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. Yasiin Bey (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.
Tied To The Whipping Post
King 810 Feat. Freddie Gibbs
Well this is definitely something new. Flint, Michigan metal band King 810 are releasing a mixtape with DJ Drama, titled Midwest Monsters 2, a sequel to their 2012 mixtape. Why would a signed band release a tape with a rap DJ? Features we're assuming, as "Tied To The Whipping Post" pairs the group with Gary Indiana's own, Freddie Gibbs.
Curren$y & Freddie Gibbs
Last month, Alchemist & Oh No (Madlib's bro) announced their joint partnership (as Gangrene), and an upcoming Grand Theft Auto-inspired album, Welcome to Los Santos. We already heard "Play It Cool", which featured Earl Sweatshirt and Samuel T. Herring (of Future Islands), and we should've foreseen more huge collabs, but this is almost too good to be true.
Let's Get Money
Bad Lucc Feat. Freddie Gibbs
Wednesday is probably the worst day of the week. The weekend is a distant memory, and Friday is still two days away (unless you think like me, which means: today's almost over, and tomorrow is Thursday, and the next day is Friday, so really, it's already Friday! Pure math). If you don't think in futuristic terms, and you're in need of some mid-week motivation, look no further.
The Purist Feat. Freddie Gibbs
The Purist, hailing from across the pond, has stormed onto our radars this year as one of the hottest producers to watch. Last month, he hooked up with Chicago's Mick Jenkins, and already in his young career, he's worked with Danny Brown, Action Bronson, and Roc Marciano. As you can see, he chooses his rappers very carefully--and, this time, it's more quality with Freddie Gibbs.
We haven't heard anything from Freddie Gibbs in 2015, though last year's Piñata still sounds fresh as ever. Tonight, though, he quietly dropped a three-track EP called Pronto. Upon first listen, it's the same hard-earned quality that we've come to expect from Gangsta Gibbs.
