The Free Houdini (styled theFREEhoudini) is the mixtape by American underground hip hop duo Themselves.

It is a return after a six-year hiatus that saw the members spend the majority of their time on their other band Subtle.[1] The album was made available for 90 days as a one track mp3 for download from the Anticon website, later released in a deluxe CD package.

On a sampler of tracks from the album that was available for download from Pitchfork Media, you can hear that the song "Rapping 4 Money" is built from a sample of the Shel Silverstein song "Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout (Would Not Take The Garbage Out)".
