Freddie Gibbs – “Pull Up” (Feat. Young Jeezy & T.I.)

As someone who’s been watching fast-rapping Indiana street-rap hope Freddie Gibbs for the fast few years, it’s great to see him reach the point of his career where he’s teaming up with actual rap superstars.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

If this week’s music videos have anything in common, it’s that many of them are flush with violence and disturbing visions. But my two favorite of the week didn’t have any of that, even though the razor gloves and anthropomorphic horses probably could’ve been freakout material in other directors’ hands. Instead, Perfume Genius and Nat… More »

Madlib & Freddie Gibbs – “Thuggin'” Video

Back in November, the stoner-rap production mastermind Madlib and the virtuosic Indiana tough-guy rapper Freddie Gibbs teamed up for a single called “Thuggin’,” which proved that they two had way better collaborative chemistry than you might expect. They’ve also got an album together coming out, but in the brand-new “Thuggin'” video, Gibbs seems bent o… More »

The 10 Best Rap Guest Verses Of 2011

Even in an era when rappers rarely share studios with their collaborators, emailing in their contributions instead, the art of the guest verse is alive and well. It’s still a point of pride for one rapper to swoop in and steal a track’s spotlight away from another. And that sense of friendly competition is still… More »

Young Jeezy – “Talk To Me” (Feat. Eminem & Freddie Gibbs)

Drumma Boy produces this menacing slow jam from Jeezy’s forthcoming Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition, featuring Eminem and Jeezy’s label signee Freddie Gibbs. With this and the two previous tracks from TM 103 — “I Do” and “F.A.M.E.” — we can’t help but feel a little underwhelmed as Jeezy tries to get back on top. More »

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – “Thuggin'”

The line between Young Jeezy and J Dilla is now that much thinner.

Cults – “Bad Things (Remix Feat. Freddie Gibbs)”

Gangster Gibbs steps into a remix of Cults’ “Bad Things,” a track that Cults actually redid the vocals for so Freddie’s verse made more sense. I’m excited to report that it kind of pays off! Maybe this is part of the hip-hop mixtape Cults’ Brian Oblivion said he wanted to make? More on that later,… More »

Freddie Gibbs & Statik Selektah – “Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away” Video

Earlier this year, the amazingly fluid Indiana mixtape gangsta Freddie Gibbs linked with the talented DJ/producer Statik Selektah to release Lord Giveth, Lord Taketh Away, an EP that they recorded in one day, broadcasting the session on Ustream. Now, director Oliver Whitehouse has made a video for the title track. It’s awfully heavy on confusing… More »

Joker – “The Vision (Let Me Breathe)” Video (Feat. Jessie Ware & Freddie Gibbs)

The title track from Bristol dubstep producer Joker’s debut album The Vision features contributions from singer Jessie Ware and rapper Freddie Gibbs. But of the three, only Gibbs shows up in the video, delivering his double-time verse in extreme close-up. Most of the clip is fetishistic slow-mo footage of a muscular female dancer.

Fool’s Gold Day Off (A-Trak, Araabmuzik, Juicy J, Et Al) @ City Winery, NYC 9/5/11

Though the sound system was never totally en pointe, or though the fact that many of the featured rappers didn’t do much actual rapping, yesterday’s Fool’s Gold day off was a pretty fun scene punctuated by many interesting moments, ranging from bizarre to stupendously entertaining. The day’s events featured sets from pint-sized beat banger Araabmuzik,… More »

Atlanta drug-rap fixture Young Jeezy has been putting out a lot of mixtapes lately, and not all of them are worth your iTunes real estate.
