Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme (2000)

I really appreciate googlevideo as a platform for rare documentaries! Thanks to whoever uploads them, that's how I imagine the internet to be: a repository for the creation and preservation of multimedia-based episodic or semantic memory.
Check out this one: Freestyle - the Art of Rhyme from 2000. One hour on the discipline of freestyle in hiphop. It features all big names in the black music and rap scene like Mos Def, Biggie, Tupac, Questlove and Black Thought, Kool Herc, Freestyle Fellowship, Eminem, and of course the Lyricist Lounge.
