6. Freddie Gibbs – Baby Face Killa
Gibbs should win an award for having the most consistent string of mixtapes over the past three years. From the Miseducation to Midwestgangsta to Str8 Killa to Cold Day In Hell, all of his joints jam from front to back. Big production, big hooks, big features, and big rhymes. One of the best things about Gibbs, is that his flow never grows tiring, because he’s consistently switching it up. Rarely does one song sound like the other – and he sings many of his own hooks. The features are always unique, and better than the standard fare, carbon copy posse cuts were accustomed to nowadays.
Gibbs carried on tradition with BFK, proving his ear for beats is stellar (finding unknown producers); and he can sequence an album like a pro. Jeezy lost a good thing with Fred’s departure.
