Chino XL Spotlight

I always thought that the best freestyles were of the improvisational, pre-written variety. I admire the fact that certain artists can kick some shit off the top without any preparation, but in most cases, I find that it’s not really worth listening to.

Some of my favorite pre-written, improvisational freestyles come from the likes of Tame One, O.C., Ras Kass, Percee P, Craig G, etc, but if I had to choose a favorite, I’d go with Chino XL. I consider Chino to be a legendary MC, but I don’t know if I’d feel that way if not for all of the outstanding freestyles that he blessed us with via the Wake Up Show, Stretch & Bobbito, Hot 97, etc.

Here are some of my favorites. As a bonus, I’m also listing 18 of his best non-album tracks. Enjoy!

    Bad Cop – I don't think that this one ever got released on wax. There is no discogs entry for it.
