Crooked I: Internet (Freestyle)

Per XXL's print magazine of Sept. 2008: The Year of POLITICS & BULLSH#T:
Long Beach, California native created one of the biggest buzzes as he leaked a new song every week for an entire year under the "Hip-Hop Weekly" banner.
Crooked I. CI freestyled the following relative how the internet affected him and Hip-Hop in general. Below are my favorite excerpts, of a MC that I had not previously bothered to entertain and rather read his lyrics than listen to, of the aforementioned:

If I blow your memory on ya spine, will you think back?/
To a time when cassette tapes were shrink-wrapped/
Before you miniature midgets started to shrink rap/
Now everybody's an MC, I even heard a shrink rap/

Nas needed one mic, all I need is on site
