Freeway is excited to announce the release of his newest album, Diamond In the Ruff, out now via Babygrande Records. The highly anticipated album features appearances from Wale, Marsha Ambrosius, Vivian Green, Neef, and more as well as production by Just Blaze, Jake One, Bink!, Needlz, and others.
To accompany today's album release, Freeway is releasing the album's latest single, "True." The song, premiered by FADER, which features Maybach Music Group rapper Wale, and is produced by Jake One and DJ Khalil, is built around the two producers' lush instrumentation and crisp drums, falling easily behind the chorus' crooned vocals, "Behind every strong man is a woman." Free and Wale stick to the script, trading bars throughout about the objects of their desire. "Wendy's drive-through/ She got me open nights," raps Freeway. "Know how to work the mic/ Plus she ride, too."
Pac Div, the West Coast triple threat composed of Mibbs, Like, and BeYoung, is releasing their sophomore album, GMB, via The Div Co. and RBC Records today. GMB, which is vowed to be their most heavy hitting release to date, is now available for purchase on iTunes. To celebrate the album release this morning, Rolling Stone premiered the Div's latest video, "Black Acura" featuring Mac Miller.
GMB is a seventeen-track experience chronicling the lives of Mibbs, Like, and BeYoung as they help marshal in Los Angeles hip-hop's second renaissance. The trio unite with other notable proliferators of this LA resurgence, including Kendrick Lamar and Blu on the single "Cross Trainers" and Ty$ on "The Return," and aim to reestablish themselves, and their city, as the ruling class of rap. "Bottom line, Pac Div is back," says Mibbs. "LA is back. We never left. We just continue to get stronger with every release and that will never stop.
It's not exclusively an LA affair however; for "Black Acura," Pac Div call upon their Pittsburgh homie Mac Miller to lay down a couple uncharacteristic bars, and to use his house for some of this video. "Chillin' at Mac's LA crib was fun while filming, it brought back the Blue Slide Park Tour memories," remarked Mibbs. Making the laundromat, a living room, and a dank bar look like reasonable places to start a rap career, the guys have an air of comfortable superiority in this first video from GMB, directed by Austin Winchell. "The energy behind this song has a very laid back yet aggressive feel," says Mibbs. "It's a perfect medium for what we wanted to convey to the fans: a quiet cockiness."
