The record is due April 29 through Babygrande Records, and it features a new joint track between Freeway and Girl Talk called "First Things First," which you can stream below.

You'll find all of the album details below.
In a press statement, Freeway explains that the record takes a look at, well, Free Will, and how our many choices dictate our paths in life.
"As human beings we're God's only creation and we have a choice to do right or wrong, with those choices, they affect your life and your afterlife," he said, adding, "I touch base on many of the choices I made in my life and reveal how those choices affected me."
The record comes following Freeway being diagnosed with kidney disease in 2015. He's currently on a waiting list to get a new kidney,and has been working to raise awareness of the disease in inner city neighbourhoods, in partnership with the National Kidney Foundation, World Kidney Day and the American Kidney Fund.
