While on Showoff Radio, Talib Kweli kicks off a quick cypher over the Hit-Boy-produced instrumental for “1 Train.” He then passes it to Chance the Rapper who uses his sporadic humorous rhymes to liven things up even more. Cory Mo proceeds to end the freestyle with some bars of his own. One of the risks of actually going off the top of the dome is that sometimes you don’t actually catch the flow. Even if that may be partially the case in this freestyle, you must respect the efforts of someone that puts themselves out there in the moment for better or worse instead of being so conscious of their image that they hide behind writtens. Which do you prefer in a freestyle: off the top or written?
