iTunes Review

The collaboration between Seattle beat maker Jake One and Philly rapper Freeway is definitive of a new creative model for rap music: one producer from one part of the country links with a rapper from another part of the country in the service of a lean, focused album with a minimum of guests and gimmicks. The Stimulus Package is clearly meant to echo the fundamentalist values of old-school hip-hop culture without resorting to nostalgia or imitation. The songs are well crafted and straightforward, laced with vintage soul samples that don’t mimic the 2001-era old-style of Kanye West, but rather seem to conjure the voices from an earlier generation of hardworking black voices. This effect is best experienced on “Money,” in which Freeway recounts a lifetime of hustles — from sweeping hair in the barbershop to “sellin’ incense and oils to all the people there”— over a mournful sample from 24 Carat Black’s 1973 song “Poverty’s Paradise.” Freeway’s final verse from the same song epitomizes the album’s ethos.

Customer Reviews

Jake One does his thing .

Mad beats on this album. Freeway does it good but he's not good enough to hold a good track without beats by Jake One. Great album though. Would like to see some better features. Maybe Young Buck or Jay Z. I'm only saying those because he's worked with them before. But good album, Rhymesayers always does it hot and here's another one. Keep it comin! Reppin' the Twin Cities!

Freeway went back to the raw!

Actually he never left the raw ! He is one of the few hip hop artist holding down the east coAst hip hop sound! He is a classic !this Album een comes on WAx for the dj's! How hip hop is that? Freeway just brought sum excitment Back
