Check out the fresh slideshow above illustrating the fusion of artist, brand, and media as we have opened our office doors for a variety of national and local Chicago artists, and gifted them free hats and gear from one of our sponsors — New Era!
Plus! I'm also bringing back a hilarious video we did with GLC when we gifted him some Chicago New Era lids and a Dallas Mavericks one that he rocked in the "Mack On, Mack Strong" video, directed by our own Terrence Jones. Ism!
Freeway announced today that not only will he be releasing a follow up to his 2010 album "The Stimulus Package", but he also signed a new deal with Babygrande to release the new project. The new album titled "Diamond in the Ruff" will be released November 13th and will be feature Wale, Styles P, Musiq Soulchild, Marsha Ambrosius, and more. The will also be production from Jake One and Needlez. But for the fans that can't wait until then he will be releasing a mixtape "Freedom of Speech" before the album drops.
