Brooklyn, New York’s Pack FM hates rappers. In fact the title of his upcoming QN5 Music album is I F***ing Hate Rappers, so there’s no debating this point. And he has reason to, given that his rhymes and flow put most rappers to shame, as is evident on his current album WhutduzFMstand4? and EP Baby Blue for Pink.
Known for his street single "Stomp" and the graffiti anthem "Click Clack Spray" off the Marc Ecko Getting Up soundtrack, the one-time 88HipHop MC Battle Champion was the last man standing out of 32 MC's in the Braggin' Rites tournament. In 1999 he swept the competition at Next Generation Battle at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe. He also won the TDK sponsored 24 Hour MC Battle for three months in a row. In 2000, he was a finalist in the Rock Steady Crew's annual MC Battle, and then placed 2nd out of 100 MCs in the Source Magazine's Unsigned Hype Live MC Battle Tournament. Pack even appeared in the acclaimed independent film Freestyle alongside Pharoahe Monch, Mos Def, Supernatural, Biggie and Tupac.
In fact, this dude is so serious about freestyling he came all the way down to Cali just to tape a Freestyle 101 and do a few shows to show the west coast what he’s all about. Yup, Pack FM cruised into The Engine Room in Hollywood to flow deep over a dope Messiaz beat and chat about the record stores and websites that made New York famous, leaving all of us with our jaws hanging. This is a real rapper’s rapper, no doubt.
Freestyle 101 goes up at 9 a.m. PST (that’s noon over on the east) every Tuesday Next week we bring you a very special April Fools episode, followed by killers from Ice-T, Buckshot, Ali Vegas, Smooth da Hustler, Big Noyd, Kool Keith, B-Real, The Alkaholiks reunion and many more.
