Freddie Gibbs & Curren$y to drop EP together in 2017

tempnp

After years of solid collaborations, Gangsta Gibbs and the Hot Spitta are making things official — and they’re sealing the deal with a joint EP titled, Fetti, which is due out at some point in 2017. Curren$y took to IG earlier today to make the announcement, which included a hilarious video of Gibbs manning the slopes on snow skis. It’s even better than you’re envisioning in your head right now. Good to see Fred living life, though. That’s the real.

Said Spitta:

Called my homie Gibbs and told him it’s time lets put the EP together… Homie hit the slopes and sent me this hahaha clearly its a green light haha…. “fetti” the EP coming in 17″ …. Spitta and Gibbs that pistol to ya ribs ….. Peep how cold he is on the skis tho haha that’s commendable @freddiegibbs

Now I’m not holding my breath for this EP to actually come out, but I will keep my fingers crossed. It’s safer that way. Let’s hope this planned project doesn’t end up in the graveyard of abandoned ideas.

Gibbs has been laying low since his release from an Austrian jail a few months back. It’s only right. After that type of evil being inflicted, you gotta regroup and reboot. But due trust big things are on the way. Be patient.

That said, some unreleased Gangsta Gibbs has surfaced today. This one is “Overtime” and features both Young Buck from the G-Unit clan, and Hit Skrewface from G.I.

Not sure what this was recorded for, but Traps-N-Trunks just released it as part of their new compilation album. Either way, it’s fresh. Listen up below.

Hopefully new Gibbs is coming sooner than later.

Freddie Gibbs emerges with new music, “All Day” produced by Harry Fraud

Produced by Harry Fraud

Whoa! This is the first piece of intellectual property dropped by Gangsta Gibbs since being acquitted of rape charges overseas a few months back. Thankfully, he’s back out and spending time with his family. We’re not sure if this was recorded before he went overseas, although it seems likely, as he doesn’t address anything here. Whatever the case, this joint is absolutely en fuego, no matter when it was recorded.

Harry Fraud is one of my favorite producers, so it’s great to hear him and Gibbs over this smooth-as-leather instrumental. Perhaps there’s more on the way from these two? Either way, we’re riding for this “All Day.”

Freddie Gibbs Acquitted of Sexual Assault Charges In Austria

Gangsta Gibbs is coming home! How’s that for good news?

Per Freddie’s manager Lambo and Noisey Austria (who came through with the pic above), Fred has been acquitted of the sexual assault charges and rape allegations that he was facing in Austria.

Stay tuned for more updates in the coming hours.

Updated with statement from Attorney: 

“Today, September 30, 2016 Freddie Gibbs was found not guilty. We have always maintained unconditionally and without any doubt that Freddie would be and now has been fully exonerated and completely vindicated. We are pleased and thankful that the Court recognized the same trust and confidence we and all of his fans have had in Freddie that justified and resulted in his absolute acquittal. Immediately after his acquittal I spoke with Freddie who expressed his deeply sincere, heartfelt gratitude and thanks to his fiancé Erica Dickerson for her unwavering support, for the steadfast and incomparable loyalty of his long time friend and manager Ben “Lambo” Lambert, for the extraordinary work and effort of his lawyers and for the overwhelming outpouring of love he has received from his fans. He says, “Thank you!”

While we are appreciative of the verdict of not guilty, nothing has changed. The actual facts have always demonstrated that Freddie was and is 100% innocent. It is now self-evident he was wrongly accused. The trial has confirmed our belief that after a searching and complete investigation and trial the true and actual facts would be revealed – that there always was an absence of any scientific, physical, or credible evidence that would warrant in any way such an accusation.

Freddie and his family look forward to returning to the States so he can resume his life and career.”

Freddie Gibbs Has Been Charged With Sexual Assault In Austria (Update)

Screen Shot 2016-08-06 at 12.51.28 PM

Update: Freddie Gibbs has been released on bail. His attorney released the following statement to Complex: 

“Freddie Gibbs was released today on bail. We believe this is the first step toward his eventual exoneration and vindication. We are pleased and thankful that the Court recognized the same trust and confidence we have in Freddie that justified his release. Immediately after his release I spoke with Freddie who expressed his heartfelt appreciation and thanks for the overwhelming outpouring of support he has received. Yesterday’s charge remains only an allegation, and it does not in any way change the actual facts that Freddie Gibbs is 100% innocent. As he has done with his bail request, he continues to pursue every available means to demonstrate that he is absolutely innocent and that he has been both belatedly and wrongly accused. As the investigation and process continues, Mr. Gibbs remains hopeful that a thorough, searching and complete investigation will reveal the actual facts, including the absence of any scientific, physical, or credible evidence implicating him, thereby paving the way for his exoneration and return to his family and one-year old child. In accordance with Austrian procedure Mr. Gibbs has not as yet had the opportunity to provide the authorities and the Court with the substantial and compelling exonerating evidence that he has compiled. Through counsel Mr. Freddie Gibbs has consistently remained fully cooperative with law enforcement offices and judicial systems in both France and Austria and will continue to do so.”

Original story from 8/17:

Freddie Gibbs’ overseas arrest and rape allegations have taken another turn today, as the rapper, who has been held in Europe since June, was formally charged with sexual assault in Austria. He is charged with drugging a woman’s drink and then sexually assaulting her. He is facing 10 years if convicted.

Says Reuters: 

“He is alleged to have administered knock-out drops to a woman and then have abused her sexually while she was in a defenseless state,” a spokesman for Vienna’s criminal court said, referring to drugs used to spike a person’s drink.

The alleged incident occurred backstage in July last year.

Gibbs was charged on Tuesday with “sexual abuse of a defenseless or psychologically impaired person”, and if convicted faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, the spokesman said.

A Vienna-based lawyer for Gibbs, Thomas Kralik, said his client had neither abused nor had sexual contact with the woman, and that he had yet to be formally notified of the charge.

“He strenuously denies (the accusations),” Kralik said, adding that Gibbs also had nothing to do with the woman’s drink being spiked.

A U.S. lawyer for Gibbs, Theodore Simon, said in an emailed statement: “While Freddie Gibbs was charged with an offense today, it remains only an allegation, and it does not in any way change the actual facts that Freddie Gibbs is 100 percent innocent.”
