Change Up

Just sent the homie B Dot to cop me that new Freeway (Yup YN keeps Best Buy in business). So I ripped the packaging off of my CD and I started reading the credits when I noticed only one name is listed as the album’s executive producer: Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter. No Carter Adminstration. No Curtis. Wasn’t the G-Unit general supposed to be the co-D on the EP tip? Hmmm… maybe the plans got scrapped. Word to Lil Scrappy.

      classic etherage from Etheraldinho here.

      YN gets ethered by commenters, worse than Lil Wang does by Baby, [||]

    That’s particularly interesting since Free himself seems to have been dropping 50′s name even recently as involved with the album. Interessstinggg indeed.

    that’s what i thought too. well this should be interesting. even though it doest have anything to do with it, i wonder how the sales will be. won’t be like “Philadelphia Freeway”, guarantee and that’s messed up.

    Lol @ Etheraldino

  • lea

    can someone please tell me why Joe Camel was so upset with Larry Johnson for being in Fantasia’s video (song was very HOT)and hes in Roc Boys video like some wanna be rapper? I dont get it, isnt kinda homo of them! just wondering. But i cant wait to go get Freeway!

  • Arcey

    really YN, who cares?!

    fuck executive producers, non-rappin’, non-singin’ motherfuckers can also be exec. prod. on any album.

    but really YN who cares?

    you should’ve posted something else

    Free’s album is dope…50 would have fucked it all up!

    Yo, Free’s album is sounding like a winner. I haven’t heard one subprime cut yet. And I am happy to see that Curtis ended up being an outsider on this one. Contributor or not, Free didn’t need him as EP to make a good record.

    Good to see cats can still make bangers, even without the Just Blaze and Kanye tracks.

    I’m going to bet that Free At Last will be better than The Solution.

    Not that either is going plat, but still…

    OR

    Maybe 50 didnt even give a fuck about the producer credit and just wanted the back end cash…

    THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW!

    LMAO @ I FUX – CHUUCH!

  • http://aol big stacks

    the album is pretty descent

  • H-LO

    “So I ripped the packaging off of my CD and I started reading the credits” – Vol. 3 reference?

  • G-Unit

    yO FIF dont give a shit he got the best song on the album. and 50 did make some money on this and he and free sound nice together. This is a wak post but this busta have nothing else to talk about but hate on 50 and G-Unit. They are the only group puttin out quality shit non-stop. Shout to buck, banks, yayo, 50, and the whole Unit.

    All haters need to listen to Shoot to kill. The best talent on the same cd. G-Unit has the best shit out all the time. G-Unit radio Mixtapes are better than some of these cds. Shout to Jay American Gangster is nYcE.

    G-Unit all day, fuck haters.

    • Jay

      Actually if you take a good look at the production credits you’ll see that several beats are G-Unit influenced and were made by G-Unit inhouse producers: Jake One (Its Over), Dangerous LLC (Spit That Shit), Needlz (Nuttin On Me) and Don Cannon (Walk With Me). I bet that Fif picked those.

  • PURPLE HULK

    SHUT THE FUCK UP BITCH
    UNTIL YOU CAN GIVE A DECENT ALBUM REVIEW

  • Freeway feat. Scarface joint is the best

    whoever said fif song is the best on the freeway album go kill yaself dawg. That joint with Scarface is the best cut on the album and everyone from the fuckin ATL to Houston to NYC to LA to Philly will tell you that.

  • Ali

    50 is on tha album tho…at least mention that….don’t u think that ties in to tha subject? lol

  • suan

    Did Jay-Z just Meth/Red this album? I thought it was comming out in a month. I had no idea, i haven’t even heard songs from it.

  • Chuck N.I C.E.

    Free At Last is 1 of the best albums this year. Right up there with Red Gone Wild, American Gangster & Desire (I know there are others, don’t start your shit…lol). It’s better than The Solution, which is a decent joint in it’s own right. Someone said the 50 collab on Free At Last is the best joint on the album???? They have to be joking…lol. But ultimately, The Big Doe Rehab is knocking every Hip-Hop joint that came out this year, go cop that!!!! Has anyone noticed Def Jam is responsible for putting out most of the best Hip-Hop albums this year???? I don’t hear anyone giving Jay props for that.
