Multi-faceted entrepreneur and entertainment industry executive Freeway Rick Ross has joined forces with emerging artists Sirr Jones and Maserati JT to create a new record label, “Freeway Ties.”
In May, Shorty T, Marc “Mayjah” Payne & Sirr Jones dropped their new EP entitled “Sheesh,” and in only 2 days of its release, the EP charted at #2 on the UK iTunes Charts right under Kendrick Lamar’s new album “Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers.” If you do not already know about this insanely awesome rap trio, then you really need to do your research. Combined, these artists have dominated the rap charts for the past 5 months straight. I suggest adding their music to your playlists. You won’t be disappointed.
With so many new artists in the game nowadays, it’s somewhat hard to find good quality music when shopping around. That is not the case here. High-quality sound and impressive lyrical ability are what you can expect from this project. You can hear the cohesiveness within the songs between the artists. Although each of these artists is solo and can demolish tracks individually, it’s always worth listening to for audiences when they come together. New sound, new adventures, and a new way of how record labels work built Freeway Ties which is here to help the artist become the best business-minded and best entrepreneur that the world has seen and spread positivity to the world by planting a good seed and watching it grow.
