Beanie Sigel and Freeway Team Up for ‘Roc Boys’ Album
Former Roc-a-Fella recording artists Beanie Sigel and Freeway are coming together to release a full-length collaborative album. Both rappers are Philly natives and existing members of the group State Property along with fellow Philadelphia emcees Peedi Crakk, Oschino, Omillio Sparks, Young Chris, and Neef. In the early 2000's the whole squad was signed to Roc-a-Fella Records and on the path to hip-hop superstardom with Jay-Z and Damon Dash cosigns.
Fast forward to 2010, and more than half of the Roc-a-Fella family have claimed wrong doing by both Jay and Dame. Subsequently none of the pre-existing relationships or contracts survived the internal conflict. Beanie Sigel was the latest former Roc artist to verbally attack Jay-Z on wax.
Regardless of any merit or validation from their former bosses, Sigel and Freeway are preparing to release an album titled Roc Boys on the indie label Siccness Records that also released Sigel's last street album 'Broadstreet Bully.' The name is an obvious play on their previous label and reputation, but neither emcee has stated whether or not there will be any diss tracks geared toward Jay or Dame. It looks like only time will tell. The album has no official release date but is scheduled to be released sometime next month and features guest appearances from Wale, Young Chris and DMX.
