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.
The cover art for "Cocaine Parties in L.A." features an old photo of a dapper man in a cocaine-white suit and hat. This would have been Gibbs, had he grew up in father's generation. Gibbs brings the heat here, a different sort of heat than the one Kanye brought on the original. How do they compare?
Hey killa, you forgot your soda dawg,
My mama kitchen stanking from the last order dawg,
So many cocaine transactions I don't recall
Was lit, tell the judge and the preacher presiding over y'all
