VIDEO: Big Pun, DMX, Mos Def, and Canibus Freestyle Battle

This video popped up through a friend of a friend and while the exact date of the footage is not known, check out this roundtable turned freestyle battleground featuring some rap legends at their best!

THE CONTENDERS

MOS DEF – (Brooklyn, NY) Regarding as one of the most introspective and insightful rap artists of all time, Yasiin Bey is an American hip hop recording artist, actor, and activist also seen heavily as the host of “Def Poetry” for 5 years. (2002-2007)

DMX – (Yonkers, NY) Known also as “Dark Man X”, Earl Simmons is a rapper and actor known by his signature “barking” throughout his music, although we only hear a slight growl in this video from X.

BIG PUN – (The Bronx, NY) “Big Punisher” is an American rapper and actor who emerged from the underground hip hop scene in the 90’s. Christopher Lee Rios, who is my favorite from the four “performances” in this video, died in White Plains, NY in 2000, but has been named one of raps “Top 22 Greatest MC’s” by MTV2.

CANIBUS – (Kingston, Jamaica) Germaine Williams, is a Jamaican-American rapper and actor featured as the last artist in the video. While he may be the least recognized face to many out of the four artists in the footage, he carries his own.
