I stopped this before he started rapping. I know Royce about to KILLL THIS freestyle. Period! #DocHicksTv
@Comedian Haze No Em said that Royce is one of the only guys on the same level as him not that he's better than him. Personally I think Em and Royce are pretty equal but Em is better with the fast flows while Royce is better at the slower smooth flows, I prefer Royce though
@Comedian Haze Em would still torch him
@Justin Hardill but bruhhh...EM SAID IT HIMSELF!!!! Only cat he hated following was Royce! From the Horses mouth; Hence why Royce is the only dude mention Em daughter and not catch flack for it
Who's still here listening to this masterpiece 2 years later in quarantine
One year later..... Still on it !
3 years in
You asked before I could. This man is str8 🔥
"I'm bringing bars back to the street like Jay and Nas beef / Broadcastin' Ether in HD at godspeed!" Gets me every time.
who is wearing roc nation hat?
Missed that one, god damn
He's so good. Flow , multi sylabics, clever metaphors. All round solid.
Solid is a huge understatement, I'd say.
This is aging like a fine wine, it upgrades every time i listen to it, like reading a book, Royce is an elite level lyricist, especially after his next freestyle on leakers, which is insane
Remember when he dropped this > ru-clip.com/video/IuBC7I2WNAM/video.htmlD-12 were like ...... Nope.All came good in the end tho. Royce is a monster !!!
WOW! Royce with the UNGODLY flow.
@ thang was toooooo Godly!
Love his bars!!! Hey BOXINGEGO was up ? Love your whole Boxing Channel! Keep it up!!
BOXINGEGO eminem is god
WOW is right😂 pun intended?
dude can spit. I like the way he finds and uses the pocket. Good breath control and a solid delivery. Dude's nice with the pen too, combos and rhyme schemes are tight and coherent with punchlines and even conscious lyrics. Salute Detroit.
The one at 3:10 nearly hit hard if they didn’t laugh
@Natty and Daddy Show freestyling and off the dome are different, freestyles are just raps that are free of style basically to show off what you can do without the song having a purpose
To be fair, this *is* his pen work. It's not off the dome. He'll tell you himself, he can't freestyle like that......... But seriously, who cares? This was LEGENDARY
He’s one of the best to ever do it.
"Your favorite artist couldn't benchpress my notebook" may be a fixed point in the history of hip hop. It's a nigh undefeatable bar.
"Let's hypothetically say I'm pissed, I will definitely AR grip. I will definitely spray off quick" 🔥🔥🔥
@colesrk that wasn't even a bar lol that was a setup for the line afterwards.... which was " You think I'll hesitate to shoot this bitch? then you're definitely in the playoffs with J.R Smith"
@colesrk Sometimes its not what you say but how you say it. He probably just likes the way it flowed. Cause it was definitely a filler bar in this freestyle
@J'LEN TAYLOR It's not that great of a line at all. All he said was 'I'll shoot you'. An AR is a civilian version of an M-16 and "spray" is a synonym for "shoot". It's probably the weakest bar in the whole rhyme but these guys are saying it's fire because he said he'd shoot someone. Pretty dumb tbh.
I don’t get it
This never gets old. Royce is on another level 🔥
If Black Thought’s freestyle was the exclamation point of 2017, then Royce’s is the standard for 2018. Flex just made a huge statement.💪🏾👏🏾🙏🏾
@jokatech I did listen to the lyrics to both. Look up thoughts freestyle on genius. Thought has more annotations to literary devices (simile, metaphor, alliteration, personification, imagery, etc) than Royce da 5'9"
You dudes saying Thought was waaaay better clearly don't listen to lyrics. You're focused on the person. Lyrical content wise, both freestyles are godlike. This one make actually have more substance collectively than Thought's. Listen carefully it is definitely on the same level.
@Ronald Donald Binary Star!
don't sleep on tory lanez freestyle too he bodied it
This freestyle lives rent free in my mind. Have been listening to this for years and still goes hard every time 👌🏼
The only guy who can mention Hailey's name and go free
@SimpleTimes what??!?! Th feds stopped murder inc. How you suppose to lose to a rapper but beat the feds? Benzino was never a real rapper. Benzino owned the source. Mgk was just on yellow wolfs album which is on ems label. Idk where or what you stans be on yall need to chill. Royce dissed em what happened? Nothing royce still spittin fire .
@B H ja rule, benzino, he pushed mgk out the rap game..
@SimpleTimes whos career?name the artist?
@B H he ends careers when they say her name.. that hurts more than ".Meet me outside" especially when eminem never says anything about beating someone ass.. he always talks about getting his ass beat by thugs but kills em on tracks
"Either going straight for the kill gun-slinging coming out like Jada and will I come swinging" that was a bar head of its time truly
So blessed to have recorded a track with this Legend! The most unorthodox flow in hip-hop history 🤘
THIS NEEDS TO BE ON SPOTIFY Please upvote so they see this 🙏🏼
"I'm like Biggie and Pac trapped inside of Big L's body"
@me hasselty wdym
That's a whole novel in lyrics! Royce is a living legend! We are blessed to listen to you, man!
