When the rapper born Leslie Pridgen named himself Freeway, he couldn’t have come up with a better moniker.

Every so often, Gucci Mane, from behind bars, reminds the rap game that he still owns the streets. He’s reportedly to be released on September 20, but before then he debuts a new project titled Meal Ticket.

Today’s edition of Wired Tracks is a Harlem thing, as Hip-Hop Wired highlights a pair of newly releases heaters from a few of Uptown Manhattan’s finest rappers.

Philly MC Freeway was diagnosed with kidney failure and rushed to the hospital for emergency dialysis treatment in September 2015, sending shockwaves though the Hip-Hop community. Now, he is sharing his experience in a new documentary.

With the new year underway, Mike WiLL Made-It releases Rae Sremmurd’s new track “By Chance,” the first single from his upcoming Ransom 2 mixtape.

YG has been mum in recent months, allowing only FADER access in a candid interview detailing him getting shot, how that’s affected his movement in LA, and what his new album, Still Krazy (due 2016), will sound like. Fans can gauge the latter by getting an earful of three new songs released by the Compton rapper.

As Kid Cudi cited, life can be rather unpredictable, which led him to postpone his “Especial” tour citing production issues and personal strife. Today, he counters the unfortunate news with the release of “Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven.”

Renowned rapper Freeway is undergoing treatment after being diagnosed with kidney failure.

State Property members have been key in the public receiving updates on Beanie Sigel’s health status. After Neef Buck posted a photo of his partner in rhyme leaving a New Jersey hospital a month after a near scrape with death, Freeway gives more info during a sit down with Revolt TV.

Home is where the heart is, and Freeway would rather be nowhere but his native Philadelphia in the official visual for he and producer Girl Talk’s “Lived It.”

Highway Robbery season is still underway. And please don’t take that literally, as it refers to Freeway and The Jacka’s collaborative recently released project. Here’s the video for track three “No Time,” featuring Joe Blow.
