Hot 97 Radio Freestyles (1996)

Here’s a bootleg 12″ that I recently picked up. It featured 5 freestyles, live & uncensored, recorded at Hot 97 in 1996. The first freestyle is a 20 minute cypher with Cappadonna, Ghostface Killah, Timbo King, and U-God. It follows with two freestyles from A Tribe Called Quest(With Consequence). The next freestyle is from Nas & Cormega. Nas was promoting “It Was Written” and Cormega had just signed to Def Jam. The last freestyle is from Ruck & Rock of Heltah Skeltah.

A1. Wu Tang Clan – Freestyle (Feat. Cappadonna, Ghostface Killah, Timbo King, & U-God)
B1. A Tribe Called Quest – Freestyle #1 (Feat. Consequence)
B2. A Tribe Called Quest – Freestyle #2 (Feat. Consequence)
B3. Nas – Freestyle (Feat. Cormega)
B4. Heltah Skeltah – Freestyle
