Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries came courtesy of a veritable who’s-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars like Kendrick Lamar, Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller. After more than two years’ hiatus, we’re proud to inaugurate the series’ second chapter with Dark Horse Rising, an exclusive freestyle from Manhattan buzzmaker ANTHM. Coming on the heels of Henny (AMGMix), this cut features the unsigned rhymesayer spitting rapid-fire, politically-charged bars over original boardwork by BXHXLD. If you’re craving more from ANTHM, you can stream and download his two latest projects, July’s The Fire Next Time tape and March’s Handful of Dust EP, for free on our pages. And, of course, be sure to tune in next Tuesday for the second entry in our newly-relaunched series.
