Major pet peeve of mine.
But when we feel in the mood to freestyle, we do the damn thing. Total off-the-top improvisation. Below is one of the favorite cypher sessions I’ve ever been a part of. 2001’s “Orphanage Freestyle” on the Break of Dawn radio show (KFAI) = Eyedea, Slug, Sage Francis, Aesop Rock, Blueprint, &Illogic with beats being spun by DJ Abilities.
