Last night, Kanye West was the headliner of Hot 107.9’s 20th Birthday Bash in Atlanta, GA. The set included a couple surprises, including an appearance from 2 Chainz during “Mercy” and a freestyle that referenced the recent murders in Charleston, South Carolina. While he was in Atlanta, West also hung out with OutKast at the Waffle House. He also reportedly spent some time in the studio with 2 Chainz. Check out the 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.

A lot has been happening for the 22-year-old Chicago emcee as of late. For starters Vic Mensa performed with Kanye West on Saturday Night Live, delivering a hook on ‘Ye’s forthcoming “Wolves” track (set to appear on So Help Me God) followed by some turned up live performances with the man. The live performances were for a track entitled “U Mad,” which recently got released as a single. In addition, Mensa also signed with Jay Z’s Roc Nation recording label. That’s huge. So, yeah, evidently Mensa is doing quite well for himself on the mainstream end right now. Mensa also stopped by to team up with LA Leakers for an exclusive freestyle over Future’s anthemic Monster cut “Commas.” Check it out after the jump!

Freestyle isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think of the Atlanta trio Migos. But goddamn, watching this Tim Westwood freestyle it’s indicative that the trio of Quavo, Takeoff and Offset have incredible chemistry as they go off for 17 full minutes. Straight. No breaks. The three YRN: Tha Album rappers dropped bars over “Grindin’,” “OG Bobby Johnson,” “Money Baby,” “No Type,” “Computers” and more. Check it out after the jump.

Fabolous’ ongoing #FridayNightFreestyles has been a relative success thus far but with this new one right here it’s either make it or break it for how you feel about Loso. Sure, he’s already gone over an undisputed classic in his “B.A.S.” freestyle but Mobb Deep’s 1994 cut “Shook Ones Pt. II” is a milestone/watershed moment for hip-hop. It’s such a statement in hip-hop culture that even one iconic Detroit rapper Eminem has stated numerous times that its had a profound impact on him. In fact, you may recall Eminem’s “B-Rabbit” character from 8 Mile rapping over the track during his final freestyle battle. Anyway, if Loso doesn’t deliver and do this classic instrumental justice then his whole #FridayNightFreestyles is moot. You be the judge after the jump.
