Sometimes it’s a good thing to wipe the slate clean and start a fresh. After 16 freestyles from artists from all different corners to warm the taste buds I am now preparing the official release of the YHTN Freestyle Series Vol. 1 compilation. The tape which at the moment will feature 10 records will hopefully be dropping in February sometime.
To get the ball rolling is none other than New York spitter Donny Goines who was kind enough to be part of this whole thing we got going on. Not a bad way to start off if I do say so myself. Donny takes Wu-Tang’s Ain’t Nothing Ta Fuck Wit instrumental and graces it with a few bars. DOPENESS.

Yerp, that’s right, the freestyle series is BACK! For those who know my work you will know running a freestyle series is something I have done for a while. The first 14 freestyles we had here covered a whole bunch of artists from different backgrounds. The first 14, were only just a warm up. Freestyle number 15 comes from Philly upcomer Chill Moody who I am sure you have seen somewhere across the net before. The Philly gunner certainly knows how to deliver bars and got busy over some production from DJ Premier for us today. This will serve as the first release from our freestyle tape “YouHeardThatNew:: Freestyle Series (Vol.1). The tape will have 15 freestyles from a whole load of artists. Stay tuned.
On another note, Chill is performing live at the TLA in Philly soon. Tickets go on sale at noon today and you can grab them from LiveNation. Chill is headlining a show for the first time and I am sure he would appreciate the support if your out that way. His RFM album is coming soon.
We took a little break from the YHTN freestyle series, we gave you 13 freestyles so you can’t complain. I have put together a dope list for the next 13 and we kick it off with Detroit born FowL who recently moved to New Jersey. The 20 year old who was crowned the best freestyler by Eminem after winning the Red Bull EmSee competition a while ago was originally to be in the first 13 but due to moving we had to wait. Fear not though folks this freestyle over Black Rob’s “Whoa” is worth the wait.
When I got word that the homie from Irvington, New Jersey Ess Vee was down to cook something up for our series straight away I was anticipating what he would come up with. He does NOT dissapoint. Over some original production Ess goes in, Victor Cruz style.

We took a little break from our series to arrange the next 11 artists who will participate. First up to the table in the second sitting is PG County, DMV native G-Two. He tackles Just Blaze’s “Lord Knows” instrumental. As a bonus I have chucked his latest visual for his “Weapons Of Mass Seduction” cut from his recent “One Man Army Vol. 2: War Paint” project. The visual is after the jump.
Week #11 see’s Atlanta’s rising star Trailbalza team up with Flawless Tracks in this interestingly titled “Fuck Your Favorite Rapper” freestyle. Flawless Tracks is the man behind Wale’s “Bait”. More to come from Trailblaza in the upcoming weeks.
We 10 deep and we ARE NOT stopping here. 10 more to come yet folks, but for now Detroit native Scolla (formerly known as Young Scolla) is up next to the table. Scolla grabs some production from a long time friend of his The SoulSun. The SoulSun is a new producer to this game who Scolla actually went to High School with, he is new to this game but you wouldn’t tell that from the production he lays down. Scolla as per usual brings along that cool vibe, the production fits his sound perfectly. Youheardthatnew shit that new shit? Well, this that cool shit.
I told you I was just warming up. Up next to the table is Richmond native Nickelus F. This series just continues to grow & grow huh. I don’t even have to say much about this, you already know what Nick F has to offer. The first bit of solo material since his “Faces” project. Grab it below. Up next….you’ll see.
Number 8, my lucky number. I am pretty sure you are familiar with the Baltimore native Rickie Jacobs. He has been gracing the pages of many blogs for a while now. First and foremost I’d like to thank the man Buck for putting me onto this dude in the first place, secondly I’d like to thank Rickie himself for being part of this series. The first 7 freestyles (check the search bar) got you warmed up now I and many artists are going into BEAST mode for this series. I wont let many cats out the bag but just be warned.
Rickie is a dude who I have been supporting since my solo blogging days, a dude who I have alot of respect for. You probably don’t have to be told what instrumental he chose to go in over, it was a great choice by Rickie as he lets off some steam through his bars, with that no pen or pad flow. Peep it below. Don’t label him as a rapper, he’d rather be called an author.
I’m still relatively new on the Will Brennan bandwagon. From what I seen the dude is a straight up beast. He even sent me over 2 freestyles, the dudes got bars for days. Anyway, freestyle numbero 7 in our lil series see’s him tackle Plies’ “Who Hotter Than Me” instrumental. Killed it.
