What Is Freestyle Mondays?
Since 2001, it’s New York’s epicenter for freestyle rhymes and good times. The last surviving Bastian of the NYC Rawkus-era Hip-Hop, Freestyle Mondays is an open mic as diverse and engaging as the city that birthed it. MCs come from all over the world to spontaneously bless the crowd with impromptu rhyme schemes while backed by some of the city’s most gifted musicians recreating the most beloved beats in rap history. It’s a weekly event that’s faithful to the past while boldly stepping into the future.
