Let us introduce our newest webseries Freestyle, featuring clips from Freestyle: The Art of Rhyme!

In this early sequence we see how freestyling traces its origins to spirituality, a theme which runs throughout the rest of the movie.

The Making of Freestyle

I was first introduced to Freestyling at a National Poetry Slam event where I was promoting my movie SlamNation.  The accomplished hip hop artist, Sage Francis, who was also a slam poet at the time, busted into a rap at a daytime showcase. He was so polished and seamless that he was half way into his performance before I realized that it was completely improvisational, interacting with the environment and the people in the audience. I was blown away!
