From classic Source Award show footage, to exclusive freestyles, interviews and game shows, The Source‘s archives are filled with things for everyone, from the casual Hip-Hop fan to the nerdiest of the purists.
Every Thursday, as part of #SourceTBT we at The Source will dig deep into our archives and re-visit interesting and funny classic footage, and this week we take you front row at The Source Awards, when Da Brat stumbled upon on Floyd Mayweather‘s gaudier chains.
What do you think is going to happen when you wanna challenge the Dungeon Dragon on his home turf?
Some guy at Uniondale High School in Long Island, NY decided that he would make a valiant attempt at building a career by battling Buss a Bus in the hallway of the former LONS frontman’s former high school. As seen in the video, Busta takes these types of challenges seriously and this footage proves why the Dragon is still one of the greatest in this game to still do it.
Many moons ago, Marshall Mathers hit up Tim Westwood‘s studio while out and about in the UK back in 2009. With Alchemist on the decks, Em spits 50-65,000, maybe even 100,000 insane bars back to back to back. This man’s wordplay and skill-set have never been, and should/will never be, contested. There’s a reason nobody wants to battle him, they’re smart. This video is comprised of some freestyles with a couple written lines in there as well, but as a whole it embodies who Eminem is and why he is so respected today. The many is a lyrical genius and if you believe otherwise, you’re on the wrong site, buddy. Insane wordplay, alliteration and rhyme schemes, watch the full video below.
Side note: Tim Westwood is, quite notably, the man over in the UK, as far as Hip Hop is concerned. He runs it all and owns his position. Look him up.
