Homicidal. Freddie Gibbs with no regard for human life on these Drake/40 specials. His flow alone is a song but he so carefully chooses when to deploy it that it’s still a Best Kept Secret for the Gary Gravedigger. Freestyle session after the jump.
The 90s nostalgia train picked up Freddie Gibbs for a jaunt. The new-gen boom bappers have a way of not dragging the warm instrumentals down with thick lines of poetry, instead Gibbs and Joey make light of time traveling for their flows. Check the street performer video after the jump.
A video from one of the sleeper releases of last Fall Piñata. Freddie keeps his grit at all costs, trudging around in this lo-fi number. He puts a day in his life inside the lens of a trip to Harold’s. That’s terrific metaphor sprinkled with the most times you’ve ever heard the word “b*tch.” At the bottom of the gutter, there’s a story he always finds. Watch it after the jump.
Bobby Capri hits us with this follow up song from his Instant Gratification project. It’s the kind of light-hearted, pitter patter flow that gives Gibbs a great canvas. It turns the uphill climb of rap careers into an understandable work-a-day plot. Check the ambition track after the jump.
Freeway & the Jacka are the latest in a duo series the Philly gangster rapper has formed. His works with JakeOne and Girl Talk, respectively, were solid. Of course his State Property team were the best almost-legends that never were. “Cherry Pie” features Gibbs and singer Jynx trotting through broken ghettoes, singing a hustler song through smoke plumes. Check it after the jump. H/t Miss Info.
This the type a song make you wanna hit someone innocent. In the best possible way. I never knew how excited I’d be to endorse a rapper named Young Thug, and yet…here we are. Gibbs also drops the scene-stealer verse.
