This is just sick.

Do you think he did this off the top, or was this rehearsed. I mean regardless, Astro is nice and I don’t take nothing away from him…but no way is that an impromptu freestyle.

October 25th, 2013

I know it wasnt a freestyle but if doesnt matter to me cause freestyle or not this is fucking ill.

Obviously written, I don’t know you guys are even questioning it. But definitely a dope ass verse, kids a lyricist fareeal.

@YoungNiggaHustlin @Alpha-Q-Up The reason I bring it up is because although it’s a 100% dope verse don’t you think it’s kinda UNFAIR when you spit written shit for a freestyle. Maybe it’s just me, but when I hear the word “FREESTYLE” I adjust myself accordingly and i ease up on judging because I take into consideration that you’re coming off the top. Because what is freestyle dope is not written dope. It’s like playing a pickup game with your girlfriend…you know you don’t have to take it that serious because she’s your girlfriend and you’ll look quite lame balling all out like she’s a nigga. I just feel if something is a freestyle you should freestyle so someone can see how nice you are off the top. Don’t bring out the tomahawk dunks when niggas ain’t even playing like that, that’s all i’m saying. I remember people giving Drake alot shit for reading his bars off his phone, but what’s the difference between that and pretending like your freestyle ain’t a pre write.

No rustled jimmies on my downvote, butttttt seriously guys? Isn’t doing pre-writes on freestyles like GOING HELLA HARD at the NBA All Star game, if all the best in the league are just playing for fun and you decided this is the night you gonna drop 50 on niggas and teabag dunk dudes left and right, no one is gonna say you’re the GOAT nba baller. I’m not saying Astro isn’t talented, he has tremendous potential and the work ethic is dope. But I’m just saying people will tell rappers to retire when they freestyle something mediocre on a radio show, but at least they were actually going off the dome. All I’m saying is go hard all the time, don’t just go hard when the standards are lowered.

“ Astro isn’t talented ”

Yo you my nigga and all but i have to disagree with this 100 percent. At that age being able to rap like that is outstanding. His “tremendous potential and work ethic” got his ass that talent. He wasnt just naturally born with the skill. He was born with high interest in the art. And in term of “Go hard or go Home” He did go hard. The reason being people dont go as hard as they do on radio freestyles is because either..

  1. they suck

  2. they dont take radio freestyles seriously ( One whos famous for that is earl sweatshirt)

  3. Had no time to compose a good verse specifically for that radio freestyle.

If i was astro i would sure as hell go HAM on a radio freestyle because if i saw a video thumbnail on youtube with a kid who lookin like he 12 named astro i wouldnt watch that shit. But with him promoting his skill on live radio to niggas who never heard of him will help him reach out to greater audiences because a random ass nigga could be driving home from work one day and hear this nigga on the radio and be like “ Damn i fuck with this lemme check more of his shit out when i got home.”

Great use of promotion.

I think Astro has great potential as an artist and his been improving and growing considerably as of late.

People may not like his old-school type sound as it can seem to be “gimmicky” but I believe he’ll find his own style soon enough!

October 26th, 2013

@YoungNiggaHustlin Young Bull, you drawlin now hahaha….you my nigga to but you grossly misread my shit. Astro is talented, I remember watching the freestyle way before this and I was saying to myself is this that the kid from the X-Factor…sheeeit, dude has crazy bars. But I see what you’re saying from the promotion point of view to go all out on a freestyle. That makes sense, niggas gotta eat at the end of the day. But you brought up a good point. Yeah most niggas suck and there isn’t no way around that…but if a lyrical cat like Earl can’t bring his a game to free style, that doesn’t mean he can’t rap, he’s just ass at freestyling. And if it’s a freestyle, you shouldn’t have anytime to compose a verse because IT’S A FREESTYLE!!!! It’s display of your prowess at creativity and improvisation… not memory and recitation.

Astro fucking killed it. I’ve always have sort of been a fan since I’d seed him tear it up on X factor. Him being on the show (plus his egotistical persona he exuded while being on the show) has always kept me from thinking of his as an MC to take seriously. This and some of his other recent work has brought me to the realization that Astro is a true MC.

Even though it is written, he flows through a long ass take without slipping up once. And bar after bar he drops the illest shit.

And the only argument I have for hipster who wants to hate is:

Those triplets tho…
