Vintage Video: Tupac Freestyling In NYC

It’s been a pretty wild week in the world of hip hop. Gravy gets shot in the ass, Snoop gets locked up in London, Turk is sentenced to 12 years, and Shyne got hit off with some dough. And that was just Thursday! So it kind of makes sense that today would be a bit of a slow news day, because honestly (*looks over his shoulder*) what else can possibly happen?

If you’re a regular visitor to this site then you already know that slow news day = old Tupac video. This is a 60 second clip of Pac in all his glory walking through the streets of New York with a 40 (remember when you used to be able to do that?) spitting a drunken freestyle. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Youtube is the best thing since electricity.

    wow there dont be talking greasy about kastro napolean and e.d.i. like that. the outlaws were real as fuck and they killed it on hail mary

    [Kastro]
    They got a APB, out on my Thug family
    Since the Outlawz run these streets, like these skanless freaks
    Our enemies die now, walk around half dead
    Head down, K blasted off Hennessee and Thai
    Chronic mixed in, now I’m twisted, blistered and high
    Visions of me, Thug livin gettin me by
    Forever live, and I multiply survived by Thugs
    When I die they won’t cry unless they comin with slugs

    [Young Noble]
    Peep the whole scene and whatever’s goin on around me
    Brain kinda cloudy, smoked out feelin rowdy
    Ready to wet the party up, and whoever in that motherfucker
    Nasty new street, slugger my heat seeks suckers
    on the regular mashin in a stolen black Ac Integ-ra
    Cock back, sixty seconds til the draw that’s when I’m dead in ya
    Feet first, you got a nice gat but my heat’s worse
    From a Thug to preachin church, I gave you love now you eatin dirt
    Needin work, and I ain’t the nigga to put you on
    Cause word is bond when I was broke I had to hustle til dawn
    That’s when sun came up, there’s only one way up
    hold ya head and stay up, to all my niggaz get ya pay and weight up

    [Kastro]
    If it’s on then it’s on, we break beat-breaks
    Outlawz on a paper chase, can you relate
    to this shit I don’t got, be the shit I gotta take
    Dealin with fate, hoping God don’t close the gate
    If it’s on then it’s on, we break beat-breaks
    Outlawz on a paper chase, can you relate
    to this shit I don’t got, be the shit I gotta take
    Dealin with fate, hoping God don’t close the gate

    not to mention young noble’s verse on bomb firs JERSEY STAND UP

    “Your style wack as ever/
    like you was rockin patent leather/
    Causin massive terror/
    y’all niggaz lack, you ain’t thorough/
    Half rapper half drug kingpin/
    Yer tellin fairy tales dunn/
    “King of New York,” like you the motherfuckin one?/
    But I’m from JERZ and we don’t play that shit/
    From the CLAIRE’S down to NORTH BRICKS/
    all my niggaz flippin chips/
    Gettin rich/
    even though it’s hard/
    Tryin to creep through these halls and brawls/
    without scarred by a revolv’/
    with no warnin signs, cause yo my man took five/
    Now I’m the young one with the nine/
    ready to put in my time/”

  19. bxconnect Says:

    the good old days when you could walk around the city with a bagged 40.
    looking back we really looke stupid on the corner drinking 40s.
    i remember that clip from a old tupac vhs.he also stepped to some nigga selling his bootleg tape on 42nd street.

  20. dubble13 Says:

    @tyronewiggums

    Let us agree to disagree on this point. In my opinion, Tupac always sounded better without the half-azz guests cluttering the track, causing me to press FF.

  21. D. Billz Says:

    Wanna hear a hot freestyle? This nigga Killa B.H. spits that fire, off the top too:

    “My name is Brandon, and I’m the best
    Spittin crack music, coming from my chest
    Everywhere I go niggas know I’m the man
    Yall aint hot
    I cool you niggas off like a fan”

    Tell me that dude don’t got heat chief!

  22. dubble13 Says:

    excuse me
    the moniker was tyronebiggums (my bad)

    >>>COME ON FOEKIST FIRST OFF AGAIN THIS IS HOW IT AL WAS BACK THEN BUT TELL ME THATS NOT A HOT LINE ” YOU WANT TO FRONT/ THEN YOU CAN GET HIT LIKE A BLUNT”

    Whatever that line IS NOT hot, not even remotely hot. That’s a filler line today. That was a punch line back then. Even though alot of cats don’t really be freestylin today, it’s niggas that can seriously freestyle that would come tighter than that today. Don’t forget that I’m a Pac fan, I’m not hatin.

    yessirrr thats what I was referring to in my first post
    I would rather hear half BS and half clever off the dome anyday
    over 16 written (thats not a freestyle) I have had this argument with the young cats b4

  30. KingML Says:

    eminem and juice ruined freestyling by writing their shit ahead of time and practicing and spitting it.

