Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme (Trailer)

Ok, I know I’m late on this one (about 5 years), but it’s dope so I’m posting it anyways. An in depth look at the art of freestyling as well as the TRUE definition of a freestyle. Rappers pay attention please…

Over ten years in the making, FREESTYLE: THE ART OF RHYME, provides an explosive inside look into the creative framework of hip-hop culture and the improvisational art of freestyle – where MC’s express themselves by creating rhymes in the moment. Following some of hip-hop’s biggest luminaries, FREESTYLE explores the art form’s history, rules, legendary MC battles, taboos, social impact, and the previously unexamined dimensions of improvisational rapping as a spiritual and community-based art form.

Directed by rising filmmaker Kevin Fitzgerald (a.k.a. DJ Organic), FREESTYLE: THE ART OF RHYME documents the freestyle scene from the early 1980s through the present day, featuring a who’s who list of seminal hip-hop figures including MC Supernatural, Mos Def, Roots members Black Thought & Questlove, Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, Freestyle Fellowship, Lord Finesse, Cut Chemist, Craig G, DJ Kool Herc, Juice, Boots of the Coup, Medusa, Planet Asia, MTV’s Sway, Crazy Legs, Jurassic 5 members Cut Chemist, DJ Numark & Chali Tuna, Wordsworth, Bobbito Garcia, and The Last Poets, providing a rarely seen portrait of hip hop that is at once entertaining, historical, and educational.
