Freddie Tipton (born January 28, 1982), better known by his stage name Freddie Gibbs, is a rapper from Gary, Indiana, now based in Southern California. He was signed by Interscope Records before being let go from his deal without a record being released. Subsequent to this, in 2009, he brought out The Miseducation of Freddie Gibbs—a compilation of his work to that date, mixing mixtape tracks with unreleased studio material—and midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik—a collection of new music. Both were released for free to the internet. He has just recently teamed up with Bun B and Chuck Inglish to form the "super group" P.O.C. (Pulled Over by the Cops).
