(Jay-Z, Freeway, Young Gunz onstage for “What We Do”)
This was such a big moment for Philly hip-hop. When Jay came and signed up the State Property gang in the early 2000s, Illadeph was on a hip-hop high. Lead by Beanie Sigel, guys like Freeway, Young Chris, Neef, Oschino, Omillio, Peedi Crakk and others got their chance to shine on the Roc. As we all know the almighty Roc-A-Fella Records eventually crumbled, but as grown men, Hov and his lil Philly brothers are able to shake hands and restore the magic that once was Roc and State P. Relive it all with a special performance of “What We Do” with Jay, Free, and the Young Gunz.
