If you don’t know the name already then get to know it now: Freddie Gibbs. Not your typical rapper’s moniker but Freddie ain’t your typical rapper!
Born and raised in the Jackson’s hometown of Gary Indiana his distinctive sound and incredible flow have been causing a real stir on the underground scene for e a while now since the realease of his 2004 debut mixtape. Such a sitr in fact that he is now signed to Young Jeezy’s label working on a full length project alongside legendary producer Madlib which includes ‘Thuggin’ which has been blowing the internet up since it the video dropped.
Listing his influences as Scarface, UGK, 2Pac & Ice Cube he is already showing the skills in portraying the struggles and dreams of street life to match many of his heroes and is going to be one of the real names to watch in the next couple of years as the underground takes over.
As ever Freddie will be made to feel right at home by the residents line up London has to offer in the shape of Spin Doctor, Mr Thing, Chris P Cuts and our host MC Prankster.
