Fredo Santana Keeps It Y2K With His “Oochie Wally” Freestyle

It seems like everyone is on their trap or boom bap shit, but Fredo Santana, synonymous with being “in the cut,” places himself smack in the middle of the two go-to aesthetics and gets jiggy/shiny suit era with it.

Hopping on Nas and The Braveheart’s 2000 hit “Oochie Wally,” Santana flexes some surprising lyrical dexterity by switching up the flow mid-stream to ride the beat seamlessly. Pretty wavy if you ask me.

Check the track below and hop in the Delorean back to the days of the glitz and the glam, the days before the beef … of the rap and Angus variety. And if you don’t know about the greatness that is “Oochie Wally,” then after the freestyle hit our video player up top to get familiar and inspired.
