Roc-A-Fella rapper Freeway is hard at work on his upcoming album Free At Last, co-executive produced by longtime friend and Def Jam CEO Jay-Z and G-Unit President 50 Cent.
The album is slated to drop July 25 and features guest appearances by several Roc-A-Fella and G-Unit members, including 50 Cent, Young Buck and State Property.
Other rappers that have already recorded for the album include Scarface, Jay-Z and Kanye West. In addition to the major collaborations, the project will feature production by West, Just Blaze, Chad Wes, Scott Storch, Dangerous LLC and Needlz, among others.
“Freeway is like 85 percent done,” Freeway’s manager Ryan Press, of Press Conference Management, told AllHipHop.com about the progress of the album. “You can check that out at freewayatlast.com.”
Freeway is also currently working with Philly-bred and Atlanta-based mixtape king DJ Drama to produce a Gangsta Grillz mixtape, which should drop sometime in May.
The rapper has also been in dealings with other members of the mixtape scene, including G-Unit’s own DJ Whoo Kid.
“We just recently put the Freeway, Whoo Kid mixtape out,” said Press. “We are [also] starting a mixtape mini-tour with Freeway, Whoo Kid and others.”
The tour kicks off this Friday (April 28) in New Jersey, with the album release of Yung Kha Queet-o.
The show will take place at Brokers nightclub and will feature live performances by Freeway and Diplomats/Koch Records’ new artist JR. Writer, along with music by DJ Whoo Kid.
