Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme (2000)

Special 20th Anniversary Directors Cut + Q&A

Voorfilm: The Art of Dance (2021, 2')

The world of improvisational rap is explosively explored in this Award Winning and Critically Acclaimed Theatrical and Broadcast TV Feature Documentary Film about the life, music, and history of 90’s underground hip hop culture! Packed with rare and archival footage of some of the most amazing MC's ever to bless the mic, FREESTYLE features the story of MC Supernatural and his quest to become a champion, battling many in his way including his arch nemesis Craig G of the famed Marley Marl Juice Crew. This dynamic documentary film takes us on a journey through the previously unexamined dimensions of hip hop as a spiritual and community based art form. Combining the best of independent art house cinema within the hip hop mixtape format, the film features legendary battles from New York to Los Angeles. The artists featured in the doc, such as Mos Def to Wu-Tang Clan to Notorious BIG, provide insight into one of the least seen faces present in music: improvisation and creativity. Structured with insights from the original Last Poets, esteemed Abioudun Oyweole, and jazz and rap historians, FREESTYLE: The Art of Rhyme connects the dots from the pain and love of yesterday's poets, to today's hip hop innovators. It reveals the art form's surprising emotional outlet: whether sharing energy in a street corner cipher for block cred, or a stadium’s commercial rap performance full of thousands of paying fans. Like the Griots of Africa or the wail of Coltrane's saxophone, today's hip hop MC's all have a similar purpose: to share their experience with others hungry for truth, community, and healing. Plus live Q&A by Organic aka director Kevin John Fitzgerald.
