J-Treds – Freestyle Spotlight

I’ve always thought of J-Treds as one of the most underrated MCs from the late 90s NY hip hop scene. Not only did he rip shit on his solo releases and all of the Indelibles tracks, but he also blessed a good number of radio shows and mixtape DJs with top notch pre-written, improvisational freestyles.

I’ve assembled nine of his dopest radio show/mixtape appearances from the late 90s/early 00s. If you have a freestyle that isn’t listed here, please hit us up in the comments section. Also, if anyone has a picture of him, post a link. I have absolutely no idea what dude looks like, even though I probably have just about everything in his known discography.

First up, a 15 minute Night Train freestyle session. J simply murders this shit:

Next, a 7 minute freestyle session with the Juggaknots:

    J-treds spotlight and Weak Minds with Hi-tech is nowhere to be seen. Not to mention that joint has one of the craziest beats ever produced.

  11. verge says:

    ^Well, this is a spotlite on his Freestyle sessions. Not on his songs or guest verses. Stay up though, I'm sure you'll see that here one day.

    I agree on the dopeness of 'Weak Minds'. Shit, all of those Mass Vinyl releases were craaaazy ill. Shame I can't find any copies for less than an arm and a left pinky nowadays, though.
