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. Now, it’s back for a second round. Following on the heels of reader-acclaimed contributions from ANTHM and Rich Quick, the latest installment comes courtesy of Clyde Shankle, the Berkeley-based rap buzzmaker who brought us Foto. in mid-November. On The Marina, the CaliMade Records signee shares some tightly-wound reflections on his hustle, backed by the wavy original boardwork of Thayod Ausar. Shankle’s next project, the Aglet EP, is scheduled for digital release in January of next year. As always, fans can keep their browsers locked for the latest news and tunes.
