Is pre-written a freestyle? MF GRIMM to the jugular

We get some nice attention paid to one of the greatest: MF GRIMM in this interview in Unkut.  Robbie, the president of the conservative rap coalition, rocks a two-part interview with GRIMM.

I get offended when people say, “You’re not an MC if you don’t go off the top!” Making like writing is a crime. As a Black man in America, I take that as an insult, I feel like it’s subliminal bullshit where people want to get you away from a pen and paper. Back then, freestyle was two different things – it was a written that no one ever heard before, or it was off the top of your head. How dare some one say that because I have seven thousand rhymes in my head that I’m not equivalent to somebody making something spur of the moment! From the moment I lost that battle with Supernatural, I dedicated myself to being a writer. No more battling. I’mma learn to be like Edgar Allen Poe.

Don’t sleep on the new GRIMM LP!  “Good Morning Vietnam” is strong as hell and made by GRIMM and Drasar Monumental.   Drasar’s beats are really hard — and GRIMM showcases some serious wordplay.   And if you aren’t following Drasar’s hip hop battlefield your homework is lined up!
