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. The fifth entry in the recently-relaunched series comes courtesy of Fundament, the Toronto rhymesayer who earned reader acclaim for Magnifying Glass back in October of 2013. On Distilled, Da-P‘s ambient synths and heavily-syncopated percussion set the stage for tongue-twisting bars forecasting the emcee’s future success in the game (“I told DJ Z I’m gonna be Jay Z by 2018.”). Fundament has yet to announce his plans for the new year, but fans can hear more from him on the recent, DJBooth-hosted Fundament x Fameless EP.
