendary music icons Michael Jackson and Prince.
Bringing a new element to his legendary freestyle segment, Sway not only blessed us with some bars from Mir Fontane & Don Flamingo, but some banging production from Mike Zombie. Noreaga, Remy Ma and Memphis Bleek teamed up and quietly dropped their blazing track “4 Da Win” and Brasstracks gave lyricists everywhere an epic beat from an unexpected source on Rhythm Roulette.
