Introducing Freddie Gibbs

Guys like Freddie Gibbs are saving rap.” — Tom Breihan, Pitchfork

Gary, Indiana (aka Chicago’s outer inner city) product Freddie Gibbs has yet to make an “official” release, but that hasn’t stopped him from dropping two disturbingly good mixtapes over the past few months.  Originally signed with Interscope, he spent time in the studio recording many of the tracks that make up the tapes with accomplished producers before leaving the label.

Both are worth a full download and carry some serious weight.  And if you don’t believe me, check out the rest of what the Pitchfork review has to say here.

Full mixtape downloads, select track downloads, as well as streaming tracks & videos after the jump…

The Miseducation of Freddie Gibbs (full download) – Gibbs’ first mixtape released in 2009.

Must listens:

midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik (full download) – Gibbs’ followup mixtape, you can read his own track-by-track break down here.

Must listens:

Other tracks have leaked in advance of an anticipated third mixtape… stream & download “I’m That Ni&&a”, “The Wrong One”, and “Crushin’ Feelin’s” for more from Mr. Gibbs.  Even more, a video for a new track with Mikkey Halsted came out last week (Acker, check out the skyline!).
