Kendrick Lamar‘s beasting on Hot 97’s Funkmaster Flex with three, er, two freestyles to “Keep It Thoro,” “Nas Is Like” and “Wu-Tang Clan Ain’t Nuthing Ta F*ck Wit.” If our math isn’t adding up it’s because we noticed the second video over the “Nas Is Like” beat isn’t a freestyle. Yeah, we caught that. It’s actually the second verse from good kid, m.A.A.d city’s bonus track “Country Building Blues.” The kid’s still nice on the mic, though.
Coming off the top of the head with rhymes that not only ride the beat but actually make sense is no easy task. K. Dot’s a top notch emcee who didn’t have to fake the funk as if everything he spit on Funk was from the dome. That aside, his freestyle skills are a force. If he keeps doing this sort of thing will we never not compare all freshman class rappers to this kid?
