Last month, Freeway spoke on the conflict between Sigel and Jay-Z on his song, "Love is a Battlefield."
"I learned when you in t, you should try to get your cake up," Freeway raps. "Half these rap n*ggas girls, without the dresses and the make-up/I was in the hood stressin' with the woes/While my n*gga Beans was doing a year in the wake-up/Everyday I wake up, shootin', robbin'...And I ain't sayin' n*ggas left us in the hood, but we ate our little food, did the dishes, cleaned the plates up/You was eating steak while we was eating Steak Ums/But I never complained, dapped you up and tipped the waiter/Then I, took the Roc, posted up, made a shot/If things ever got hot, worry not, he had the banger on him/Yup, Philly n*ggas live the code...If I can't get the president on the phone, I'm fine, 'cause I got the evidence, the plaques at my home..." ("Love Is a Battlefield")
According to an interview with Free in early December, the record would explain where he stands in the conflict.
"Yeah, I just recorded this record from my point of view of the situation," Freeway told radio personality Angela Yee. "It's called 'Love is a Battlefield. We gonna debut that joint probably Wednesday, I'ma send that joint to you so you can blast that joint out. Well, you gonna see when I give you the record. Then you gonna play that joint and everybody is gonna see where I stand on it on that joint. The record is gonna let you know everything. I'm just basically telling y'all where I stand at, I've been around through the majority of the situation. [Beans] is my brother, that's my man for life, we good friends plus we Muslim."
