Only 5 left in stock (more on the way). Freestyle Fellowship expand rap music's boundaries wider than their lungs right before they let loose the verbal acrobatics. Groundbreaking songs like "Inner City Boundaries," "Park Bench People," "Bullies of the Block," and "Hot Potato" brilliantly build on the concepts of old-school jazz improvisation in a present tense, as the MCs bounce verses off each other and the cool, jazzy beats. The album opens with "Blood/Bullies of the Block," which starts with a cool a capella intro and gives way to an old-fashioned boom bap, braggadocio freestyle track with upbeat production. They assure the listener that "Everything's gonna be alright" on "Everything's Everything," which has impressive verses delivered at lightning speed between party and instrumental breaks.
