Allow me to start this off by saying, that I am not impressed by a freestyle. Honestly, you can give anyone a .40oz of a digusting alcoholic beverage, and once it's been consumed, tell them to start saying rhymes off the top of their head. Sure, it might not be amazing or even remotely memorable, but they're bound to say at least a few lines that are “witty.” Hell, the stupidity of what they're saying might even make you laugh, in which case it's still entertaining.

However, imo, it takes actual talent to compose an entire song, and even more to incorporate a theme and/or underlying message within it.

The reason why I made this is because I've heard people say that you aren't a rapper unless you can freestyle(baka!), and that it's the “rawest” form of Hip-Hop(baka!).

So, my question to you is, which do you find more entertaining, and which do you value more?

Both… When you run into a GREAT freestyle emcee, face to face, you respect what they are capable of… They tend to do the same thing, when it comes to hearing an emcee that can write sick s**t… I've only known 4 GREAT freestyle rappers , and they had the abilities to do both written and off the top… Sadly, one is passed on, and two are in prison…

IMO…Freestylin is a gift..not too many can do it..writing is a gift also..not too many people can do it…

once i figured out the key to writing songs I stopped freestylin…maybe cuz i think too much nowadays but I put more effort into writing songs…Aside from BIG and Hov..cant really think of alot of MC's that have that knack to turn a freestyle into a hit song..thats y theyre called GREATS!!!

Freestylers cant write…writers cant freestyle

think about it…ask a freestyler to sit down and write a song…the 1st thing theyre going to say is…I can do this off the top…ask a writer to freestyle…1st thing hes going to say is I dont freestyle..gimme a pen and paper…when u take a MC out their comfort zone its hard for them to do certain things…when u realize that ur good at one and not the otha…u drop the one your not good at…

im a writter i can freestyle -=- just not well..and yes it IS a gift BUT i do find both amusing because the fact that they can think ahead of them self and i mean WAY AHEAD of em self is just amazing ionno maybe its cause i gots ADD but a friend of my said”What makes you a GREAT RAPPER IS FREESTYLE”i sometimes just freestyle for some time and come up with a track


you aren't a rapper unless you can freestyle(baka!), and that it's the “rawest” form of Hip-Hop(baka!).


Who ever thef**k said that should get raped and burned cause thats just bulls**t…..

Also..listen to the way they flow…the MC that writes flows better than a freestyler…he knows wat he going to say so he can swag it out…

Might be ADD…some people just dont have the patience to sit and think about lyrics…
