Jay Z – Tim Westwood Freestyle (2000)

Westwood drops off some vintage Hov for this week’s Throwback Thursday drop. This was recorded circa 2000, during the era when you could still spit a freestyle overseas and safely assume nobody in the US would hear it for months, if ever. And so Jay ended up recycling many of these bars on his “Who Shot Ya” Freestyle for DJ Clue, and on DMX’s “Blackout.” Listen and download below.
