One’s a grizzled veteran who’s seen it all, the other a precociously talented youngster only beginning to learn the ways of the game… no, I’m not describing the plot of the latest buddy-cop movie (though I’ll sell the rights to that idea if you’re buying). I’m talking about P.A., a newly-released EP cut which finds Philly mainstay Freeway and Pittsburgh buzzmaker Mac Miller coming together to celebrate their shared love for the Keystone State. Over the characteristically smooth, string-driven boardwork by Massachusetts heavyweight Statik Selektah, the collaborators (both freestyle alumni) deliver their freshest Pennsylvania-themed bars, Free focusing on braggadocio and local color (Notably, he makes the prediction “Next year’s Super Bowl: Eagles vs. Steelers”), and Miller lacing the back with engagingly-flowed wordplay. Like what you’re hearing? Freeway and Statik’s aptly-named Statik-Free EP is available for free download today (the 13th) only at ShowOffHipHop.com. Those late to the party can pick up their copy on iTunes starting tomorrow!
