When one thinks of hip hop hotbeds, they usually list New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, Chicago or Philly. But...Palmdale, Calif.?
Yes, hip hop lives even in the sweltering hot deserts of Palmdale, where rapper R.N.S. learned to flow. Though he recently moved to Los Angeles, R.N.S. still carries the heat and hunger of coming up on the fringes of the Hollywood scene. And along with being a master MC, R.N.S. is a spectacular beatmaker, having recently taken the lead on Rocbattle.com where he pits his beats against other producers around the world.
R.N.S. was kind enough to stop by G4tv to lace us with a rhyme about the rules of freestyling and what it takes to run the spit game. R.N.S. stands for "rhythm 'n' strategy," and one look at this cat in action and you’ll see why.
A new Freestyle 101 goes up every Tuesday at 3:00 pm ET (that’s noon on the west coast). Next up is Neila, then Spider Loc of G-Unit, Sean Kingston, Master P and Romeo, Bizarre of D-12, Myka 9 of Freestyle Fellowship, and many more. Check out our behind-the-scenes photo gallery, peep us on MySpace and visit our beatmasters, Messiaz.
