Whoa, Freeway signed to Cash Money Records. Rap radar caught up with Philly Freezer moments after signing the contract.
RR: You signing to Cash Money came as a surprise.
Freeway: Man, I don’t know how that got out there like that! Like, what’s going down is I’m bout to put out this album, called the Stimulus Package. It’s with Jake One. Jake One producing the whole album. I was in Miami fucking with Baby and them, and me and Baby got a song on the album that’s called “Follow My Moves”. I been fucking with Cash Money. You know, me and Wayne did a joint for the last album, but we couldn’t get the shit cleared in time and all that. We just throwing around some ideas. And I’m launching a label, Free Money, so what better home for it.
Who approached you to joining the label?
I seen Baby in a mall. I seen him in Louis Vuitton and we was busting it up. And my man Ceelo, he worked with Baby, so he really basically connected us like that. But, right now everything is still in preliminary.
Wow, so no more Roc-A-Fella, no more Def Jam and a whole album with Jake One. Definitely an interesting move. What do you think? Will this work? How many Weezy features will he have? Will Drake and Tyga be his other features? Will he want to cut his beard after being in New Orleans in the summer? Can we get Freeway with a brass band like Soul Rebels or Rebirth?
