Freeway has been diagnosed with kidney failure and is currently undergoing dialysis treatment, according to a Revolt TV report.

Part of one of the most legendary groups in rap history, Freeway is one of the most known Philly rappers ever. He carried the torch for Philly after Will Smith, and open doors for rappers like Meek Mill to come out the City of Brotherly Love. He was a very important figure in the Roc-A-Fella movement, and best known for his hit record “What We Do” feat. Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel. Freeway was best known for his unique flow, and being a true lyricist. Countless unforgettable verses, like the sixteen he spit on Kanye’s classic album College Dropout will never be forgotten.

The Philly Freezer was scheduled to headline his Free Fest showcase in Philly this Saturday, September 19th. If you follow him on Instagram, then you would of seen him rehearsing with a live band. It was clear he was going to put on a fantastic show.

Prayers from everyone here at IFWT, and hopefully he can have a speedy recovery.