Tapping in as a "Native Detroiter" way to represent Royce💪🏽💯
The best freestyles are the ones where you have to pause after some punchlines to give yourself a moment to absorb. A lyrical genius this one. Respect
I did that 10 times watching this
@Sinister Frog UNDOUBTEDLY
@Steph G lock smith is nice to, but that face and nose hard to look at
@Sinister Frog they’d never battle. but if you’d like to see them battle, in a way, listen to bad meets evil 1 & 2. royce brings out the best in em.
@Steph G I am an admirer of his freestyle. Also, he's one of the few I'd like to see battle Eminem.
"All I need is five minutes, every style get augmented, well endowed, in god's image, never smile, Kawai Leonard."
Royce is truly top 5, so underrated its sickening.
Impossible to catch most of these bars off one listen! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Idk how ya give this a thumbs down... Smh straight 🔥🔥
"Bury skulls all over the globe like a Stegasaurus" 🔥🔥🔥 prehistoric bars
One of the freestyles I come back to every couple months
my favorite part is reading other peoples favorite lyrics... and just shaking my head slowly in agreement. Appreciating other people appreciating fire.
Possibly the most underrated of this generation... GOAT in my eyes. Right up there with the best lyrically. Deserves way more praise and credit.
Definitely agreed. To me hes tha Greatest to ever do it. For so many reasons.... He literally had tha entire industry AGAINST him at one point and still fought through them all.
This is my 17th time watching this freestyle...it's the greatest freestyle in the past 10 years! The Allegory!
LEGEND!!! 'Street Hop' best rapping performance in the history of hip hop! By miles. Knocks me out every time like I'm hearing it for the first time. Work of genius!
Bro not many ppl can do what this man just did! Wow! He litterly spit intelligent fire monster bars the whole time! There was never a moment when he was just trying to ryhme! That was 11mins of pure fire spit! I worked at taco bell!!!!!! LMAO
Royce for me has always been the most underrated.
Royce been spitting pure logical conscious hiphop since i first heard him back in 1998.Been my Favorite artist ever since. Dudes a lyrical genius.
Too many quotables to mention. Royce is one of the most underrated MC's of all time.
Fun factDj premier the only person on earth that has the official ny state of mind instrumental
shut up Google-nerd
Premier is my favorite hip hop producer ever and I would travel far to see him do anything for any reason. His beats are the absolute best IMO
Cause he made it
@Blindi thats crazy... didnt know that. thx !
Whoever disliked this, does not know real hip hop music.
Sittin here wonderin who tf would ever dislike this masterpiece
"I change with the times like digital clocks." such a simple yet fire ass bar!!!
he styled on that 2nd!!! Hes in my top 5 .. He murders everything
Who’s here after Tory’s Twitter fingers?
Hell nah, what up Shaq
I’m actually here after Royce Instagram rants.
Here after your reaction
Yo what's my g...
Anyone else get chills when he said “at Godspeed!”?
ART OF MC’ING!!!! On full display for all to see.....✊🏿🔥✊🏿👩🏿🚀
Real rap is destroying mumbling rappers! 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
After 15 years of listening to rap, I finally know what it really is
Royce is the most underrated lyricist of all time.
Him and Cyhi
Nah nino bless
InsideOutMedia InsideOutMedia King Los, AZ, Lloyd Banks, Elzhi, & many others
This man is a beast. Love his flow and wordplay. Deffo top 10
Royce achieve untouchable level of rapping,legend!
3 years later and I'm still listening to this like it's my first time.
He killed it
I want a Royce shirt that says “THIS YOUR FAULT”
Here's my money. Hat, hoodie, t shirt, sweats, ETCETERA. "THIS IS ALL FLEX FAULT, BUT THIS IS LOCKE BRADY'S FAULT"
I need one in 5x please! Big Dawg style
I want one that says "baaaaaaa" cause he a goat.
The way he said "HYPOTHETICALLY" alone got me shook. And he wasn't even pointing at me 😂🐐👑
Bro look in his eyes 😂 it’s like he’s looking for the bars he’s going to say next and he finds em EVERYTIME. Classic
i'm going straight up jada and will, i come swingin, That Line RELEVANT NOW
bruh, that had me weak
Those rumors have been circulating for years before the Alsina bull.
Hes in the know!
You killed the whole studio 🔥
I sit in the original lyrical pivotal spot even though I change with the time like digital clocks. 😤🙌 royce underrated af
Not underrated, just not commercially known
Nah not these days most people who know and love HipHop rate Royce real highly top 5 real lyricists ..i think it helped his affiliation and friendship hanging with the GOAT EM...once you know Em fucks with him and rates him enough to be best friends u know 100% Royce that guy
@Liquido Suave still goes hard tho
Basic rhyme that could easily be advanced
None y’all rappers can touch this man. He is The pinnacle.
