Mixtape Memories: 5 Classic JR Writer Hot 97 Freestyles

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

JR Writer been nice. If you’re familiar with The Diplomats’ early 2000s run, you already know though. Dude stepped in as the newest edition of the all-star Harlem crew and made his presence extremely felt next to Cam’ron, Juelz Santana, and Jim Jones with endless bars of poisonous piff, all equipped with extra swag and powerful punchlines. And though his ties to the Dips have been somewhat severed since their glory days together, and his buzz isn’t exactly what it used to be, one thing never changed—JR’s ability to spit bars. ICYMI, he’s already dropped two projects this year.

Unfortunately, JR Writer is currently locked up for a crime he told Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg earlier this week (right before he went in to start his bid) he “100% had nothing to do with.” So to keep the good vibes pumping his way, we put together a short-list of 5 Classic JR Writer Hot 97 Freestyles from back in the day for our latest Mixtape Memories feature. When these recordings first hit the streets??! Crazy.

Hold your head, JR.
