Hailing from Gary, Indiana, a place whose murder and crime rates have ranked it several times at the top of the “MostDangerousCities” list,Freddie Gibbs is the true definition of a street survivor. Raised on Gary’s east side, Gibbs lived the hardlife firsthand ina run-down industrialcommunity plagued with vice and ignored by the establishment. After playing at BallState on a footballscholarship, Gibbs was kicked out ofcollege. Over the next few years he went through court-ordered bootcamp, joined and gotdischarged from the military, and held down a series of9 to 5 jobs without success. Feeling like thesystem had failed him, Gibbsturned to hustling; pimping and selling crack out of a local house.Inspired by rappers like UGK,The Geto Boys and 2Pac, Gibbsstarted rhyming about his life and the issues facing urban youth in Gary and thecountlessother impoverished cities just like it.Gangsta Gibbs is the first rapper signed to a major label from Gary. The Steel City’s mostfamousmusical residents to date are theJackson Five, whose name still adorns a marquee on a falling-apart theater in Gary’sblighted downtown. Hisdesire to rep theMidwest and his city led Gibbs to start recording mixtapes and pushing them online aswell as the streets, where he quicklybegangarnering fans drawn to his original style, diverse flows, and deeply personal lyricsabout his experience as a young black mangrowing upbelow the poverty line in a forgotten American city. Freddie has workedwith respected producers like Red Spyda, JustBlaze, Buckwild, Alchemist,Polow Da Don, and Collipark among many others.Gibbs cites Houston rap and Pac as his majorinfluences, and it shows in his ability to alternatebetween chillingly tense streetstories of violence and laid back comedic talesabout women and weed. Ultimately Gibbs shows and proves with hisrhymes,which demonstrate the promise of a legend in themaking. His skills, wit, and street credibility establish Freddie Gibbs as atrue artist. He’sready to represent for Gary, the Midwest,and anyone who relates to the struggle of inner city life. As Gibbstells it: “My music is definitely onsome gangsta shit. That’swhat I was raised on and what I witnessed. How can I speak onanything else?” “Become a fan now, or become onelater.” « hide
