Freeway Addresses Coming On Stage At Jay-Z Press Conference In Philadelphia

Freeway addresses his presence at Jay-Z's press conference in mid-May.

Much was made of Freeway's presence on stage as Jay-Z announced via a press conference in Philadelphia that he would take part in a two-day "Made in America" art festival in the city. 

"When I out about the whole festival, and Jay was going to be in Philly, I hit him...and he said 'come down,' and that's what happened," said Freeway in an interview on BET's "106 & Park." "Before he went on stage, he tapped me like, 'C'mon,' and I went up there."

Freeway explained why he wasn't part of the photograph that Jay took with the Mayor of Philadelphia and several sponsors. "[W]hen it was time to take the picture, obviously I wasn't dressed for the occasion. So I slid to the side."

"People understand it, but nowadays with the internet, people wanna make jokes," he continued. "The jokes and everything, when people was making a joke out of it towards me, it was like cool, it was funny to me too. But as far as people trying to put it on Jay...it wasn't even like that. If you got two ounces of sense, you would know that you cannot be near Jay-Z if he don't want you to be. I was on stage with the Mayor of Philadelphia and Jay-Z. If they didn't want me there, there was no way I could've got up there."

"That's the big homie, man... I not going to come around somebody if they don't want me around, because I will feel uncomfortable."

    Freeway is one of the worst rappers ever, man; him, Buddens, Lil B, maybe Cappadonna and Silkk the Shocker. Free don't even rhyme in most of his verses. I heard him on 1 900 Hustler and was like "Damn, Biz Markie talkin gangsta but his flow is straight SHIT!" then I found out it was some nigga who's spose to be the "future" of the rap game. Then Cassidy fuckin MURDERED his ass; TWICE, just slaughtered the nigga. Only song I've ever heard that was any good from Freeway was a diss song he made about Nas & the Lox (I think it's called "I'm Upset"; starts: "Nasty Nas ain't ridin on a freeway...."). If the Mayor and Jigga wanted a Philly artist up there, why not get Black Thought? He's got skills and the image to match an Arts Festival; much more than fuckin Freeway!

  • TeeTy

    Jay-Z loves kissing white ass....He's name dropping my chemical romance and coldplay in songs, dicksucking gwenth paltrow, bill gates, ellen, warren buffet letterman...His music (BP3/Kingdom Come) is even sounding whiter...Now this. Dude is fucking brainwashed to shit on his people for them. None of them care about you...If you were a regular nigga on the street they would walk right past you. They only respect money. And freeway is stupid too for still supporting jay and acting like they both decided for him to not be in the picture...He's knows that was all jay...Scared to offend the white people. fucking jigga-boo.

      You are such an un-educated jackass. So you've totally ignored the hundreds of blalck people that Jay has name dropped over the years. Totally ignored the fact that dude went to Africa to headline a water purification system. Basically ignored the fact that dude is reaching out to everyone in order to get the culture understood by all people. You want live the rest of your life in the hood? Good luck with that! Jackass

      I love how you selectively only name the white people mentioned and deliberately ignore all the blacks he names drops and the last album he made which was about black excellence. classic confirmation bias. you believe what you want to believe and falsely confirm your beliefs based on selective information and incomplete data.

    ALL i'M saying is...if jay-z called you to come down to a event with the mayor you could have put on something a little someting better than that raggedy t-shirt and a baseball cap.

    "If you got two ounces of sense, you would know that you cannot be near Jay-Z if he don't want you to be." Sure didn't stop Lil Mama from getting on stage with Jay and Alicia.

    niggas blame jay for everything without knowing shit about the situation or how shit went down. same way they have 4 conflicting stories regarding who killed pac depending on the article. if its a puffy article, puffy killed pac. but if its its a suge article the same nigga will say suge killed pac. if it a jimmy henchman article they'll say it was jimmy. but then a week later they are saying 2pac is alive. rap fans are morons.
