It’s always easier to hate.
Freeway? Easy target. Girl Talk? That wildly successful career of his is built on the sampled work of others. That Broken Ankles even exists is kind of funny; you can just imagine the exaggerated eye roles that music snobs felt when we first heard of the project.
Let them sit the party out. We’ll just let Ankles be our little secret. From the jump, Freeway comes for the jugular, dancing through, over and around a smorgasbord of high-octane backdrops. And they bring some notable friends along for the ride: Waka, Jadakiss and Young Chris all swing by to give even more variety to the six-track project, which didn’t exactly lack in that category to begin with.
Telling is the fact that some of the EP’s highlights come towards the end, when Freeway hits back-to-back bombs. “Suicide” and “Live It” both deserve immediate inclusion into whatever April playlist you’re cooking up, thanks be to the hooks and bars.
Hit play and enjoy.
