Album Review

Still grinding after ten years in the game, the former Roc-a-Fella artist continues to hustle after moving from Rhymesayers to the independent N.Y.C. label Babygrande Records. For his fourth album, Leslie Pridgen, better known as Freeway, collaborates with former producers Just Blaze and Jake One on some of the best cuts on the record, including the hard-hitting old-school flashback “Early,” and the dreamy ode to the perfect girl, “True,” which features a guest spot by Wale.

Even when the production fails to inspire, he holds up his end of the bargain on the mike.
