In a recent interview, Philly rapper Freeway spoke on his respect for Jay-Z, artists that he wants to work with that include Dre, Eminem, Nas and Kendrick Lamar, working on his new, Freedom Of Speech, album, collaborating with Nate Dogg and more.

Freeway chopped it up with Montreality and spoke on the respect he has for his former boss, Jay-Z:

“That’s the big homie. Supports me 100 percent. Jay was one of my favorite artists anyway, even before I signed. If you look at what he’s doing and the level he’s at in his career and his age and everything, he’s still able to be so good and be one of the top emcees. I listen to some of Jay’s music today from 2001, 2002, and I’m still catching lines like, oh wow, that’s what he said? That’s how you know he’s a good artist. His verse on ‘What We Do,’ that was my first big record with Jay, so of course it’s my favorite.”

As the interview continues, Free talks artists that he wants to work with:

“I want to work with Dre. I’ve been in the game for a minute, I haven’t gotten a chance to work with Dre. Definitely want to do with Dre and Em. Up-and-coming people, I want to do something with Kendrick Lamar. He’s an artist who challenged the game and came with something different. I want to work with Nas, before it’s all said and done. Nas was one of my favorite artists growing up.”
