Pitchfork Introduces New Hip-Hop Series

March 22, 2010

(via P4K)

Pitchfork’s latest series, titled “Selector”, takes a hip-hop touchstone, the front-stoop freestyle, and pushes it in interesting new directions.

For each installment, we offer a rapper two different beats, and they pick one as the backing track for a freestyle. These beats, produced by indie artists, aren’t the type of thing we often hear rappers use for freestyles. Each episode of “Selector” is filmed on a New York City neighborhood location.

On the premiere episode, Virginia rap heroes Clipse pick between tracks by the Very Best and DOOM.
