Hayley Strichman Freestyle Love Supreme
This Friday, October 17, sees New York's longest-running freestyle theatrical comedy experience, Freestyle Love Supreme, venture from the stage to the screen with the premiere of a new show on Pivot TV. After a decade of wowing audiences with top-tier freestyle rhymes and impeccable comedic timing, the gang are looking to transition their talents to this new medium with some innovative techniques that maintain the spontaneous energy of the live setting with the new freedoms a taped show allows.
We spoke to members MC Utkarsh "UTK" Ambudkar (Pitch Perfect, The Mindy Project, The Beatards) and beatboxer Chris "Shockwave" Sullivan ("The Electric Company," UCBEast's Battlicious) about hip-hop's impact on their lives and where it's taken them.
