Jay Z doesn’t rap much these days unless there are multi-million dollar transactions involved. Tim Westwood recently took listeners back to a period where the Jiggaman was not only the main attraction in rap but its deadliest wordsmith as well circa 1999 by sharing a previously unreleased Jay Z freestyle.

The term “freestyle” is used sparingly in this instance as longtime Jay Z fans (think when the hyphen was still in play) will recognize a chunk of the bars as building bridge for songs from his fourth studio album, Vol. 3… Life and Times of S. Carter that was released later that year.
