Freeway Free at Last (Roc-A-Fella) Rap

On Freeway's sophomore album, Free at Last, he laments a bad breakup. ''I'm back without a Just track/Tried to reach out and work/But he ain't chirp back.'' So who's been dodging his calls? Just Blaze, who produced more than half of the rapper's underrated '03 debut, Philadelphia Freeway. Without Blaze's meticulous mixes to rein him in, Freeway's raspy, erratic gun talk veers out of control. Behind-the-boards stalwarts like Bink and Dame Grease provide plenty of soulful hip-hop, but the chemistry isn't quite the same. That's often the way with rebound relationships.
