Instant honorable mention for our album covers of the year list. Freeway’s in the Christmas spirit, and who better to embody the Santa image than the bearded wonder (as seen by the image above). Free already released two solid projects in the waning months of a year and is just adding to the pedigree at this point. The Black Santa EP is one final 2012 release from the revitalized Philly emcee and most notable features the recently released Jake One-produced “Roc Reloaded” with a mini State Property reunion. NBAers Rasheed Wallace and Iman Shumpert also have appearances as well.
I’ll leave you fine folks with one final thought. With the multiple State Property appearances, ranging from Jay-Z’s “Made In America” festival to smaller events like popping up on MTV Rapfix Live, I have a feeling that next year just might be the time for a full-on resurgence.
