Termanology is the talk of the East Coast rap scene these days. Armed with top DJs like Tony Touch and Statik Selektah, he’s been flooding the circuit with mixtapes and making high profile guest appearances. Laced with beats by top producers like DJ Premier, Alchemist and M.O.P.’s Lil’ Fame, Term’s debut CD is coming soon and is sure to be a banger. And along with fellow Freestyle 101 guest Joell Ortiz, Term is reppin’ Latinos in rap and carrying on the tradition of hip hop heavyweights like B-Real, Big Pun and Fat Joe.
So it was with great honor that Freestyle 101 welcomed this ace MC, known for getting’ ill on the mic. Termanology clearly knows his hip hop history and addressed everything from the legacy of New York hip hop, to the stiff competition among today’s MCs, to the rumors of him getting signed by everyone from Eminem to Jay-Z. Young Term also had an interesting take on videogame violence, drawing parallels between what you see in the games and what you see in the streets. This is real sh*t, people. Listen up.
Freestyle 101 webisodes go live every Tuesday at noon PST. Visit us on MySpace, check out the behind-the-scenes photos, watch the archives, and visit Messiaz beatsmith Josh Achziger, who laced us with this sick beat.
