5. “Lil Snupe Skit”
This freestyle from Lil Snupe made the cut partially because it was a somewhat unconventional track. Snupe, the promising 18-year rapper and Meek Mill protégé who was murdered in June, flows easily over the beat, but unfortunately his voice is mixed poorly. We hoped for his star-making “Come Up Show” freestyle, where he was reminiscent of a more technically gifted Kanye West wearing a polo rugby, flocked around some of the best rappers in Philadelphia (for 'Ye, it was Beanie Sigel), and stealing the show. The lo-fi freestyle serves as a sad reminder of the life and potential lost.
