When Freeway announced Diamond in the Ruff back in 2010, he was mindful of returning to the early days of his rhyme galore, high-octane delivery. And he clearly does so in his fourth solo output. By now, 10-plus years deep in the game, the former Roc-a-Fella soldier rounded up his longtime collaborators Bink!, Jake One, and Just Blaze. He growls over the production by Incredible Stro for Jungle, and documents his grind on the album intro, Right Back. As part of Jay-Z’s school of thought, he delivers an array of hustler’s anthems, each providing insight on his former lifestyle. He settles into the role of a narrator from the corner on tracks like Wonder Tape and Ghetto Streets, framing a painting of Philly's streets that's illustrated with his gritty lyricism. There are times where Free relies on repetitious hooks that fall flat.
