Freeway

“Roc the Mic” had to be the best song of 2002, and aside from Beanie Sigel (where is he at by the way?), you can thank Philly rapper Freeway for gracing that track with his colorful voice.  With his big ‘ol belly and unique beard he rocked as part of his Muslim faith (look out Rozay!), Freeway wasn’t your average rapper, both physically and lyrically. His rhymes were fast and ferocious, and he would have anybody bobbing their head when he jumped on a track (check out “What We Do” for a perfect example). But after he left Roc-a-Fella during its short golden age, homeboy literally went M.I.A. He’s back now, but still, the top slot he could have been close to getting when he was with Jay is now waaaay out of his reach. Sorry, bro.
