Rockie Fresh is probably the last guy from the Maybach Music army to shamelessly promote their upcoming release (that title belongs proudly to Rick Ross), while Mos Def's 'Mathematics' is the furthest from the brand of rap you'd expect to hear on an MMG album, but that's exactly the type of weird and wonderful that's going on here.

To remind the world that the label's upcoming 'Self Made, Vol. 3' compilation hits stores on Sept. 17, the Chicago rookie hops on DJ Premier's classic 'Black on Both Sides' beat. No monolithic trap beat, no hyperbolic boasts and certainly no "haven't we heard this song like a thousand times already?" reaction; 'Self Made 3 Freestyle' is a very welcome surprise.

You know what, we might just pre-order this 'Self Made' thing after all.
