Last we heard from Freeway, he was bouncing back strong from kidney failure with a new mixtape, Fear Of A Free Planet. Now the former State Property and Roc-A-Fella MC is back with “Hot As Ice,” a new single featuring Philly Freezer spitting his usual fire over church bells.
Freeway said via email that the song title is “about taking time to prosper, that it doesn’t happen overnight. The essence of the full album is simply Free Will. As human beings we’re Gods only creation and we have a choice to do right or wrong, with those choices, they affect your life and your afterlife. I touch base on many of the choices I made in my life and reveal how those choices affected me.”
“Hot As Ice” is the lead single from the aforementioned Free Will, his first proper release since 2012’s Diamond In The Ruff and his 2014 collaboration with Girl Talk, Broken Ankles. The album drops via Babygrande Records on April 29 with production by LES, Money Alwayz, Girl Talk, and Tryfe.
