You can't think of two styles more different than Freeway and Lil Uzi Vert's, yet they both hail from the same city. With "Swagger On Mayo," a track from Freeway's new Think Free project, the rappers bring two generations of Philadelphia rap together on track that attempts to play to both of their strengths. That happens to be a pretty standard trap beat, which is a good middle ground for the two drastically different vocalists. The instrumental challenges Freeway to deliver a braggy, stylish hook, but he sounds most at home on his verse, where he can experiment with different rhythms as high hats dash around him. When Uzi enters, he does so with a tasteful dose of auto-tune, and finds a comfortable but surprising flow that proves he's worthy of carrying the city's name forward.
Freeway's latest also features guest appearances from Lil Wayne, Jadakiss, and Faith Evans. Listen to the full project here.
Swagger on the mayo, and that miracle whip
It's gonna take a miracle if you get hit
What's on my hip, diamonds bigger than a tick
That's on my wrist
And speaking of that rollie, man
That bitch don't tick
