Freeway - Baby Back (The Block)

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Freeway
Producer:
Blunt
Album:
Freedom of Speech

When Freeway released his sophomore album, Free At Last, last November, widespread critical praise followed. In this era of cookie-cutter rap, Free distinguished himself as one of a few major emcees who puts his whole being into his work.  On the newest buzz single from his upcoming junior album, Freedom of Speech, the Philly veteran steps up his metaphor game by comparing The Block in his hometown to a woman; though she had been there to support him for many years, he left her once the major fame and fortune came.  Now independent once again, Free is ready to turn down all the big-time offers because he has his Baby Back.  Produced by Blunt and featuring a short interpolation of the Chili’s restaurant jingle (near the end), Baby Back (The Block) leaves no doubt that Free is loyal to his streets.
