Insane freestyling special

For those who don’t follow hip hop at all, this video is of Eyedea of Eyedea and Abilities and Slug from Atmosphere freestyling.  Freestyling is free form rapping completely off the top of the head. Many of the best rappers in the world go through the freestyle battle circuit where in a 1 vs. 1 competition, both rappers attempt to diss each other.  Eminem is one who found his way to notoriety through the battle circuit (as shown in 8 mile).  Like I said, these aren’t practiced lyrics, freestyles are completely unrehearsed and it is highly frowned upon if people think that you have practiced lyrics before a battle.  In my opinion, Eyedea (the guy in the middle) is the best freestyler ever.  He has won several prominent battles and has proven himself time and time again to be ridiculously quick-witted.  Slug doesn’t disappoint either (he’s a veteran as well).  Either way, I encourage you to listen to this more than once to catch the nuances since it can be hard to hear them. You will be amazed at how fast these guys can rattle off complex rhymes.
