Tha Free World are a group of battle rappers (six rappers). They are the supporting antagonists of the movie, and they haze B-Rabbit's Crew (The 313) in the movie often, both by battle rapping and physical violence. One member even threatened B-Rabbit with it.

Biography[]

Tha Free World gang appears briefly for the first time at the beginning of the movie during the cypher at The Shelter when Future's boy, "Shorty Mike", is battling Papa Doc. They can also be seen later laughing and making fun of B-Rabbit after he fails to battle against the rapper Lil' Tic. They appear in the parking lot, heckling the 313 and other rappers there. When Lyckety-Splyt makes fun of B-Rabbit for his "choke act" last night, B-Rabbit attacks him and a fight ensues.

It ends up in a draw, when Wink makes both teams stop fighting, as he is friends with both crews. They are later seen on the street, where B-Rabbit punches Lotto resulting in a fight. The fight is stopped when Cheddar Bob accidentally shoots himself in the leg. Later on in the movie, B-Rabbit's lover Alex cheats on him with Wink, and B-Rabbit beats him up. Because of this, Wink leaves B-Rabbit's crew and gives his full loyalty to The Leaders of the Free World, who go on to get revenge by jumping B-Rabbit.

At the end of the movie, Three Members of the crew rap battles B-Rabbit at The Shelter, but B-Rabbit easily defeats them all, prompting The Leaders of the Free World to leave and the audience chanting "313 F**k Free World"
