On their Loosies contribution, “Dedicated,” Freeway and producer Chad “Wes” Hamilton harken back to the golden era of the early Aughts when Roc-A-Fella reigned supreme, thanks to gritty yet soulful hip-hop like their State Property collabs (there’s a reason Peedi shouts out “Chad…Chad Wes on track!”)
In this exclusive FG interview with writer Matthew Trammell, the duo reveal how “Dedicated” came together, reminisce on the early days (and current state) of the Roc, and discuss how they’ve reconciled their own legacies. Get Loosies now on iTunes and all digital services, as well as a limited-edition USB box set.

Western Tink and Beautiful Lou combined forces for the woozy, lo-fi “Trill Hoe” on our Loosies compilation, and now Tink (who lets be honest, has one of the best names in the entire rap game) drops this appropriately tweaked video for the cut, where he marauds through San Antonio with a Toys R Us ratchet on a robbing spree for Valentines. Hear more on his Bandcamp.
