Freestyle is culture. Free style is art. And art and culture is Hip-Hop.

On Tuesday, August 29, at Play House Nightclub in Hollywood, nine freestyle rappers from across the Nation battled it out at Verizon’s #freestyle50 challenge where they competed for a debut produced by London On Da Track, an opening slot in the upcoming 300 Artist Development Tour, and $10,000. The challenge was hosted by Sway Calloway (former MTV VJ) and Smack White.

The nine were chosen from over 9,000 entries submitted through Instagram and Twitter; however, out of the nine finalists only eight performed, due to one being from Houston and having to deal with unfortunate weather conditions which prevented him from attending the finals.
