Butta and Freddie go hard on this one. No question. Last week, Butta blessed us with the Mp3 and today we get the official video. “I Go” is a dope pairing from two distinguished artists repping the Middle of the Map. G Fool Beatz handled the production.
Gangsta Gibbs gets busy with LA-based producer, Hanni El Khatib, for this new single from the upcoming Converse CONS’ CONS EP VOL. 3 . Hanni handles the backdrop (naturally) while Gibbs assassinates the beat as he’s known to do. This “Satin Black” is top quality material.
Produced by G Fool
Butta and Freddie have collabed a few times in the past, most notably a couple of years back on
2012’s “Work.” Well, the “Work” continues with this 2015 shot, “I Go.” And these two definitely go hard on this one.
Check these two beats getting busy yet again. Go and listen to “I Go” below now, and keep an open eye for the video, which was filmed yesterday on location in Chicago.
Directed by RUFFMERCY. Produced by Salva and Nick Hook.
Thugger Thugger, Gangsta Gibbs and Fergenstein’s collaboration comes to life in the official video, which Mass Appeal just liberated. This joint serves as the first offering from the upcoming Mass Appeal compilation, but you can grab it on Salva’s Peacemaker project now.
Workin’ that woodgrain wheel.
Hit Skrewface enlists the help of his ESGN brethren Gangsta Gibbs, G-Wiz and G.I. Fleezy for “Grippin’ Grain,” the newest single from Hit’s new Hitsville USA Vol. 3 project.
Give “Grippin’ Grain” a listen below and check out Hitsville USA Vol. 3 on iTunes.
This is pretty damn hot. JMSN slows it down and brings Gangsta Gibbs along for the ride. And they clear out the block like a “Street Sweeper.” This is the official remix of the record, and will likely appear on JMSN’s forthcoming album Blue Album, due out on 12/9. Happy Holidays, indeed.
Remember back in July of 2013 when we had some pics/footage of Freddie Gibbs and the living legend Mike Dean in the lab working on some top secret material? Of course you do. The good news is that yesterday it was announced that one of the songs from their sessions was going to appear on the soundtrack for GTA V for PS4 and Xbox One (gamer talk).
Even better news? You don’t have to wait on the game to drop to hear it, as Gibbs just let it leak out. Do some dope below — and yes, we say yes to this kind. Enjoy.
Today, BJ announced his new project The M.A.F.E. Project via Noisey, and also gave them a new joint from said project, the Gangsta Gibbs-assisted “B.A.M.” This one is dedicated to the baddies of the world — wherever you are. “B.A.M.” was allegedly recorded during the sessions for MadGibbs’ Pinata album. Just an FYI.
Terrible news coming out of NYC this morning, as the NY Post is reporting that there was an attempt on Freddie Gibbs’ life last night after a concert in Brooklyn. Allegedly after Gibbs show at Williamsburg’s Rough Trade, a gunman approached his black GMC Denali and fired shots into the truck. Thankfully, Gibbs was not injured, but two others, including his DJ were:
Two people were shot in a trendy section of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, early Tuesday, in what was purportedly a rap beef.
Hip Hop musician Freddie Gibbs, who just performed at a record store called Rough Trade, claimed he was the intended target when shots were fired at 1:13 a.m. while he was sitting in a black GMC Denali at North 9th Street near Wythe Avenue.
Gibbs’ crew had barely rolled one block away when the gunman – dressed in a dark hoodie – ran up to their ride and fired several shots inside, the rapper said.
“They tried to kill Tupac. They tried to kill me,” Gibbs told The Post outside the club. “I’m still alive.”
Asked why he would be targeted, Gibbs said: “I’m Freddie Gibbs. They tried to kill me, but I’m still alive.”
