Freeway & Jake One Biography

Freeway: Leslie Edward Pridgen (born on July 8, 1979), better known by his stage name Freeway, is an American rapper. Best known for his tenure on Roc-a-Fella Records and his affiliation with Jay-Z and Beanie Sigel, he is recognized by his high-pitched delivery (akin to that of Ghostface Killah) and for the long beard he keeps due to his Muslim faith. His moniker is not derived from the name of the infamous drug trafficker "Freeway" Ricky Ross. He was a member of the rap group Ice City, is a member of the rap group State Property and recently signed to Cash Money Records, and Rhymesayers Entertainment

One of the store's other employees, the DJ Mr. Supreme heard the tape, and when he set up his Conception Records label, he used Dutton to create backing tracks.  The first record he produced was Eclipse's "World Premier". His early influences included Pete Rock, DJ Premier, and Marley Marl.

He was a part of the G-Unit production team, The Money Management Group. He is now under Dr. Dre's production team as of late 2008.

His first album credited to Jake One, White Van Music, was release on October 7, 2008 on Rhymesayers Entertainment, which features contributions from Brother Ali, Young Buck, De La Soul, M.O.P., Freeway, MF DOOM, Slug, and Keak Da Sneak.
