tinashe-sway

Make no mistake, Tinashe is a burgeoning star in today’s music industry. But she’s also a burgeoning star with a wide range of talents. Don’t believe me? Well, on top of being one of the best (and dare I say underrated) contemporary R&B singer-songwriters, she can also hold her own when it comes to this rap thing, too. Don’t believe me? Tinashe recently stopped by Sway in the Morning to discuss her tour with Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry in Latin America, but was eventually put on the spot by Sway himself to deliver a freestyle. Tinashe, being a woman of her word, did indeed kick a freestyle — albeit with a hint of singing thrown in — with a quality outcome. Don’t believe me? Hit the play button after the jump.

While Drake and Meek Mill continue their beef, Waka Flocka Flame has decidedly used their “R.I.C.O.” collaboration for a freestyle of his own. Because, like, I thought this was about rap? This is actually kinda refreshing from Waka, too — he’s been a little quiet as of late. Check out his “R.I.C.O.” freestyle after the jump.

Ah, good ol’ drill. I miss 2012 when drill was popping off in Chicago and the whole world was going crazy. Now it seems as though drill is on its way out; Chief Keef has gotten stranger and weirder, Lil Durk had one too many creative bricks, and King Louie is maintaining his status in the Chi by being a consistent street rapper. But what about Montana of 300? This dude gets little to no love and he’s a spitter–a rarity in the drill scene. Here he tacks on Shmurda’s “Computers” and completely murks the beat. He’s also joined by one $avage who is A-ok. Check it out after the jump.
