BET's now-defunct Rap City used to be my favorite show to watch after school. More than a program that enabled you to see a slew of videos from both underground and well-known rappers, it was an outlet to watch different artists talk about their current and upcoming projects.

To me, the show's glory days were during Big Tigger's tenure hosting it. At that time, it was titled Rap City: Tha Basement, and in addition to featuring interviews and videos, it boasted a freestyle session. Before the show ended, artists who stopped by to discuss their music would step into the booth and spit a few bars. 

Around the time Three 6 Mafia had their catchy smash "Riding Spinners," they appeared on Tha Basement. And during the show's freestyle segment, the Memphis natives stepped into the booth and traded verses with Tigger over T.I.'s "24's" instrumental.
