Freddie drops his surname for deep cover in The Valley.
Freddie Gibbs dropped a puzzling new video titled "Lets Make Some Cash" in which he plays an 80s casanova in the mold of Gerald Levert or a slightly impish version of Big Daddy Kane. Bear in mind, Big Daddy Kane is no stranger to euphemistic language, as demonstrated by his 1991 Playgirl Spread, a decision which split fans into factions: one more accepting than the other. Then again, a master of his domain can no wrong when fully invested in his character. Gibbs' transformation into Freddie Kane for one is a splendid tale of seduction, intended for the purpose of his own bemusement, and maybe yours too.
"Freddie Kane" begins his unveiling with his back turned. 808s and a basic symphony fills the air to get the ball rolling. Money signs cloud the screen, a ripple current catches your eye, so to depict time travel. All these effects paint Freddie in a light we've never seen him in. Almost instantaneously we forget the Tupac comparisons, and the inexpressible sigh that comes with his regular expression.
Freddie's new spoof comes off the heels of his latest release, a self-titled project which acts as a preclude for the more comprehensive and perhaps serious Bandana LP. A few of the songs from the album trailer were spoofs as well, namely “Smokin’'That TKO,” and “Bitch You Better Clean Them Sheets.”
