Ocean Wisdom pays homage to arguably one of the greatest ever freestyles.
22 Years ago the world was introduced to a young unknown Jay-Z alongside the super talented Big L. An epic timeless freestyle which is still just as classic today was dropped to the world. Rhyming over Milkbone ‘Keep It Real’ instrumental, the laid back piano laden production was the base for Big L & Jay Z to go back and forth for 7 minutes. Epic punchlines, classic bars and perfect flows all wrapped up in 7 minutes.
Fast Forward 22 years and Ocean Wisdom arguably one of the best things to happen to hiphop for years, takes on the 7 minute freestyle. Reworking some of Jay-Z classic lines from the freestyle and putting his own unique take on this timeless freestyle. This will arguably be the best 2 minutes of your week.
In his own words:
‘It’s been 22 years to the day since the legendary Jay Z and Big L freestyle on the Stretch & Bobbito show! Had to hit studio to drop a Jay Z inspired lyric for listeners…U gotta pay homage to the OG’s’
