But when a true, unfettered freestyle comes to fruition, its a wonderful sound to behold. We recently celebrated the most famous freestyle session in Yo! MTV Raps history when we honored the 20th anniversary of the series final episode. And today, we revisit ten other shining examples courtesy of revered hip-hop wordsmiths Big Daddy Kane, Das EFX, the Fugees, Lord Finesse, the Notorious B.I.G., Ol Dirty Bastard, The Pharcyde, Redman, Snoop Dogg, and a special group freestyle from Mobb Deep, Nas & Raekwon.
Enjoy the impressive performances below, and stay tuned for additional Yo! MTV Raps throwback memories here on soulhead!
