Freeway's next album Think Free is slated to drop soon, so he stopped by Funkmaster Flex’s Hot 97 show to announce the day of its release, on June 8. He also reminded listeners just how well Free can kick a freestyle, and that he is, indeed, “the flyest nigga on dialysis.”
But before he even got to spit, Pain In Da Ass delivered a strong sermon, introducing Free the right way. “We’re gonna take it back,” Pain said. “Life hit us pretty hard recently, health issues and all, but like Free told me, ‘It ain’t about how hard they hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.’
He continued, “Now if you know what you’re worth, go out and get what you’re worth, but you gotta be willing to take the hits. Not like these other suckers, [pointing] fingers at everybody ‘cause they didn’t make it. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that.”
Freeway then launched into a six minute freestyle, over the beat to Fabolous and Jadakiss’ 2017 song “Soul Food,” where Free touched on his kidney failure, Roc Nation, growing up in Philadelphia, his run at Roc-A-Fella Records, and more.
He ended the freestyle with a shoutout to Meek Mill, who's currently incarcerated for a probation violation: “I’m watching channel six, trying to see how you made out / First the eagles done it, Villanova did it / six is up next, nigga we coming for the chip / I’m from Philly where the feens got skills / out the window of the truck, screamin’ ‘Free Meek Mill!’”
