Kendrick Lamar made a stop at the Hot97 studio with Funk Flex while out in NYC the other day, and you know that means we got a new freestyle out of the visit. K-Dot goes in with two verses over Biggies controversial classic, "Who Shot Ya". Kendrick is currently on his BET Music Matters tour, and finally it's Toronto's turn to witness greatness. This is not a show you want to miss, if you haven't already done so be sure to grab your tickets here to see Kendrick Lamar, Ab-Soul, Jay Rock and Stalley take over the Sound Academy tomorrow night. Take in the freestyle below and remember good kid, m.A.A.d city drops October 22nd. Update: Now with video...
DJ Skee & FunkMaster Flex (I KNOW!) bring you Game's new (double disc) mixtape which you can see is called Purp & Patron. As most Game releases this one is also feature heavy but mark my words: Game always (consistently) puts out quality albums, mixtapes, etc.This one has appearances by Wiz Khalifa, Pharrell, Snoop Dogg, T-Pain, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Travis Barker, KRS-ONE, Doug E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane with production from The Neptunes, Bink!, Nottz, RZA, Mr. Porter, Dr. Dre, Cool N Dre, 1500 or Nothin', & Green Lantern. Whoa.

Jay breaks down a little bit of meaning behind his Most Kingz verse that ended up around a few places. One being a Hot 97 Funkmaster Flex radio "Grammy Family Freestyle" also Green Lantern got his hands on the real acapella and produced a beat for it and placed it on his last mixtape. The verse/song had Chris Martin on the hook and was originally supposed to be on Kingdom Come. You can check Hov's delivery of the Grammy Family version on Hot 97 by clicking here and honestly..its one of Jays best.
Do you think Fabolous is overlooked? I don't mean underrated because he's sold millions of albums. By overlooked I mean, everyone know he's dope but people might not really pay attention to him? I'm just throwing different ideas out there so you can give me your opinion. Even if you consider yourself an "underground" Hip-Hop head I think Fabolous does cross over. What do you think?
