Back story. In 2000 I was putting together a mixtape of up and coming artists with some help from my partner Chop Diesel who was part of a production crew called The Dream Team. The majority of the freestyles were recorded at his Jersey studio where we had artists come thru and knock out the joints. One day I get to the stu and Chop introduces me to this female rapper named Antoinette aka Free. This was right before her 106th & Park fame when she was just like any other up and coming rapper trying to get in the door. At the time she was signed to Wyclef Jean’s Refugee All Stars label. Chop told her about the mixtape we we’re doing and she wanted to jump on so I was like, lets do it. I remember her being mad professional and knocked her shit out in like two takes. Joint came out ill too as she spit a quick 16 over Beanie Sigel’s The Truth instrumental. Who would’ve guessed that this girl named Free would go on to become a loved TV personality on BET.
