Freeway Drops Christmas EP, ‘Black Santa’
Ho! Ho! Ho! The bearded rapper Freeway gives fans a Christmas present with a new EP called ‘Black Santa.’ If you’re looking for some street-worthy yuletide bangers than this is the perfect download to keep your head nodding throughout the holiday season.
For the EP, the Philadelphia emcee enlists Rasheed Wallace and Gillie Da Kid, plus, reunites with Roc-a-Fella Records alums Young Chris, Neef Buck, Bleek and Peedi Crackk. On the production end, producers Statik Selektah, Jake One, DJ SNS, Jumbo Beats, Dilemma and others give Freeway some incredible beats. The project was mixed by DJ Benja Styles.
Philly Freezer kicks it off with a melodic Christmas-themed tune ‘Black Santa’ as he reflects on his life and family. “Under the tree filled up with gifts from grandma / Drawers, T-shirts, tube socks from my aunt / Clothes were little bummy / Didn’t have a lot of money / But I was blessed, I still have both of my parents,” he raps.
Elsewhere, Freeway spits crazy rhymes on the Kenny Loggins-sampled ‘This Is It’ and gets turnt up on ‘With or ‘Without.’ Freeway finishes the EP on a high note with the ‘Roc Reunion’ (featuring Chris, Neef, Bleek and Peedi), which also boasts a cameo from funnyman Pain in da Ass mimicking Al Pacino’s characters from ‘Scarface’ and ‘Carlito’s Way.’ Okay, he’s reloaded!
Christmas just got colder thanks to Freeway.
