Listen to RichGains’ “7 digits” featuring Freddie Gibbs, Nico Segal & ZZ Ward

Longtime homie, and friend of FSD, RichGains is set to drop his solo debut, Gains, tonight at Midnight. Yeah, you’re gonna get those Gains in just a few hours. But as the world awaits  Gains, we gained quite the exclusive and the final leak from the project titled “7 Digits.” And this is most definitely a seven-figure collabo, as the track features an all-star cast consisting of Freddie Gibbs, Nico Segal and ZZ Ward. Yes, the gang is truly all here.

Throughout Rich’s musical career and journey as a producer, he’s produced extensively for all three artists featured here. In fact, thanks to a recent DJBooth article, I was reminded that I introduced Gibbs to the Blended Babies damn near a decade ago at Funky Buddha Lounge over bottles of Henny Black in Chicago. Time flies.

But Rich has always been the homie and a great comrade in the game, so we’re excited to give you this final release from Gains. He even blessed us with a quote from ZZ that gives us the entire play:

“When I was growing up, I used to stare at the tour buses rolling through my small town and dream about sharing my music with the world. I would sit in my brothers car in Oregon listening to Gangsta Gibbs and eventually I stole the CD’s from him. I became a huge fan of Gibbs and it was such an honor to have him featured on my song “Criminal”, that I made with Blended Babies. I’m even more excited to have the chance to work with him and Gains from Blended Babies again on “7Digits.”

Update: the full album is now available. Stream Gains in its entirety below.

Stream Freddie Gibbs new project ‘You Only Live 2wice’

YOLO? Nah, live is about second chances, and Freddie Gibbs is making the most out of his. You Only Live 2wice is the long-awaited new Gangsta Gibbs project — his first since being released from a prison in Austria. He’s been exonerated, and he’s back stronger than ever.

On these nine new tracks, the bad guy from G.I. takes a laid back approach, while spitting lyrics of fury and opening up about the trials and tribulations of his life over the past year. It’s had its ups and its downs, but Fred is a survival. Here’s to second chances.

Enjoy the opus below.
