The last time Gary, Indiana's Freddie Gibbs linked up with BJ The Chicago Kid, who grew up a few miles West of Gibbs' hometown, the result was the amazing jam "Shame" from Gibbs and Madlib's Piñata, and now they've done it again.
After being shot at after his show in Brooklyn last night, Freddie Gibbs is very lucky to have not met his demise last night. He did, however, show up on a Ransom track called "Demise" shortly after, taken from the rapper's Pain & Glory: The Album.
We've received quite a few leaks from The Game's massive compilation album Year of the Wolf, and today we've received the latest one- a hard-hitting collaboration from a few hard rappers, including Bobby Shmurda, Freddie Gibbs and Skeme.
We introduced you to rising Chicago rapper Giftz more than a year ago with his "Nino (Remix)" for which he enlisted a bunch of fellow Chicago rappers on the grind. We then followed that up with featuring Giftz in our 10 Chicago Players From The Underground list.
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib have granted experimental Toronto jazz trio BadBadNotGood permission to remix "Shame," a standout cut from their recent collaborative record Pinata, our review of which you can read here.
Watch the official video for the original track below and let us know how they compare, folks.
Freddie Gibbs is teaming up with producer The World's Freshest for a new full length project, which is due out May 13.
The two have shared a new song from the project today, "G Like That" , which is available as an advance download when pre-ordering the album on iTunes.
Today we've got a new artist on our radar, Noelz Vedere, who hails from the Chi. The rising rapper who is unsigned at the moment is prepping an album for May 20th titled Bittersweet Victory, and he's released two tracks thus far.
