In a time of growing popularity of trap music we got two great examples of trap tales that greatly differ from each other. Freddie Gibbs and A$AP Ferg each dropped their debut studio albums earlier this summer just a month apart.
Freddie Gibbs is the new Tupac of the stage. He keeps it all the way real, only performs shirtless and basically dares anyone to challenge his sincerity 100 per cent of the time. If that ain’t Pac-esque, y’all listened to too much Ja Rule in the early 2000s. This song goes wild.
Gibbs rolls out another video from his ESGN project, dropping the visual for “The Real G Money.”

The 2013 Governor’s Ball Music Festival had one of the craziest lineups of any Summer music festival. To call it epic would be an understatement. That is until a torrential downpour hit the tri-state area forcing much anticipated acts like Pretty Lights, Kings of Leon, and Erykah Badu to cancel their outdoor performances. Regardless, thousands of fans attended the weekend’s events and most of them left with an earful of dope music and clothes covered with mud. iHIpHop was on-hand to catch all of the weekend’s festivities including performances by Kanye West, Nas, Freddie Gibbs, Azaealia Banks, Animal Collective, Thievery Corporation and more.
