Nas & Akinyele freestyle (1991)

Don't think this has been online before, but its something I've had for a while and never got around to posting. Nas and Akinyele trading rhymes in what I guess would be 1991 as it's similar to the lunchroom freestyles that leaked a few year ago. This session sounds like it's from a radio show but I have no idea which one.

I tried to embed the Audiomack player but it kept bringing up a Guru freestyle. Fuck knows what's going on there. It's on my Audiomack page either way.


  1. In 2007 someone shared a tape titled "Freestyle Raps #1 (Tape Kingz)" which had this freestyle. I've never seen the actual tape, so I'm not sure if it's official.

  2. i had it on a doublepack called MCs Go Wild. The other tape was Pete Rock In Control I think

  3. Really curious which radio show this is from

  4. It's from the Stretch & Bobbito show. It's on the Stretch & Bob "Freestyles" Vol.1 (1990-1992) tape put out by Fat Beats. It was also on the DJ Mike Nice mixtape "Please Listen To My Demo (2008)" labeled as "Track 03 Freestyle 1st time on the Stretch & Bob." So it would be February 14th, 1991 (Nas, Akinyele, Lord Finesse).

    1. no, pretty sure its different to those. I sent to Mike Nice ages before I posted it here and he'd never heard it
