What’s behind the sky-high Numbers Freeway boasted of racking up on his last single? Simple: when other rappers are still snoozing, he’s already out getting that dough. Premiered during a recent visit to Shade 45’s Sway in the Morning, this swaggering street banger finds heavyweight producer Just Blaze delivering a simple, yet addictive organ/vocal-sample groove as Free extols the benefits, financial and otherwise, of being awake and hustling Early in the AM. Like what you’re hearing? You can find this time-conscious cut and much more where it came from on Diamond in the Ruff, due out November 27, via Babygrande. Click here to pre-order the album on iTunes! In the meantime, fans who haven’t already can still cop the latest entry in The DJBooth’s own Re-Produced series, based around Freeway’s We Up.
