Here comes the pain…

Freddie Gibbs does what he wants. You do what you can. That being said, Gangsta Island’s own Gangsta Gibbs has unleashed two brand new joints out of the blue. Two freestyles, that might actually be freestyles, but sound like actual songs. Album material, for sure.

“Dead Presidents” and “Hot Boys” is what he’s calling them, but nah, he’s not rapping over any old Roc-A-Fella or Cash Money beats. This is all original material. Sid “Speakerbomb” Miller did “Dead Presidents,” while Dupri of League Of Starz handled “Hot Boys.” Find both below, and be sure to thank Fred when you see him.

In The Studio: G Herbo with Young Chop, Mano, C-Sick, DJ L & Thelonious Martin

Fresh off his first headlining domestic tour, G Herbo returned to Chicago to break ground on his official still-untitled debut album. Not a mixtape, not a ‘street album’ — the real debut. And last night, Herb hunkered down alongside some of the world’s best producers — who just so happen to reside in Chicago.

Herbo, and Machine Entertainment Group honcho Mikkey Halsted, were joined by the likes of Mano, Young Chop, C-Sick, DJ L, Thelonious Martin, Deezy, Tapez and more at an undisclosed studio in the Chi to break ground on the album. What started off as a production meeting turned into a full blown session, with the room of likeminded talents serving as a braintrust for Herb and the album.

Beats were picked, ideas were tossed around, and I’m told the creative energy was out of this world. Take a look at this picture — this is a very big deal. They’ve assembled quite a team for this one, so I’m expecting nothing but greatness. Rumor has it a few joints have already been completed, and it’s sounding astounding.

We’ll keep you posted as more details become available to us, but just know that big things are on the horizon for this one. Color us excited.
