Freestyle 101: Cormega »


Hip hop heads first heard of Queensbridge, New York rapper Cormega when Nas shouted him out on "One Love" on 1994's Illmatic then put him on "Affirmative Action" on the follow-up, It Was Written. Industry politics kept his debut album, The Testament, from being released until almost a decade after being recorded, so fans didn’t get an official debut from the MC until 2001’s The Realness. He followed with True Meaning, the rarities collection Hustler/Rapper, and the compilation Legal Hustle. Since then he has released a collaboration album with Lake called My Brother's Keeper, has an all-instrumental collection called The Legal Hustle Presents Got Beats out on October 23, and a CD/DVD entitled Who Am I? out on November 20.

So to say Freestyle 101 was honored to have this mega-talent stop by and kick an impromptu rhyme over a stoney Messiaz beat is truly an understatement. During a rare trip through L.A., ‘Mega was kind enough to stop by Reef Studios and we have the pics to prove it on our behind-the-scenes photo gallery. You can rant and rave about them in the Freestyle Forums.

Stay tuned for future Freestyle 101s with Master P and Romeo, Bizarre of D-12, Glasses Malone, Myka 9 of Freestyle Fellowship, and many more every Tuesday at 3 p.m. EST. Plus, check us out in the new Apple Nano commercial and the mention in Steve Jobs’ Apple recent keynote speech.