    Juice claims to not be a writer and so does em, but i doubt it.

    that was some ill old school shit. hes was straight off the top of the dome, like “car stop, let me get by!” he was goin off shit happenin around him, not like cats nowadays, spittin pre-packaged, generic shit. it dont matter how good it was, it matters that he brought on the spot.

  39. D. Billz Says:

    YO THAT SHITS HOT, WHO IS THAT KID? THAT SHITS HOT LIKE YELLOW SNEAKERS FAM

  41. AtoZ Says:

    juice definitely wrote enough and have those rhymes embedded in him now. i mean honestly… a freestyle hotter than writtens? that’s cuz they were writtens to begin with.

    and that pac freestyle was soft, but at least it was an actual freestyle. “front” and “blunt” ain’t really that hard to come up with.

    Word up/…………. th nigga wuzz jumpin round shooting like a fuckin monkey

  45. Dumb Nigga aka Milk Money Says:

    Thats probably the funniest scene in the movie.

  46. Dumb Nigga aka Milk Money Says:

    My suggestion to Un Kasa, calm down when you have a gun. He might shoot his eye out.

  47. c0l0mb14n1116 R.I.P Proof Says:

    the nigga alwayz looks like he’s on crack newayzz…..

    no wonder his shyt is called PCP…. nigga addicted to that shit

  48. Dumb Nigga aka Milk Money Says:

    Damn, after seeing that freestlye, i think Un Kasa really needs to calm down and lay off whatever he’s using.

  49. Foekist Says:

    A to Z, I felt the same way about that Pac freestyle. I don’t know how Ty gonna say it was sweet. I think that was Ty…

    @c0l0nb14n14n1116

    I didn’t see it posted before, but on behalf of the random posters (but regular readers) thanks for the link to the Killa movie. Now I can comment on the movie too.

    On the real, this movie was NOT that bad, for a first try. Of course there were MANY things wrong with it – to name a few:
    1) bad lighting
    2) poor script
    3) overacting
    4) generally poor acting
    5) lack of ability to diversify types of “wipes” from one scene to another
    6) abrupt end, with no actual conclusion
    7) for a bunch of “killas” no one in the movie could actually hold a gun properly; they just did what they thought would look “cool”
    8) if you take this script and tweak it (leaving the essential story intact and add an ending), and use different (professional) people to play the roles, you could have a movie that could potentially pull in at least 10-20 million on national distribution – instead of fooling around with “straight to DVD” sales.

  51. D. Billz Says:

    *DISCLAIMER*..IF YOU THINK BLACK ON BLACK CRIME IS COOL AND THINK BODY COUNT PER CITY= CITY REALNESS=YOU BEIN FROM SAID CITY MAKES YOU REAL… PLEASE IGNORE THIS POST

    Unfortunately, that’s what most of these assholes are thinking. I’m from B’more and it’s nothing cool when your stats are:

    Top 5 for homicides
    Top 5 for AIDS/STDs
    Top 5 for illiteracy
    Top 5 for teenage pregnancy
    Top 5 for poverty

    Ridiculous.

  52. D. Billz Says:

    Un Kasa has a song dissin’ Purple City @ Hiphopgame.com. I guess things are not what they seem over there in Dipshit world.

  53. Foekist Says:

    Dubble, I schmell you on that analysis on the movie. In addition, there needs to be somewhat of a plot too. Most of that movie made me wonder who did the editing of this movie

  56. tyronebiggums Says:

    then they have the nerve to trade down again from the 53rd pick with leonard pope still available god damn we passed up some talent

  57. Joe 88 Says:

Did he die or something. Hey billz its a part in the movie where they went down baltimore :-( to hustle or something right, and you can clearly tell that they where still in ny. the store they where grinding in front of had a newport sign up guess how much the cigs where? 7.00 GTFOH i don,t smoke em but i know for a fact that they dont cost that much in baltimore. overall 2 outta 5 and im being nice
