Wrapping up our second annual DoomsDay Cypher on Sway in the Morning, we invited up-and-coming rappers to our Shade 45 studio & allowed them to freestyle over live beats by well known producers.

This week, we kicked things off with R-Mean and That Kid Era. Both rappers, from both sides of the coast, took turns freestyle over Sram Jones’ beats. Watch HERE.

On the next day, we gave the spotlight to the hungry rapper Lantana & female hustler, Lore’l. Watch that dope freestyle HERE.

On New Year’s Eve, female rapper, Jaz the Rapper proved that she can hang with the big dogs when she kicked her freestyle. RellyOn then dropped line by line until the beat was killed with his freestyle, making references to many recent events like Sharkeisha and Sway’s interview with Kanye West. Catch that HERE.

The first day of 2014 was given to Inland Empire’s HS87 boys, Oktane and Price — better known as Audio Push. These talented rappers have been hustling for years, and prove it with their witty and energetic freestyles. Don’t miss THIS one.

Next up was Maffew Ragazino & Spade-O. Both East Coast rappers spit cold bars over live beats. Watch as they take turns freestyling HERE.
