There’s no place like home. From copping jewelry to shoes, Freeway makes his rounds around the City of Brotherly Love in his new video directed by Jimmy Giambrone and produced by Girl Talk. Says Free:“I wanted to really capture the essence of Philadelphia by getting footage of all the spots that symbolize the city to me.”
There are few things in this world more life-affirming than watching local rap stars moving through their hometowns, shaking hands and kissing babies. Philly veteran Freeway teamed up with mash-up monster Girl Talk for the Broken Ankles EP earlier this year, and their new video for the seen-it-all song “Lived It” ends with the two of them triumphantly rocking the Made In America festival. Most if it, though, is just Freeway walking through Philadelphia: Eating cheesesteaks, posing for photos, doing the inevitable Rocky-steps shot. And while it’s not the joyous anarchy of the “Tolerated” video, it’s still a whole lot of fun to watch. Jimmy Giambrone directs. -- Stereogum
