    Hip-Hop Artist 03 Greedo Drops Mixtape Ft. Drakeo, OhGeesy & More: Free 03

    Hip-Hop Artist 03 Greedo Drops Mixtape Ft. Drakeo, OhGeesy & More: Free 03

    The 14-track collaboration with a fellow architect of L.A. street rap contains 03 Greedo’s first new material recorded from prison alongside music made before his sentence.

    03 Greedo left the rap game in a creative frenzy, recording thousands of songs to feed the streets as he does his time. Releasing the latest batch from his vault of inventive bangers, Greedo shares Free 03, a brand new mixtape. Created in collaboration with renowned L.A. producer Mike Free, the new mixtape proves that the legendary L.A. rapper remains ahead of his time. The 14-track effort contains Greedo’s first-ever music recorded from jail (including tape highlight “If I Die” and the spoken word “Intro”), along with music made before he began his prison sentence. His first new full-length since 2020’s Load It Up Vol. 01Free 03 is available everywhere via Alamo Records.

    Home to 2022 singles Drop Down” ft. KenTheMan and Pourin” ft. BlueBucksClan, recently named one of the Best Rap Songs of 2022 by Passion of the Weiss, Free 03 is a potent refinement of Greedo’s inimitable sound. Songs like “Today” and “I Can’t Control Myself” showcase his talent for spinning taffy-like melodies, while missives like “Took A Lil Minute” and “Breakfast” benefit from his supernatural spitting. The tape boasts standout guest appearances from Greedo’s close friend OhGeesy and the late great Drakeo The Ruler, whose verse on mixtape highlight “No Free Features” rekindles the chemistry from legendary L.A. street hits like “Ion Rap Beef,” “Out The Slums,” and “Let’s Go.”

    Free 03 continues the momentum that Greedo has continued to build, even as he serves a prison sentence in Texas. Greedo released two buzzing singles in 2022, as his 2016 classic “Sweet Lady” picked up steam on TikTok. 2021 brought the 03 Inna Key EP, home to standout singles “Calendar” and “AirBnb,” and saw the resurgence of Greedo’s 2018 song “Substance,” which went viral on TikTok (over 500k video creations), prompting Wiz Khalifa to hop on the remix and launching the single to RIAA-certified GOLD status. Free 03 also continues Greedo’s line of collaborations with high-profile producers, including 2020’s Load It Up Vol. 01, a collaboration with RonRonTheProducer, 2019’s Netflix & Deal, produced by Kenny Beats, and 2018’s Still Summer In The Projects, produced by Mustard.

    Ready to flood the market with even more music in 2023, it’s gonna be a big year for 03 Greedo. Keep an eye on the Watts native as he continues to cement his legendary status.

    L.A. rapper 03 Greedo came into his own on a series of mixtapes that began with 2016’s Purple Summer. His multi-faceted rhymes were heavy on references to drugs, struggle, and fame, and he churned out quality material at a prolific rate. He broke through to an even larger audience after signing a record deal, but not even a month after the release of his 2018 debut studio album God Level, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison for drug trafficking. He began serving his time in the summer of that year but issued a statement saying he intended to keep making and releasing new music while incarcerated. In 2019, Greedo released “Still Summer in the Projects”, the Kenny Beats produced project Netflix & Deal, with features from Freddie Gibbs, Vince Staples, Buddy and more, and in 2020, he dropped Load It Up, Vol. 01, produced by RonRonThe Producer. Greedo released his latest mixtape, Free 03 in January.
