Timeflies Detroit Themed Freestyle At AMP Live 2013

On Sunday we hosted AMP Live 2013 at Meadow Brook Music Festival and if you weren’t there, you missed out! Zedd, Carly Rae Jepsen, Emblem 3, Cher Lloyd, Jessica Sanchez and Timeflies all performed live in front of a packed house.

I had the chance to catch up with Timeflies before the show and I gave front man Cal a list of Detroit themed keywords. Videos have shown up all over YouTube of him doing these Freestyles in every city they visit and I wanted to make sure Detroit was one. The list of words included a few key landmarks, along with sports teams and other local pop culture related things.

The cool part was, before Cal did his freestyle to the ‘Space Jam’ track, he’d never saw the words on this list. Check out the amazing job Cal did with his unwritten rap at AMP Live below.

Thanks to Ashley for posting her video on YouTube.
