It’s hard to believe that Freeway‘s new album, Free Will, will be his first “solo” project since 2012’s Diamond in the Ruff (the projects in between the two have been joint efforts with Jake One, Girl Talk, and The Jacka). Free Will is shaping up to be one of Freeway’s most personal albums, as he was diagnosed with kidney disease (this will be chronicled in an upcoming documentary of the same name).
Free has revealed a new single from the album, “First Things First.” Produced by his Broken Ankles co-conspirator Girl Talk, the rock-tinged track is Free on his aggressive bully-foot while proudly proclaiming that he was one of the originators of a lot of trends that are prevalent today. He even references his Roc-A-Fella debut, “1-900-Hustler,” to boot.
Free Will drops April 29th.
