“Shortest Freestyle Ever” is less than a minute-long, but it showcases the strength and talent of Rap Legend 205 as both a rapper and lyricist. The lyrics are reminiscent of other hit rap songs of the past, and the song itself wouldn’t be out of place with a top 20s hit.

His recent single “Shortest Freestyle Ever” further establishes that there is no one quite like Rap Legend 205 in the game.
