freestyles from back in the day


Here go a few freestyles from back in the day.  Shout to my boy Stretch Armstrong, First person to ever put me on the radio.  I remember sleeping in his studio when I didn’t want to go home. 

I used to go by the name, Quikman.  I know, I know…LOL


LISTEN NOW Free Style on Stretch

    No Dre Beats on the Free Agent pimp. It’s a mixtape/album. All new songs. Video for every song

    cool so i guess it’s like the brick to keep that buzz going.I thought free agent was gonna be that official album and i thought damn you gonna stay underground but its good to know that you got big plans. i’ll still get that free agent and damn a video for every song.. thats crazy. i think good times could be pushed to bet. i know that shit would bring so much more fame cuz that’s like mirroring a ny summer so nicely lol.

    Mad love Joell! This is ‘sooooo’ bootleggish and all, but I have a request…if it’s cool? ‘course mad folks have done this on ‘space and probably on ‘book (Myspace, Facebook), but in my pursuit of attracting mo’ readers to my own personal blog (eh, comp. recognizes comp.!), I will occasionally do blog comments on other sites to kinda ‘product place’ my own stuff in thurr, you know? Rather than goin’ through the trouble of pickin’ random things to comment on, can you peep my blog (soo desperate blogger meets housewives with it, huh?) and if it’s “interesting” ’nuff, you’ll post ‘long side your “sites” you peep? Hhmmm….? ; ) Cwwwazy love ‘gardless, just had to finally toss it out, chu know? ; ) Mad love maaaaaaan!

    -Go Cyrus Go (Inspector Gadget with it, huh?

    Letter to Obama is my jam got it all over my myspace and my ipod homie keep it up

    I heard every one of these freestyles live on Stretch. You Lazy, Boom Pacino and Pretty Ugly used to be the main reason I tuned in to Stretch every Sunday night. Those were moments in history for me. You gotta get the joint up that you did with Pretty Ugly though, I think it was called “Philly-Brooklyn Niggas”

  19. August 5, 2008 at 2:33 am

    “Speaking of Stretch, can we have a “Where Art Thou” for Quick, Lazy, and Pretty Ugly? That freestyle with these 3 guys plus Boom Pacino is right up there with that Cam and Juelz joint for top 5 radio freestyles ever. And if you could find the audio for that, you would truly be the Archivist.”

    My friend and I have been waiting for this for 9 years. Today is a great day.
