Looking back to the days of watching The Ultimate Warrior and Jimmy Snuka flying across my Zenith in the evenings always provides a feeling of nostalgic bliss. The soundtrack to those days was amazing, although I’ll admit I only remember songs here and there. One of those songs that has managed to stay in my hippocampus (that’s a part of your brain) throughout the years is Kris Kross’ 1992 hit Jump, so of course I love to hear when new rappers add their touch to the record and other songs of that era. Today we get just that on Dee-1’s latest drop-off, a Jump (Freestyle), in which the New Orleans native goes in over the Jermaine Dupro-produced ‘90s classic. The Freestyle Series alum’s freestyle will be found on DJ Hella Yella’s, All Freestyles Vol. 1 mixtape, dropping soon. And if you find yourself in Atlanta for A3C, be sure to check out Dee-1 on our stage on October 7.
