The 50 Best Radio Freestyles

43. Snoop & Xzibit "New York City Freestyle" (1999)

Station: Hot 97
DJ: Funkmaster Flex
Best Punchline: “It ain't East or West, I want the whole world behind me/I've got brothers in L.A. saying eff Giuliani.” (Xzibit)


In the Fall of 1999, while on the promo trail for Dr. Dre's 2001, Xzbit and Snoop Dogg dropped by Funkmaster Flex's show on Hot 97 to bless the airwaves with their West Coast flow. Oddly enough, Dre wasn't in attendance, but who really wants to hear Dre freestlye anyway?

X-to-the-Z's career was having a resurgence thanks to his appearance on Snoop's single “Bitch Please,” so the two celebrated with a nine-minute freestyle over some of the best beats of the 1-9-9-9. And there's no better way to date that era than hearing Snoop shout out No Limit Records while X shows solidarity with the NYC hip-hop community: “I've got brothers in LA saying F Giuliani.” Still in Snoopafella mode, Snoop kicked one of his patented fairy-tale rhymes about a turned-out Little Red Riding Hood (No Ray J) and the Big Bad Wolf having a nasty blow habit.
