The best years of Freeway’s career came when he was on Roc-A-Fella Records. At one time, all a rapper had to do was be with the Roc to have hits. But, everything comes to an end and the Roc had its time like every other dynasty. Every rap empire has crumbled, but aside from the demise of Death Row Records, there was never a split as nasty as Roc-A-Fella’s.
Each year, another piece of the dynasty falls apart. The most notable piece to fall has been that of Beanie Sigel. He had been Jay-Z’s biggest advocate for years. There had been times when he wanted to leave the Roc, but never on bad terms. However, at the end of October 2009, he revealed that he may have just been holding his tongue. Beanie Sigel unleashed diss after diss on his former boss and he even brought 50 Cent into the feud.
While Beanie Sigel may hold hatred towards Jay-Z, Freeway does not. He said that he would not go against Jay because he gave him his first deal. However, Free refused to speak for Beanie. Given the fact that Beans had been with the Roc longer and had a deeper relationship with the executives, mainly Jay-Z, he feels that this is nothing more than built-up anger. Freeway made it clear that he holds no ill will towards Jay-Z, though.
Freeway also explained how Beanie Sigel began to not trust Jay-Z when he took over the front office of Def Jam. He said that his time with Jay-Z on Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam was the best time in his career, but he appreciates the freedom that he now has with Cash Money. When he signed with the label, they gave him his own label, Free Money, which goes along with the other sub-labels that work with Cash Money.
