Back in January, Kanye West and Jay-Z taught listeners everywhere that H.A.M. isn’t just something you eat for breakfast (or not, depending on your faith). Today, Freeway is here to do them one better – not satisfied with going as “Hard as a motherf*cker,” the Philly street veteran (and headliner at our unofficial SXSW showcase!) shows us what HAM Extreme sounds like on this newly-leaked album inclusion. The Pack‘s Young L handles production duties, flipping Coldplay’s The Hardest Part into a beat befitting a grind anthem (no opera samples or choral interludes here). As usual Freeway keeps it real (and halal) on the microphone, showcasing his inimitably gruff flow as he affirms his willingness to do whatever it takes to get his paper up. To keep it one-hundred, though, I’m not sure how I feel about living in a world where declarations of loyalty to the streets can exist in such close proximity to Dr. Seuss and Hoobastank references – your thoughts, Booth readers? Whatever your take on the matter, you’ll want to keep it locked for all the latest on Freeway and Diamond Supply Co.‘s Diamond in the Ruff LP, coming soon to record stores and online retailers.
