The Best Freestyle Music Groups/Artists

Rising to prominence in the mid-1980s, freestyle music features many qualities that are associated with electronic dance music and dance-pop. Also nicknamed Latin hip hop, the best freestyle artists hit the mainstream and have managed to have a few top-40 hits. However, for the most part, people who love freestyle use freestyle music to breakdance to. Thus, the best freestyle artists have their music closely associated with modern hip hop as well due to sampling. Freestyle remains popular in New York City and though it isn't the force it once was, the best freestyle artists are still beloved by their fans.

So, that said, who are the best freestyle artists? Any list of freestyle musicians has to include the likes of Stevie B., Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam, TKA, Brenda K. Starr, John Benitez and Stacey Q. If you're familiar with freestyle music and are a huge fan, then you should know which artists to vote for. Freestyle singers may encapsulate a particular period in music history, but their music still lives on in dance music. If not for the embracing of this type of electro music, dance music may not have been as big as it was. For that, they can thank the best freestyle artists.

It's up to you to determine what are the best freestyle artists. If you notice someone who is missing, feel free to add them to this list.  This list answers the questions "who are the best freestyle music bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest freestyle music musician ever?" If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular freestyle music bands that you might've heard of.
