Roc-a-Fella/Def Jam artist Freeway has begun a December Month of Madness, where the Philly emcee will release a song per day for the entire month.
The new project comes one year after the release of his critically acclaimed sophomore album Free At Last, which was executive produced by Jay-Z and 50 Cent.
Christening the 31 song blitz The Freeway Change, the rapper aims to counteract a Hip-Hop culture he feels has become more dependent on sales, marketing and imaging, rather than the quality and value of the music itself.
Still, Freeway remains optimistic that his move will set a precedent among other artists to bypass the corporate red tape of major labels to put their art unaltered directly in the hands of the people.
During the month, Freeway will pay close attention to fan feedback and adjust his content accordingly.
If successful, he plans to follow up with another “Month of Madness” or possibly a full length LP/album.
The songs can be downloaded at no charge each day from Frees own website, http://www.thefreewaychange.com.
The first song, aptly titled Month of Madness, is available for download today (December 1).
