Back in the Roc-A-Fella days, Freeway and Just Blaze were frequent collaborators. However, when the Roc fell apart, the two didn’t collaborate for a number of years, much to Free’s chagrin.
In a recent interview with VIBE, Philly Freezer spoke on the reunion between the emcee and producer. “I don’t remember exactly when but I had reached out to him and apologized for everything that happened with me getting upset with him because he wasn’t on my Free At Last album,” explained Freeway. “That was childish of me. It was actually egged on by people around me. I got nothing but respect for Just. He did a lot for me for my career; he opened up a lot of doors for me, and gave me a lot of good records. He gave me a lot of good situations like the Mariah Carey record.”
Another throwback to the Roc-A-Fella days was the Roc’s beef with Nas. Freeway revealed that he actually got to meet God’s Son. “Yeah I got a chance to meet him. Cool story, so everybody knows I dissed Nas a couple times when he was riding for Jay or whatever, but I always loved Nas’ music. But I was riding for the team no matter what. So we was at the video shoot for ‘Roc Boys’ after he and Jay got cool. We were leaving out at the same time, so I stopped him and I was like ‘Yo I love your music dawg’ and he was like ‘I love your music too.’ So he gave me a pound and we embraced each other. I just seen him in Philly a couple weeks ago performing at the Electric Factory.”
