Artist: Freeway
Track: Paper Gangsters
Album: Free At Last

The Godfather trilogy (well, parts 1 & 2, anyway) is widely considered the quintessential gangster film series; it was only a matter of time before a major-label rapper would heavily interpolate it’s theme song, Speak Softly LoveRoc-A-Fella‘s Freeway is the first to do so on Paper Gangsters, right down to an Italian-sounding hook and Marlon Brando impression in the intro.  During the three verses, Free calls out the fakes, haters, and snitches; letting the listener know that he shares most other rappers’ contempt.  Keep an open ear for more street anthems when Free At Last is released on November 20th.
