New studio album from Freeway is available now

Arguably the most revered lyricist to ever come out of Philadelphia, Freeway, returns to his roots, once again using his powerful voice to drop gems on listeners with his highly-anticipated solo album, Diamond In The Ruff. Serving as his first official full-length album since teaming up with Jake One for the critically acclaimed 2010 project, The Stimulus Package, Diamond In The Ruff has been years in the making and is truly Freeway's most illustrious album yet. During a visit to Shade 45's "Sway in the Morning," the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania rapper premiered his new collaboration with Just Blaze, "Early," marking the first time the two have worked together since Just helmed the bulk of Free's 2003 debut Philadelphia Freeway. During the visit Freeway also performed a verse from

R-Mean debuts new video featuring The Game

Armenia is a small country of fewer than four million people sitting in the south caucus region of Asia and landlocked between Turkey, Azerbadjian, Georgia, and Iran. You should know this because Los Angeles is in fact home to one of the largest Armenian immigrant enclaves in the world. Celebrities Serj Tankian and Kim Kardashian (who both grew up in Los Angeles) have each made a powerful impact on their respective fields of alternative music and reality television, introducing disparate and unique takes on Armenian identity into American pop culture. And now, with lyrical prowess and melodious flow, Los Angeles-born, overtly-Armenian rapper R-Mean is bringing word of his mountainous ancestral republic to one of our biggest cultural expressions of all: hip-hop. In Early 2013, R-
