Freestyle Friday Finale on 106 & Park
« on: June 11, 2008, 02:13:01 pm »
I watched Freestyle Friday Finale last Friday and I was very disappointed. The segment didn't quite measure up to past Freestyle Fridays that were more exciting and memorable. I know the format was altered because things were getting out of hand language wise, not to mention a physical altercation between two contestants but when the format was changed the result was a bargain basement version of American Idol. Come on now! Rap for the most part has always been a competitive artform and it disappoints me BET diluted Freestyle Friday. It's like Kool Aid without sugar. Still colorful, but no flavor.


Normally I don't give TV idea suggestions on message boards, but I"m going to make an exception. Return the orginal format of Freestyle Friday, but have it take place in a ring with the competition going three rounds. Put a referee in the fray to maintain order and let the participant know that if they break the rules, they'll shut off the contestant's mic. 

I can't think of any other ideas at the present but I'll come back and post as I think of them.

The ref idea sounds pretty workable to me, P.F.

Heads need to respect the venue they are at at the very least.

Yeah Jinn had an album. The fact that no one remembers it should tell you how it was received.
