Armed with some of their most dynamic and engaging work to date, Philadelphia-based rapper Freeway and producer Jake One are seizing the moment and setting out to stimulate the hip-hop economy with three album release parties in New York, Boston, and Philadelphia. The heralded collaboration, The Stimulus Package, marks Freeway’s third official album and his first release for Rhymesayers Entertainment, voted best label of the decade by URB Magazine. The album features cameos from industry heavy-weights Beanie Sigel, Bun B, Raekwon, Birdman & more and is already garnering attention as one of the strongest releases this year. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 15th 2010.
Freeway will take the stage with the Roots on Monday, March 15th on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon!
