Can you really Freestyle?

Freestyle rap
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Freestyle rap is an improvisational form of rapping, performed with few or no previously composed lyrics, which is said to reflect a direct mapping of the mental state and performing situation of the artist. It is non-scripted, non-rehearsed, uncut, and the rawest form of hip-hop. Artists will often refer to places and objects in their immediate setting. Freestyle rapping forces an individual to think on the spot, describe their surroundings, and, to a certain degree, rap uncensored from what is inside. It is similar in this sense to improvisational music or acting and draws comparisons to improvisational jazz in particular.

I think freestyle rap is sometimes taken for granted... People should understand what freestyling actually is (see above) ..and you will notice that most rappers dont actually freestyle when asked to. All the youtube videos i labeled"freestyle", are ACTUAL freestyles...

It takes skill to come up with ideas quickly that make sense together... It's nothin to remember a few written lyrics then recite them to a beat and call it a "freestyle"... that's weak...

Usually you can tell if the emcee is actually freestyling by the way they deliver and the content of the rhymes... In real freestyles you will usually have short pauses or mess-ups and the content will usually be many different topics....

"Call it a Lyrical Brainstorm" or "Blogging to a beat"

In my opinion, real artists should be able to freestyle... (ex. Charles Hamilton, Tone, Grenade, Q-tip, Akil Dasan, Scriyl ect.).. thats just a few i can think of right off the top... I'm sure theres way more... BUT

Props goes to all the emcees that can freestyle... Ya'll deserve more recognition. PEACE.*DeadOn*

Egos were tested... Kinda.

Tonight was the scribblejam Prelim MC battle.. Tone signed up on some spurr of the moment ish. He went against some older cat.. He was more of a comedian like moxy said.. Shouts to Moxy for winnin that shit...Represent... this nigga was actin a ass.. lol But yea.. Tone lost. dude won the crowd( the judges) with his "funny" punchlines.. and sayin Shit that wasnt really true... I felt like it wasnt really a battle showcasin true mc talent.. if the crowd liked you, you won.. But yea.. thas how battlin is most of the time.. and it be Sooo shitty to lose on some bs... I think Tone would get dude if he had another chance.. Its whatever tho.. YCM still here.

We spend hours out of the day and sometimes full days doing strictly MUSIC, its crazy.
We'll manage tho..

All this uploadin stuff takes For.. Ev.. Err lol.. reminds me of the sandlot. But im in the process of uploadin hella shit, My pc might break down... hopefully it dont. But as far as YCM, we been workin, recordin, and livin life. Yes, we have lives besides music... BUT music takes the majority of it. F everything else. MUSIC IS LIFE lol.. I threw a new beat up, compliments of Mr.Rezai. Called it "Quick" because of how quick we made it.. When me n Rezai collab on a beat it always comes out sooo different than any other beat.. I think its dope tho.
