Freddie Gibbs has been on a tear of late. Aside from sending a warning shot at The Game, Gibbs has been keeping busy on the musical tip, dropping off a few Madlib produced-Bandana singles to tide fans over. In true Gangsta Gibbs fashion, the rapper continues to outbar a vast contingent of the game, while remaining surprisingly under-the-radar in many discussions. Still, that simply emphasizes his rise to cult-like status, and those in the know will continue to keep a watchful eye on his movement. Today, Gibbs has teamed up with producer Nuez for "Avirex," a lyrical reflection on Freddie's illicit past.
"Often don't trust who I'm fuckin with," raps Gibbs. "Nine times outta ten I lost I friend was on some sucka shit, n***as shady please be careful who you say you brothers with." An authority where matters of the grind are concerned, Gibbs is cut from the same lyrical cloth as legends like Raekwon, Ghostface, bringing eloquent depictions of streetlife through which we can all live vicariously. Protect Gibbs at all cost, the man has much to offer.
Often don't trust who I'm fuckin with
Nine times outta ten I lost I friend was on some sucka shit
N***as shady please be careful who you say you brothers with
