Freestyles Are still free -- or freeze, as the case may be. Ask Turner Jackson and Joe Thunder.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

So this little gem showed up on our doorstep this morning -- or, rather, in our parking lot last night. We've been hearing about Turner Jackson's whole Freestyles Are Still Free project that he's been working on, in which he traipsed around town last summer wearing a sandwich board and rapping off the top of his head for anybody and everybody.

We've been bugging Joe Thunder, who filmed the whole thing, for a glimpse. Evidently, there's quite a bit of footage, which he hasn't gotten around to editing yet. So Thunder and Jackson did us one better and braved the elements last night and filmed a freestyle exclusive for us in front of the Westword sign. (Thanks, fellas!) Check it out below.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
