Revealing his reasons for leaving Young Jeezy's CTE, Freddie Gibbs says it was not on good terms, and then talks about people not being true to their word in the rap game.
In December, after a short time with the label, Freddie Gibbs announced that he had parted ways with Young Jeezy’s CTE, and was diplomatic about the split. Now in a recent interview, Gangsta Gibbs reveals that the split with Snowman was not amicable. He also mentions how he was not satisfied with just being on a well-known rapper’s label, and mentions how frustrated he is with people in the rap game not keeping their word.
Talking to Chicago’s The Morning Riot about leaving CTE, the Indiana native says it was not on friendly terms, and says he was not happy pushing someone else’s brand, “I can't really say it was amicable. I could just say that we agreed to disagree. We definitely disagreed.” The rapper goes onto add, “I felt like I was wasting time pushing someone else's brand when I could push my own and do my own thing. Because that's was what he was concerned with, pushing Jeezy. So I gotta be concerned with pushing Gibbs."
Continuing on, Gibbs explains that being associated with a big name was not enough for him, "I think a lot of guys just do be happy being down with these Rap guys, but that just isn't me. Like I said, I earned my stripes in this game. I don't think that he knew what he was getting into and things of that nature.”
Freddie then talks about how frustrated he was with people, assumingly referencing Jeezy, not sticking to their word, “I just wish that guys would be true to their word in this game. If I tell you I'ma do something, then I'ma do it. You got a lot of these guys in this game proclaiming to be the realest, this and that. But when it all comes down to it, they not handling they business correctly. Because it's like this, man. If we doing things in the street and you do me bogus, it might end up with you getting handled. So since we not in the street, you feel like you can play with my money on this Rap side and there ain't gon' be no repercussions? Nah man. You not gon' play with me like that. So to nip all of that in the bud, I just stepped off and did my thing."
