Video of eight minute freestyle by Mysonne "The General" on DJ Funk Flex has reached 14 million views since debuting not quite 2 weeks ago. The freestyle was celebrated not only for technical skill, but for the socially conscious content that reflects Mysonne's passion for activism. It follows the success of his latest single, "That's How We On It", which earned heavy rotation on Hot 97 and Power 105 after dropping in February 2017. The independent, New York-based hip hop artist will release his next album, including "That's How We On It", in Spring 2017.
