Complex did an ill interview with Freddie Gibbs.  He was talking reckless throughout the whole interview, but you can tell it’s just how he genuinely feels.  Below I have some excerpts where he goes in on Rick Ross and talks bout the last fight he got into.  You should really read the whole thing, because he also goes in on a bunch of industry people.  Addresses how his relationship ended with Je “3H” Weinberger, Interscope & DJ Skee.  I definitely gained a lot of respect for Freddie after reading this.  Be sure to cop his Str8 Killa No Filla mixtape.

  • Complex: Switching topics: One of the hottest rappers right now is Rick Ross. One of your recent tweets read: “Who are you? Rick Ross, Big Meech or Larry Hoover? the rap game is like halloween every day?”Freddie Gibbs: [Laughs.] That’s real, man. That dude makes good records, but I just can’t support no bold-faced lying on records. I guess he’s entertaining people. It’s like a movie, like Scarface. He can have that fake lane. I’ll stay in the real lane. We got a non-fiction lane of rap, that’s how I’m looking at it now. So you got that fiction lane over there where they’re doing all them. I do the non-fiction, the autobiography, the real shit. It’s all good. Shit like that just make it easier for me to stand out, and easier for me to put my work in to be highly respected. I’ll never ever fabricate nothing or act like I’m something that I’m not or try to be another nigga. I can’t do that. I just think you gotta respect the streets and respect this Midwest culture. I mean you can’t really trip on him yelling names out. This the same dude that told you he knew Noriega when he first came out, so…Complex: On the flip side of that, does it make it harder for you because it seems like these days if you make good music, people don’t really care whether or not you’re being genuine?

    Freddie Gibbs: Rap’s so fucking watered down right now, you can be a motherfucking C.O., you can kiss a nigga, and as long as you making good music, these niggas don’t give a fuck. With me I’ma make good music, be a man of my word, and live how I’m rapping. It’s a fine line between artistry and authenticity, and I just think that I just combine all of that, and everybody can’t do that. It definitely makes it difficult from a mainstream-radio standpoint, but I can care less. That’s only because these dudes have those machines behind them and those marketing dollars behind them to dress their fake shit up. But I’m not trying to fabricate nothing or dress nothing up to be something that it’s not. I ain’t a nigga with no furs, but I’ve sold a lot of crack. A lot of pills. But I wasn’t that nigga like that. It seem like all these niggas in the rap game trying to tell the boss story when 90% of these niggas was never the boss. I was never no coke boss of my neighborhood. I was a shooter, a corner boy. So that’s the perspective I gotta tell you from. I can’t tell you that perspective with no nigga that live in those million-dollar houses, I ain’t never had that.

    Complex: Talking to you, you obviously don’t seem to have a problem with confrontations. When’s the last time you got in a fight?

    Freddie Gibbs: Shit, that’s a good question. Probably like about a month ago. I wouldn’t even really call it a fight. I just beat a nigga’s ass for coming sideways at the gym out in L.A. at a pickup basketball game. A nigga was playing basketball talking all crazy. I had to knock his ass out. It ain’t really been no fights as of late, it’s been more like lopsided victories. I ain’t really had to sweat too much fighting nobody as of late. At L.A. Fitness, motherfucker was acting crazy. Motherfucker out here get to popping that “bitch” word too much and I ain’t take too kindly to that. Ain’t nobody, man or female gonna call me a “bitch” so I had to show him what a “bitch” was. My granddaddy said, “Don’t let nobody call you a bitch.” In the midst of the game, nigga was foul, and I was talking shit, but I aint call him no “bitch.” Once he did that, he went too far and he had to get his motherfucking face cracked.

    Complex: So you just stopped the game and laid the dude out?

    Freddie Gibbs: Yeah, he was laid out. I mean he was talking shit acting like he wanted to do something, but there was too much blood coming out of his mouth and his nose. So he didn’t wanna do nothing. I hit the nigga and left cause I ain’t gonna sit there and wait for no police activity to start up. I’m on probation for five years-three years now-for felony gun possession in California. So basically I got two gun charges. I got one in Indiana and one out here in California so I gotta keep my nose clean.
