Fresh off the free release of digital LP Freedom of Speech, Freeway has dropped his fourth solo studio album via Babygrande. The rapper's first retail full-length since 2010's Jake One-produced The Stimulus Package, Diamond in the Ruff packs 16 original tracks from the Philly street veteran, including Booth-approved lead single "Jungle," "Numbers" and "Early."
The project features guest appearances by Marsha Ambrosius, Musiq Soulchild, Nikki Jean, Vivian Green and Wale, with production muscle from heavy hitters Bink!, DJ Khalil, Jake One, Just Blaze and Needlz.
