The DJBooth Freestyle Series is known as a right of passage for emcees preparing to move to the next level. Before blossoming into the mainstream, former underground golden boy’s like Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller cut their teeth in the heralded series during it’s initial two-year run. The showcase tallied over 250 entries and introduced the world to a number of today’s most impactful leaders of the new school. Returning for its second run, the DJBooth Freestyle Series taps Chicago emcee Mick Jenkins, whose “Free Nation Rebel Soldier, Pt. II” is still fire, for entry No. 16. Check it out below.
