Editorial Reviews

Freeway sets out to stimulate the Hip Hop industry by signing into law the Hip Hop Recovery and Reinvestment Act with the release of The Stimulus Package. Produced entirely by veteran G-Unit producer Jake One, The Stimulus Package showcases some of Freeway's most dynamic and engaging work to date. Since his breakout Roc-A-Fella debut Philadelphia Freeway in 2003, which achieved gold status, Freeway has been regarded as "your favorite rapper's favorite rapper". The collaboration of heavyweights Freeway & Jake One makes The Stimulus Package already one of the year's most anticipated releases.

4.0 out of 5 stars HOT ALBUM AND CD PACKAGING IS ILL!! March 6, 2010
By G-MAN
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.....first off let me decribe the cd package this is some clever stuff for real it looks like wallet when you open it up and the cd booklet looks like money to fit into the cd it has like a credit card too that you can go to the website to download free stuff this so innovative i love it nobody does stuff like this no more no one puts the time into cd packaging no more...the album is hot if you like freeway and you know what he's about this will not dissappoint Jake One production fits freeway style of flow and it just knocks!!! Freeway is at home on these beats plus he broadenes subject matter (never gonna change,free people,outro)but the intro has the hottest beat and features Beanie Sigel (crazy!!) cop this CD freeway fans will love it new fans will dig the cd packaging for me the music comes first the cd packaging is just a added bonus

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Epic February 16, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is simply what Hip-Hop needs right now, epic beats & amazing rhymes..Freeway does his thing on this, as usual. Jake One comes correct on the beats, as usual. What more can I say?..truly classic material. 5 stars!

Before I delve in to the music on Freeway and Jake One's The Stimulus Package, a word has to be said on the inventive packaging. The album is shaped like a wallet, with dollar bills serving as liner notes that you put inside the wallet. For a lover of the endangered species known as the compact disc, it's nice to see a label can still pull out all of the stops and put out a nice physical product to buy.

Now on to the music. The Stimulus Package seems to be aimed at a mainstream audience, yet it have several characteristics that fit much better with the underground. Freeway is a Roc-A-Fella alum, and his rhymes and flow on the Stimulus Package fit inside of the Roc's tradition. The beats also follow Jay-Z's template of using soul sampled and smooth beats that he used on his Blueprint album.

Besides being on perhaps the best known indie rap label Rhymesayers, the Stimulus Package features one MC (mostly) and one producer, lending it a consistency that is rarely seen in big budget mainstream releases. The beats are also a lot more nuanced than they would appear, and several listens reveal a lot of detail.

Jake One is the star here. Considering he's made beats for artists as divergent as Young Buck and Slug, Jake One seems perfectly suited to making glossy and soulful beats that appeal to both sides of the hip hip aisle. Though the beats are slightly one note, they're smooth, go down easy, and keep your head nodding throughout it's 15 tracks. Luckily, the CD comes with a card for downloading an instrumental version of the album.

Freeway is the weaker of the partnership here. He's a perfectly capable MC who can flow well and tell a good story, but he doesn't do anything to blow me out of the water.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds Like Roc-A-Fella Via 2002 September 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I have always loved freeway, one of the few rappers that could kill a great beat 99% of the time even though he doesn't have a typical flow. He kinda sound like a Philadelphia version of Ghostface. So with all this being sd I'm not suprised by anything Freeway spits on this album, the real star is Jake one, on this cd he does his best Just Blaze/Bink/Kanye impersonation. The samples and drum here are steller and if the point of this album was to capture that old Roc-A- Fella Sound mission accomplished. From the energertic "Throw Your Hands Up" to the brilliant "Never Gonna Change" everything one this album sound sincere. BTW the drums on nvr "Never Gonna Change" are ridiculously Bananna"s son. Even the single "Makes Me feel Alright" sound single worthy but not forced, love the video for it as well. This is a great comeback album from an artist who was on the verge of fading away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice musical chemistry... December 5, 2010
By Real217
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Freeway does not disappoint on this LP, Jake One brings hard hitting kicks and whistles, this just seems to bang out to the surface, even if you turn some of the tracks down, they still demand attention. Free's in your face lyrics definitley impress. The second track sets the tone for what is about to be a refreshing experience, Free goes in hard right from the first bars and it just gets your spirits riled up "Everybody throw your hands up!!". The beats are brisk, well constructed. I must say even i didnt expect this album to be this good. Free brings serious, personal lyrics, nothing about chains or senseless bragadoccio, its a tale of violence, a hard life, and a few survival cues he had learned growing up. But make no mistake, its not all about hardcore, there are also slow melodic songs. He's rhyme scheme is the same only a little improved, i like imagery and metaphors, though he doesnt employ those extensively, he still gets his point accross successfully. Even if you dont like Freeway, give this a chance, i promise you even the guest appearances will keep you listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5th solo is another classic from Freeway March 5, 2010
By G$
Format:Audio CD
Just 3 months since his last album and this being his 3rd in a 9 month span, Freeway returns; with Jake One on the production boards, to bring you another classic to add to his impressive catalog. This being his 2nd classic (with 2009's "Philadelphia Freeway 2"), he also has two 4.5 star albums ( his 2003 debut, "Philadelphia Freeway" and 2009's "Streetz Iz Mine") as well as a solid 4 star 2007 effort "Free at Last". I also have 4 State Property albums he was a part of (two are 4.5 stars the other 2 are border 3.5/4 stars and he has his 4 star Ice City group album from 2004. The man has been real busy lately, and on point as well, possibly the strongest he's been in the 10 years he's been in the rap game. This one has 15 songs and is a great album. 3 are almost classics, 2 are ok, the other 10 are good, mostly great songs. Guests are on 7 songs, rapping on 6 and doing the hook on 1. As always he has his odd, but effective, delivery and some street/hustling oriented lyrics, with a few dirtier or deeper ones thrown in, as always. Production is brilliant as well and very versatlie in its sound, and as I said, Jake one does every song. The only thing I don't like is the ridiculous packaging it comes in, though all the songs lyrics are in the 2 booklets that come along witht he album. A must have album and probbly going to be one of the best of 2010!!

#1 - 8 (f/ Beanie Sigel -- short 30 sec. raps from the 2)
#2 - 9.5 (tight beat)
#3 - 8.5 (nice beat)
#4 - 9.5 (relaxing beat -- dirtier song)
#5 - 7.5 (beat isn't that good)
#6 - 7.5 (f/ Raekwon -- another average beat)
#7 - 8.5
#8 - 9.
