Taking place as a main feature of Sir Spyro‘s BBC 1Xtra shows, the Sounds of the Verse freestyle series acted as the ultimate test of freestyling ability at the time. Inviting down some of the hardest in the scene, both veterans and up and comers, Spyro would give each MC 140 seconds to prove themselves over a fresh 140bpm beat.

With some legendary freestyles in the series we thought we would take a look back at some of our favourites and here’s what we found:
