A week after Chicago rapper Lil Bibby came through #AudiomackStudios trappin' in his pradas, we turn from upstart to legends as veteran Detroit ensemble D12 stopped by to Bless The Booth.
For their "100 Proof Freestyle," viewers will be treated to a perfect mix of menacing bars from long-underrated lyricists Kuniva and Swify McVay, and hilarious stream-of-consciousness raps from Bizarre, who is hands-down one of the most hilarious artists in hip-hop history. All things considered, the 30 seconds before any rapping begins might be some of the greatest candid moments we've had in the booth to date. Brainiac Beats and Bigg Kid contribute the effort's street-ready production.
For more D12, make sure you check out the group's most recent project, The Devil's Night Mixtape(hosted by DJ Whoo Kid), in addition to their recent music video for "Steel Ill." Beyond that, keep it locked (and subscribe to our YouTube channel) for more audio and visual dopeness from EarthGang, Tommy Swisher, Tsu Surf and more.
We hope you feel blessed, because following entries from Casey Veggies, Locksmith, Chaz French, Don Mykel and more, we have reached the nineteenth installment in our Bless The Booth series. For those not up to date, Bless The Booth has taken over for our now completed DJBooth Freestyle Series, which ran on and off for the past six years and included contributions from the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Wiz Khalifa, Yelawolf, Big K.R.I.T. and more.
From the DJBooth headquarters at #AudiomackStudios, located in the heart of SoHo, NYC, to your laptop or phone (more likely), Bless The Booth brings you exclusive bars from your favorite emcees. Characterized by its off the cuff nature, our Bless The Booth series is the result of artists coming through our office to kick back and have a drink or two while enjoying the comforts of our newly remodeled digs. After cycling through a wide range of beats and achieving the optimal vibe, it's time to head into the booth and hit record.
