Hip hop fans breathed a massive sigh of relief after Freddie Gibbs was exonerated of sexual assault charges at the end of September. Now, we can get back to our regularly scheduled programming of Gibbs' ultra-consistent dispatches from the streets of Gary. This afternoon, he liberated "All Day," a collaboration with Harry Fraud and his first proper song release since January.
Trap House Jumpin
Country Cousins Feat. Freddie Gibbs
Freddie Gibbs fans breathed a huge sigh of relief after the rapper was acquitted of sexual assault in Austria last week. Now they can look forward to his Bandana album with Madlib and anything else he puts out, which is virtually guaranteed to be flames.
Body For My Zipcode
DJ Drama Feat. Young Life, Freddie Gibbs & Dave East
DJ Drama brings together a few hardened rappers from across the country for his threatening collaboration "Body For My Zipcode"-- each rapper repping a different zip code, ostensibly. Young Life is perhaps the least familiar name of the bunch, as a Compton up and comer, although he makes up the majority of the song. Meanwhile Gangsta Gibbs holds it down for Indiana, and Dave East is Harlem's own.
AD & Sorry Jaynari Feat. Freddie Gibbs & Mozzy
At Midnight, we premiered AD and Sorry Jaynari's joint project, By The Way, which is actually an iTunes release that we're offering exclusively for download. But you should still go buy it on iTunes. The project was led by two banging singles, "Thug" featuring YG and "Tap In" featuring E-40 and Nef The Pharaoh.
Zeds Dead Feat. Freddie Gibbs
Freddie Gibbs' Shadow Of A Doubt was the rapper's most varied effort yet, both vocally and production-wise. The rapper has followed that tangent on to "Back Home," his new collaborative single with Toronto electronic duo Zeds Dead. Of course, the instrumental is the most dance music-informed palette we've heard him on, and he's also decided to sing the majority of the record, taking him a little further out of his comfort zone.
Money, Cash, Hoes
Although he just released a new album, Shadow of a Doubt, in November, Gibbs hasn't slowed down a bit. Since the album he's dropped off a mix of freestyles and original records, including his take on Kanye West's "No More Parties In L.A.," appropriately gangsta-fied as "Cocaine Parties In L.A."
Killa Kyleon Feat. Styles P, Freddie Gibbs & Raheem DeVaughn
Veteran Houston rapper Killa Kyleon is currently prepping an album called Blessed To Raise Hell (not to be confused with Boosie's Touchdown 2 Cause Hell). It is true, he's never gotten the mainstream success he deserves, but at least the real Gs no what's up.
Cocaine Parties In L.A.
Freddie Gibbs' recent track "Dead Presidents" featured an inventive flip of the beat from the classic Jay Z record, which originally dropped in 1996. Today, Gibbs flips another beat, one that's a bit more modern: Kanye West's "No More Parties in L.A." But for Freddie Kane, partying isn't an option. It's a way of life.
Fresh off of stirring up debate in the HNHH comment section for a statement he made about being on the same level as Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole, Freddie Gibbs has come to prove his point. This is one of two songs he let loose today for public consumption.
Dead Presidents (Freestyle)
Whether or not you believe Freddie Gibbs is on Kendrick Lamar & J Cole's level, as he recently argued, his music speaks for itself. After dropping one of the hottest rap albums of 2015 in Shadow of a Doubt, Freddie Kane kicks off his 2016 with a pair of new tracks -- "Hot Boys" and a "Dead Presidents" freestyle.
Freddie Gibbs Feat. Gucci Mane & E-40
Tomorrow, November 20th, is the day that Freddie Gibbs drops Shadow of a Doubt. Having already shared “Fuckin’ Up the Count,” Packages feat.
Rich The Kid Feat. Freddie Gibbs
Rich the Kid dropped his Flexin on Purpose mixtape at the end of August and he's already announced a joint project with iLoveMakonnen called Whip It. It appears that he's got even more planned.
Freddie Gibbs Feat. Black Thought
Freddie Gibbs' new project Shadow Of A Doubt should be a varied one. After hitting us with the Atlanta-influenced "Packages" earlier today, Gibbs has now shared a collaboration with Black Thought from the Roots. This one has a much more soulful feel, as Gibbs matches the shuffling production with some technical bars.
Freddie Gibbs Feat. ManMan Savage
Freddie Gibbs will be dropping his Shadow Of A Doubt project later this month, and today he's shared a new Atlanta-informed record called "Packages". Post-56 Nights, the Kill Bill-siren wielding darkness of 808 Mafia has been the biggest export from ATL, and the collective's Tarentino has brought that sound to Gibbs.
Midwest Malcolm (Inhale)
Freddie Gibbs just surprised fans by announcing the imminent release of his third album, Shadow of a Doubt, the follow-up to Piñata, his collaborative masterpiece with Madlib. He's come a long way since midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik, but all the potential is right there on the mixtape's opening track, "Midwest Malcolm."
Fuckin' Up The Count
Though he dropped off a rock-solid EP, Pronto, in March, we felt that we hadn't gotten quite enough Freddie Gibbs this year, especially as he and Madlib gave us one of 2014's best releases with Piñata. Well, today Gibbs proved to fans that he's been cooking up some serious dope, announcing that his next full-length, Shadow of a Doubt, is right around the corner.
The World Is My Ashtray
Freddie Gibbs could rap over an infant crying on an airplane and it would be fire. A soulful Ski Beatz instrumental, of course, is preferable, and that's what we get with their latest collaboration “The World Is My Ashtray."
Never Die (Paul White Remix)
Golden Rules Feat. Mos Def & Freddie Gibbs
Golden Rules is a duo made up of producer Paul White and rapper Eric Biddines, and earlier this summer they got the increasingly rare honor of hosting a new verse form Yasiin Bey (formerly Mos Def) on "Never Die". Now the track has been re-released as a remix (done by the group's own White), now featuring the always on-point Freddie Gibbs.
Apollo Brown Feat. Freddie Gibbs & Maffew Ragazino
Out of the many excellent rap albums dropping today, Apollo Brown's Grandeur might be the one most worth checking out.
Verbal Kent Feat. Freddie Gibbs
An upcoming rapper out of Chicago, Verbal Kent makes his HNHH debut with "Suitcase Switch," the first single from his upcoming project Anesthesia. He brings on Freddie Gibbs to give the Apollo Brown-produced track some shine, and Gibbs, not one to mail in a feature verse, spits a rock solid 16 but doesn't outperform Kent, who possesses a mean and dextrous flow. Gangsta Gibbs' hometown of Gary, IN sits right across the state line from Chicago, thus making "Suitcase Switch" a local collaboration.
