    jayz is a sell out corporate as greedy dude look at him seriously without beanie and freeway he would never got this far.

  • http://recordstopplay.com juice

    Freeway knew what he was doing. he aint tripping he graced the stage with politicians and shit. im pretty sure if it was as bad as yall make it seem, he wouldnt have been on stage to begin with. plus you probably wasnt there that couldve been shot within a 30 second period where some nut ass snapped that pic.

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/staticspot static

    stop standing up for jayz we all know he a bully and corporate thuggn. he dont pay workers and that was proven. he a arrogant asshole

  • FuckDAT.

    Might as well just call it The Masonic Music festival.

  • TRUTH

    Lmao This pictue explains EVERYTHING you need to know about Jay-Z

  • hxxvaz

    By the look on freeways face, Jay probably told him “nigga you can’t take pictures with the bosses til you get a platinum album. go stand on the side of us real quick so we can take this flick”

  • King Chandler

    @hxxvaz…….Visualizing that comment had me rollin….lol……real shit

    ignorance….

    You’re mad that Nutter actually has the balls to tell his own race when they’re out of line.

  • CP

    @ everyone dissin Freeway

    First off he was invited there by Jay-Z and was supposed to come on stage…Listen to Hov and watch it unfold…The white dude to the right pulled Free into the pic to begin with…People talking about lil mama, etc need to shut up.

    why freeway not in the pic his he on punishment or something

  • CP

    It makes sense that he was not in the pic, this was a “business” picture that featured the people responsible for bringing the concert to PHILLY.

  • ColoradoKnight

    Jay is in a league of his own. Say what you will, but he’s taken Hip Hop far beyond it’s boundaries. In fact, what boundaries at this point? Clap for’m.

  • Foekist

    Honestly, I have to come back on this… I would have been plenty pissed if I were Jay-Z. I can’t believe how Free presented himself. I am so disappointed.

    -Knew Beans and Jay weren’t gonna bury the hatchet. Ain’t no money in that for Shawny.
