Audio: Big L & Jay-Z – Stretch Armstrong & Bobbito Show Freestyle (10 Minute Version)

How’s this for a rare gem. We’ve all heard the legendary, 7 minute, back and forth freestyle session between L and Hov from the February 23, 1995 episode of the The Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito Show on WKCR. Shit, most of us can probably spit it word for word. But unless you were listening or recording that night, you probably haven’t heard this extended, nearly 10 minute version.

Two of the best lyricists of all time. Pay homage:

    Jay still kinda suck on this. Big L kills him

  13. London Bloke Says:

    Yo i remember one time when me, Chea and Ghostface was backstage after a show. This badass chick, real athletic, a long distance jogger, walked pass and Ghost was like “yo shorty, lemme holla at you.” I seent the glint in her eye when she walked past, so i threw some extra British in my accent on some “You alright luv. Lemme get a butchers of ya in the hotel suit.” Chea standing there, mouth wide open (n) as grabbed the broad, my Savile Row bespoke shirt on show, and took her back to the hotel we was all staying at. Chea played wing man and fucked the precious-looking friend, whilst Ghost stayed asking for sloppy seconds. She let him hit. Rae too i think.

    Chea ended up marrying the broad tho. She even requested “Back Like That” to be played whilst she walked down the isle, probably thinking about how we took turns to run train. I didnt attend to avoid obvious awkward reasons.

    I just noticed that “raise hell” line Jay used. That niggas was recycling lyrics ten years later, lol.

  22. Howfresheats Says:

    Aw man. Freshness. I had this tape. Left it in an ex’s car. Had another copy that my boy lost. Always wished the banter was part of the freestyle. “That was an R&B Party, man, ya know”, “It was probably Reef”, “I don’t give a cotdamn who it was, I’m here now.” Hilarious. “I fucked up on one line, but it’s aight.” “Watch your mouth buddy.” Stretch & Bob were the best.

    Big L murdered this shit so disgustingly. So much that Jiggaman had to jack.

    Nigga listen to both versions of “Me and my Girlfriend” and tell me who’s is better.

    It’s not about what niggas say out here. it’s all about how it all comes together. Music/Lyrics/Flow….

    Biggie changed the game (east Coast rap) not with Lyrics but with Beat selection and Hooks…

    I wonder why that 2nd verse nvr made the mixtape and the cuts we always heard.

    It’s always kind of exciting knowing dudes like Big L were better than Jay. Jay is Jay but if some rappers didn’t die he wouldn’t be the JAY-Z we know today.

    Biggie sounded nothing like fu schnickens homie… his words made since… Jayz was making up words in that 2nd verse lol.

    Even Big L kind of toned it down to where he could say actual words…

    You control ur destiny not some other nigga….

    And if u think about it, dying at a early age put pac and big real high on the list, because they nvr got the chance to fall off…..

    According to the lawsuit, the incident unfolded on June 17th in the city of Philadelphia, when Dr. Hill to produce his vehicle registration, to which Hill complied.

    After questioning why he was being stopped, Officer Decoatsworth allegedly yanked Hill out of the car by his arm, pushed his fist into his back and asked Hill if he “could afford” his vehicle.

    As this occurred, another unnamed officer searched through Hill’s vehicle without his consent.

    Officer DeCoatsworth then told Hill to “get out of this neighborhood and go home” and never charged the professor with a crime.

    Dr. Hill, who is a resident of Philadelphia, earned his P.H.D from the University of Pennsylvania. He claims the officers violated his First, Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights.

    he’s from the wood and hes a damu…but damu rapp has always been better

    ^^^^^^

    Nope he is from Pamona, Ca (listen to i rather give u my bitch) and he is from 357 Crip.

    And a Crip (snoop) actually was the first west coast rapper to hold the Crown. im talking about the whole game and not just the west coast like Eazy,Cube and maybe dj quick.

    Mack 10 is from the wood and he is a buster who claims Queen Street Bloods but his old set don’t claim him back.

    and nope Quick is the only damu nigga

    i dont consider outkast speakerbox and love below and mc hammer albums true hip hop albums

  116. &What?! Says:

    I think what Big created is a fucking masterpiece, cause from the last song on Ready To Die, he links right onto Life After Death, the concept is dope, and the face he died after stopped him from releasing any albums which fans argue are wack (aka Jay-Z and Vol 3 etc). So from a musical point of view, Big made his two concept albums and that’s it. And that concept to this day is still dope, and can never be touched.

    why would i give a fuck about what Pac wore?

    he didn’t look like a Bitch in it…

    Versace vest nigga the kind that Biggie fat ass wanted but could not fit…

    and a nose stud so what lots of niggas had them Shabba ranks had one.

    He was a Ladies man…

    Nigga Made Cognac millions. Nigga brought Crystal to the Game. Had three classics in a row.

    Nigga give credit where it’s due.

  119. &What?! Says:

    Double albums count as two separate albums, so 15 Million for Speakerboxxx/The Love Below is only 7.5 mil per album..

  120. Mr. Iceberg Slim Says:

    People will nvr admit it but big owed a lot to puff, because puff cleaned everything about that ashy lumber jack clothing mutha fucka up

    Like a Nigga wearing a European Versace Vest.

    as far as the Rags on his head shit was not gay in the early nineties.

    Faggots didn’t get passes like they could now… HipHop was Anti fag…

  140. Hopp Says:

    I always though L made Jay-Z seem mad nervous and unsure in this freestyle session. Jay ain’t shit compared to L that night and it sounds like he knows it, he hadn’t really found his flow yet.

    The crazy shit is to think that L was on the verge of signing to the Roc when he was shot in 99. Imagine, L with Jigga, Siegel, Cam at the height of the Roc! L over Just Blaze and Kanye’s early shit. DITC cats would’ve even been featured on L’s shit. AG or Finesse in the mix over there would’ve been crazy.

    I bought the jayz album from sam goodys it was on sale, the tape for 799 and i looked at the credits and it had biggie on it, so i said shit, biggie worth 800, man i bought that shit and me and my homeboy was working at boston chicken. (I was the dish washer, he was the chicken cutter). It was friday we got off and were going to the 24 hour check cashier, after we cash our check, some white boym (no lie) walked up and was like yall want some green. My homeboy was like fuck it and we got a dub sack, my home boy got some philly blunts, rolled that shit and we went to his girlfriend at the time apt. complex. I just sat in the car smoking solo (he would come back to the car every few mins and hit the L) but mainly i was just smoking to L to the head and listening to RD. I did alot of shit since than, but as reg. as that shit is, those were good times. That was the first week of summer and let me tell u that was a crazy ass summer

    his dad hustle with nicky barnes and frank wright, than got killed. Then he made jodeci, mary j blige, biggie and all the drama over the years. If Puff told it all, i swear it would be a hit. He got all that j lo drama, the shyne shooting, the bball game where 6 people died. Shit diddy got drama for years

  168. Vincent Van Dro Says:

    Puffy’s seen drama but that shit sounds like the most depressing movie ever.
