The video for Philly flamethrower Freeway and Seattle super-producer Jake One's Rick James-sampled "She Makes Me Feel Alright," off their debut collaboration The Stimulus Package, will premiere May 2 during a special edition of MTV Jams dedicated to the ironically titled City of Brotherly Love. (Sorry, Philly: I got jacked there in 2002, and though I left with all my teeth, I had to make an unscheduled stop at the ATM. For a less violent view of the city, check out XL8R's latest City Guide episode.)
The first video off Free and Jake's disc was for "Know What I Mean," which is conveniently available for your viewing pleasure below. For the official propaganda on the new vid, hop the jump. Between this news and word this morning from Matson on Music that Shabazz Palaces is getting some national attention, all in all, it's been a pretty good week for Seattle hip-hop.
