Back in May of 2016, Flex cracked the mic by saying #MusicStillMatters, and did so by restarting his famous freestyle series. Many of hip-hop's finest have had moments spitting for Flex, from the entire Roc-A-Fella family to certified rhymers like Pusha T. Seemingly tired of "wack spitters" disrespecting the craft of being an MC, Flex's new freestyle series hasn't been about who has the biggest name, but who can bring the illest lyrics. With roughly 100 freestyles in this new series hitting the internet, the Complex Music Consortium dove into the latest edition of the series to bring you the cream of the crop. Run through our picks and rediscover what prime-time spitting is all about. —khal