@Americo Javane 🤣🤣
Mickey Factz murdered Royce
I love how at the very beginning he's like, "Flex, whatever is about to transpire here is completely your fault. I wash my hands of whatever rhymes my tongue speaks."
I love that he stops, takes a sip, and they patiently wait cuz they know he’s just getting warmed up lol
Still gives me chills GAWDDDDD DAMMM
All I need is five minutesEvery style get augmentedWell endowed in God's imageNever smiled, Kawhi Leonard🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥That boy Nickel went tf off
2 years in and I still have to repeat this. G.O.A.T. “I’m going straight up Jada and will, I come swinging “ 🤯
That “talking to Joe, not Budden I’m talkin joe Walsh from the eagles line was a crazy concept in itself. Imagine Royce producing a song with joe Walsh riffs. Masterful
When Royce put his hand to his temple, I knew my funeral was already made from his dome. 🔥🔥🔥
Been listening to this 4 years never gets old!
Since both of them are mad, Eminem and Royce need to do another Bad Meets Evil project ASAP!
Would like, but it has 313 likes
and it happens wit the caterpillar
And have it be like the Welcome 2 Hell sequel
DaBlazinKid Word iz Bond
“But anybody who’s anybody knows the closest they’ll ever get to meeting Hov is being witnesses...” BRUHHHHH 🤯🤯🤯
@Rosendo Leal he's talking directly to Papoose Papoose dissed Royce on his Funk Flex
@stefan mendes can't be about drake bro, they've made multiple records together and peaced it up in the last couple years after their lowkey beef! "taking shots with the goat, talk about shots that we sending" - drake "survival"
@Rosendo Leal He is talking about Drake when he said that he turned in to Jay on Summer Sixteen, Royce has a lot of subs for Drake in this freestyle and other songs, the last part of the last verse was for 50
@Rosendo Leal Jay Z. One of Jay'z nicknames is JayHovah, and Hov. Wordplay on Jehovah's Witnesses.
Who is he talking about when he said this??
Had to come back here to see this after the 2020 la Leakers freestyle.....🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
Bruh he killed that beat so hard I would start calling it Kim
"Rappers blow up, then debut they whole album on ELLEN?"🥶😤😤
He was on Wendy Williams lol that’s the funny part 😂
Yo Royce is definitely one of the best MCs of all time, no question.
Rin Nohara u stupid boy
You know it’s good when you gotta re-light the blunt after the end of the video.
That 'yeah' delivery and started rappin' again...so fuckin' smooth3:40
Man that jr smith bar was CRAZY 🔥🔥
2 years later, and I jus caught this: "I'll be paralyzing U/ Like tha underscore" WOOOOOOOOOW Deadly+Still Slept On= ROYCE
No hat Royce, extremely rare
He looks clean asf without the hat to me
yeah very rare
No shades Royce is even more rare
🔥🔥🔥bodied this beat!
Phenomenal, this and the black thought one might be the two best freestyles ive ever seen
I appreciate you young g you the goat keep making music tell people abot that pain rather then go insane peace keep spitting to get the digits
"Remember they can lock your body but can't lock your mind"Never been more true!
@Lyle f%@$ck yes

i'll never get tired of NY state of mind. probably the best beat to freestyle over
flava in ya ear is good too
Malize The Merciless this and shook ones part2
One of the best people to freestyle ever. WOW!!!!
Mind blowing freestyle wow
“The closest they ever came to seeing Hov is being witnesses” 😭😭😭
Y'all are wrong he's directly talking to Papoose Papoose had dissed Royce when he did his Funk Flex
Went over my head at first
Not really. Only yours, for obvious reasons.
Who were they getting at for wearing a 'Roc Nation' hat on the Gram. 'thinking they Jay mans' ... Do y'all know? Same with that 'promoting whole album on Ellen' line - who was that aimed at?
D'Evil's - "Even if Jehovah witness, man, he'll never testify" - produced by Primo, lyrics by Jay-Z aka Hov...so many levels to that line.
First time listen to this man. He make this look like nothing
I been saying this for years but Royce still one of the most underrated rappers period
saeheem777 ikr! like how?
Premier flexin' with that NY State of Mind instrumental 💪🏾
Immortal flow and lyrics
"Standing the test of time like the leaning tower of Pisa" 🔥🔥🔥
From 8:31 is his verse from God Speed from Book Of Ryan!!Check it out... Royce deserves his respect!!Been slept on for far too long!
correct me if I'm wrong!... Royce , loaded lux and black had the best freestyles
Papoose was massively overlooked. He was up there with lux and mysonne. BT was just in a league of his own.
newzzwelive Albee Al
Nah, you on point
Again here to Pay Honor to this Masterpiece-freestyle
