Workin’ that woodgrain wheel.

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.”
Gangsta Gibbs connects with producer Salva (“Old English”) once again and this time around, they’re ready to get their pimp on. “Magic” flips Psychodrama’s classic of the same title and even features a verse from Psyde FX of the group.
This joint comes to us via Salva’s Peacemaker LP, which also features guest appearances from Ballout and Tadoe and is available for streaming right here. Listen to “Magic” below.
Following the release of the “Knicks” remix yesterday, MadGibbs return with another offering from the forthcoming Knicks Remix EP. “Home” features BJ The Chicago Kid and is yet another solid collaboration from Gibbs and BJ. You know, I wouldn’t be mad at an EP or full project from these three.
Give “Home” a listen below the jump and remember — the Knicks Remix EP drops November 18th.
Freddie Gibbs and Madlib enlist the help of Action Bronson, Ransom and Joey Bada$$ for the official remix of “Knicks”, which originally appeared on MadGibbs’ Piñata LP. The “Knicks” remix will appear on the Knicks Remix EP dropping November 18th through Madlib’s Madlib Invasion imprint.
And yes, this is just as dope you imagine it to be. Listen to the “Knicks” remix below via Pitchfork.
Gangsta Gibbs sat down with Jack Thriller of ThisIs50 for a new hilarious interview, where Gibbs speaks on ESGN Records, smoking with Diddy, his Lord Fredrick tour, Tupac and much more.
Check out the full interview above.

First thing’s first: props to Curren$y for flipping that Down South Hustlers cover. If you’re not up on the Down South Hustlers double disc, I suggest you take it back to 1995 and check it out when you have a chance.
That being said, on this dope Jet Life compilation that dropped just moments ago, there’s an amazing Gibbs record featuring his ESGN family. This is some super smooth rider music. Fresh melodies and Big Lurch samples. Two thumbs up on this one. Grab “Dollaz” below and the full Jet Life tape right here.
