[artist id="1211439"]Freeway[/artist] is using [artist id="2698"]Pat Benatar[/artist] to give his point of view on the [artist id="1269"]Jay-Z[/artist]/ [artist id="509100"]Beanie Sigel[/artist] rift. The former Roc-A-Fella artist just put out a new record lightly touching on the public falling-out of his onetime team members. Wednesday morning (December 2) on her Shade 45 satellite radio show, host Angela Yee debuted Free's "Love Is a Battlefield."
"I ain't saying n---as left us in the 'hood, but we ate our little food, did the dishes cleaned the plates up," he raps over a sample of Benatar's classic '80s song. "You was eating steak while we was eating Steak-umm/ But I never complained/ Dapped you up and tipped the waiter. ...
"I can't get the president on the phone, I'm fine," Free continues. " 'Cause I got the evidence in my home/ The plaques/ Freezer body tracks."
Free ends the record telling everyone that they will get a more in-depth account of how he feels about the Jay/Beanie saga on his album The Stimulus Package, which is due early next year.
When he called in to Yee's morning radio show on Tuesday, however, Freeway didn't pick sides.
"I talked to him before all this stuff went on," Free said about Jay. "But he's cool. I ain't got nothing against him."
He also said he was unsure if or how Hov would address the conflict.
"I don't know, man. Knowing Jay, if it was anybody else, I'm sure he probably would have been responded," Freeway explained. "But it's a touchy situation, being as though everybody was so tight at one point. So I don't know what he's gonna say."
The bearded wonder also said Memphis Bleek was still cool with him and that Beanie is his "brother." They were just in the studio together. "That's my man for life," Free said. "We're good friends, plus we're Muslim."
