FREEWAY AND JAKE ONE’S “THROW UP YOUR HANDS” IS NPR’S SONG OF THE DAY

Freeway and Jake One’s song “Throw Up Your Hands” is NPR’s Song of the Day. NPR praises the new album, saying, “The imprint [Rhymesayer] has proven a great home for him [Freeway], as evidenced by his excellent recent CD, The Stimulus Package. It doesn’t hurt that the disc was produced by Seattle DJ Jake One, perhaps the best boom-bap-style beat maker in the business.” NPR calls “Throw Your Hands Up”, “a rousing jock-jam designed to get the blood pumping. Over a dramatic bass line, high-register synths and a blitzkrieg of record-scratching, Freeway announces that he and Jake One are here to rock listeners in an old-school way… Nostalgic and relevant, smart and fun, “Throw Your Hands Up” finds two compelling artists in top form.”
