Freddie Gibbs Sounds Off On Lil B And The State Of Hip Hop
Freddie Gibbs isn’t one to mince words. Speaking withComplex.com, the Gary, Indiana rapper elaborated on his previous comments attacking Lil B for naming his album I’m Gay, claiming it was all a marketing tool. Though he disagrees with the Based God’s title, he claims he has no beef with him.
“All that shit was some bullshit, I just called it on that,” he said, recalling his first meeting with Lil B. “And he told me, ‘You know what man, you right. I’m not gay man. It’s love Gibbs, man.’ He thought I was about to dig into him, like do him like my song. But I’m not about to take my time to be dissing this nigga.”
He chalked it up to Lil B being irresponsible with his platform. “Don’t get it twisted, I’m not knocking no gay people or gay-bashing. I just see a young black dude putting a message out there like, ‘I’m gay,’” he continued. “I think that a motherfucker with a platform like that should use that for something other than that.”
As for other rappers like Wale and Big Sean, Gangsta Gibbs didn’t hold back. “That’s some buttfuck rap. That’s a whole issue. I’m saying, you can’t even put these niggas [like Wale and Big Sean] in a category. You don’t know what they fuck they are. I’m a gangsta rapper. That shit is just like if you had a box in here of shit you didn’t want, it was just miscellaneous shit, that’s where you’d throw them niggas. It’s a box of lost and found shit.”
