Damn these cats are incredible. I don’t really have to say much more than that. You all should do yourself a favor and watch some of the best cats in the game do their thing off the top of the knot.

*Side Note: Evidence is still a fucking beast.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

In the above video you can catch Cymarshall Law tearing apart the Hip-Hop Kemp Festival in the Czech Republic. In the video you get a nice little cameo from Devin the Dude in the beginning as Cymar is breaking down the situation. Another surprise gem is getting to watch a little footage of Blu & Exile performing together, which I’m sure is an incredible experience. At the end of the video you get to see Cymar rocking hard on the stage. Follow me after the jump to hear Cymar ride over RZA’s “New Wu” beat. (It’s super dope) Continue reading

It’s always good to have a little bit of Sluggo in your day, don’t you think? Atmosphere is out on their “When God Gives You Ugly” tour tearing down venues across the nation. During their performance at Webster Hall, URB got the chance to shoot a decent amount of footage (not to mention the video footage is pretty damn good) of the concert. If you’ve ever been to an Atmosphere show, you know the shit’s dope and the crowd is always involved. In the video featured above you will get to see the track “Guarantees”, and you can follow me after the jump to catch Eyedea & Slug freestyling Orphanage style, as well as the track “Fuck You Lucy”.

Chali 2na teaches Freestyle 101 to G4

This man is one of the best in my opinion. The “syllable killa/verbal gorilla” Chali 2na has a voice that is unparalleled by anyone else. When you hear that deep voice start on the track you know the beat is going to get decimated. In this video for G4 TV, Chali 2na spits a pretty ridculous freestyle (it starts off slow, but once he gets into it he lights it up) and talks about his introduction to the art of freestyle, both in the neighborhood and professionally. Chali is one of those guys that you have to listen to because everything he does is just that ill. Make sure you go out and get the Jurassic 5 EP re-issue right away.
