(AllHipHop News) The Roc was in the building during Jay Z’s exclusive B-Sides concert for Tidal. The NYC emcee was joined on stage by his former Roc-A-Fella Records team of Beanie Sigel, Memphis Bleek, and Freeway.
BET caught up with Freeway, and the Philadelphia native spoke about reuniting with the Roc Boys. Free said:
Aw man, it felt like a million bucks. It was a great feeling to be back out there with my brothers and rock out with the fam. It almost brought a tear to my eye. That was the foundation that I built my career on. It was a great feeling. I know the fans appreciate it, because everywhere I go they ask, “Wassup with the Roc? When are y’all getting back together? When y’all doin’ this? When y’all doin’ that?” So for us to get back together to perform was a great thing.
Freeway revealed Jay called him about participating at the B-Sides concert, and he jumped at the chance to get back on stage with the old crew. He also teased a relaunch of the Roc-A-Fella dynasty could be in the works.
Besides rocking with Hov and Beans again, Free has also been very active with the Freddie Gray inspired protests in Baltimore, Maryland in recent weeks. The “What We Do” rapper visited the city and met with Gray’s family. Freeway spoke about his experience in Baltimore:
It was, you know, surreal. I got there early in the morning before the cameras and security and all that was out there. I went to their hood, I went to their projects. I was with Freddie’s cousin, godbrother. I walked through their neighborhood and listened to some of the issues that they had. Basically, it was just talking to the people. It was good to get their point of view of everything, telling me how the media was blowing everything up making it seem like just a bunch of people going crazy. They were telling me that, if you notice, the main thing that the people were stealing when they were looting was basic necessities. Like, they were stealing clothes and water and food — stuff that they need.
