Jay-Von goes to work on an En Vogue classic with his “Hold On Freestyle.”

Jay-Von really prides himself on being able to drop bars on any given beat. Though the Picture My Vision emcee tends to go in the most over classic rap instrumentals, Vonzilla’s not afraid to do work over R&B beats, either. After all, in 2016, he made short work of Erykah Badu’s “On & On.”

A week ago, Jay-Von and a few of his peer emcees brought the pain. This past Friday, however, for the latest inductee in his Freestyle Friday series, Jay-Von went back to the ’90s R&B, taking on En Vogue’s timeless “Hold On” track. DJ MoSama oversees it all once more, with Relli on the beat reviving the instrumental in 2018.

“I ain’t gon do too much talkin’ on this one,” Jay-Von promises before he even starts, and he’s a man of his word. The Mo. City emcee only needs two minutes to do what he does on his “Hold On Freestyle.” He anoints his flow as superior. He chain-links a clever reference to fashion brands like Kenneth Cole and Tom Ford in the freestyle’s final set of bars, literally using “clothes” to close. And while some lines may make listeners chuckle, Von once again makes it plain that rapping has never been a laughing matter to him. “I’m bringin’ you n*ggas pressure,” Von assures, “layin’ em on a stretcher.”

Take a listen to Jay-Von’s “Hold On Freestyle,” presented by DJ MoSama and produced by Relli, down below.
