Earlier this month, it appeared that Freeway reunited with Jay Z and signed a deal with Roc Nation, although it wasn’t clear until now. In a recent interview with Billboard, the State Property rapper confirmed that a deal was signed, and he explained how everything happened.

“We’ve always maintained a good relationship with Jay and everybody over there,” said Free. “We did the B-Sides concert with him. I think that was probably like two years ago. When I was there with him, I gave him some music, just continuing the grind and everything. He was f—— with the music and everything was all good.”

“So then when I saw him again backstage at the Beyoncé concert in Philly, I was like ‘Man, listen, Jay, I need this,'” he continued. “I’m ready … He was like, ‘It’s nothing. Let’s get it done.'”

Afterwards, Freeway explained that he always wanted to work with Jay again but couldn’t, because he was locked in an independent deal. However, once the terms of that deal expired, it left the door wide open for them to do business.

“It was all perfect timing,” said Freeway. “By the grace of God, it happened one after the other. As soon as my thing was up, I ran into Jay, told him I was ready and he was like ‘Let’s get it done.'”
