We're proud to present part 1 of a our 2-part sit-down with the Philly Freezer himself: Freeway! A little over a week ago, Freeway stopped into the Gowhere offices for a GWHH-hosted media junket where he talked with not only us but a variety of local media outlets as well.
Representing us above is a new add to the team: J Niice, co-host of B96 FM's morning show! In this deep and refreshing interview, J Niice focuses solely on Isalm with Freeway, who practices the religion. They discuss how Islam is a way of life, making your Hajj, the acceptance of Christianity and other religions in Islam, and even how his beard ties in with the religion. Also included in the video are snippets of Freeway sharing some of this knowledge during his set later that night at Reggie's (the energy was crazy!) and some clips of him mingling with #TeamGowhere around the office. Be sure to keep a close eye and ear to this engaging and enlightening new interview above and stay tuned soon for part 2. Shouts to Terrence Jones with the masterful job filming and editing and for more pictures of Freeway @ GWHQ, head on over to our Facebook page: facebook.com/gowherehiphop.
