Freddie Gibbs Says He's The Most Versatile Rapper Out, Talks Young Jeezy Inspiration

Freddie Gibbs speaks on Young Jeezy motivating him as an artist and being one of the most versatile rappers out.

During an interview with Miss Special, Indiana rapper Freddie Gibbs spoke briefly on Young Jeezy and what inspiration he’s taken from the rapper. Gibbs went on to explain that Jeezy’s ability to turn skeptics into believers is what inspires him the most.

“When Jeezy first hit the scene a lot people really didn’t understand it, but it’s like he made them understand and that right there is motivation for me to do what I gotta do…He motivated thing so I’m tryna do what I gotta do,” Gibbs explained.

Gibbs also spoke on his recently released Cold Day In Hell mixtape and being “the most versatile rapper in the game” in his opinion.

“I just dropped it when I was ready, that’s what I believe in. I don’t believe in deadlines or dates. I literally was like recording up until the last minute,” said Gibbs. “Probably like two or three days…I think I’m the most versatile rapper in the game. People see it like the guys I do songs with. I can do songs with just about anybody and we can make something work.”

Lastly, Gibbs revealed his plans on either hopping on the remix to Random Axe’s “Chewbacca” or working on a separate project with the rappers.

“I’m gonna do it. I just been on the road. I just got off the road with Jeezy. I been tryna plant my flag down everywhere. Milk my nigga though. Milk, Guilty…so when we get around to it we gonna do that shit or do something fresh,” the rapper explained. “Whatever happens first, but I definitely fuck with them. Shout out to Hex.

    Freddie gibbs one of the only new rappers I have any respect for..... I respect that Yelawolf kid too but I'm just not feelin his music as much, But Gibbs gets the cosign for sure because he always says what on his mind and dont go run and apologize everytime he gets called out like the rest of these new jacks Cold Day In Hell is a banger by the way, check that out if you havent, closest thing to old school southern gangsta rap your gonna get nowadays, if you like old school Scarface or Eightball & MJG, you gotta be feelin Gibbs

    Don't know whether he's the most versatile or not but he's probably the best rapper that's come out since the 90's. Doesn't have a gay flow, covers different subject matter, stays on beat etc

  • dope

    He wasn't saying Big Sean was to versaitle, he was saying WHAT THE FUCK KINDA OF RAPPER IS HE? and he was right, him and Wale are both like in no mans land in terms of rapping styles, i don't even know what kinda of rapper they them selves want to be. Reagrdless, the guy is an amazing MC but he sounds like a complete moron when ever he doesn an interview,the less we from this guy the better, it's shit like that makes people not take you serious and you lose credibilty.

  • dj nemesis

    actually, since I listen to Gibbs on the Cults remix, he jumps on other genres and raps whether they are conscious rappers or trapstars or up and coming or vets, no matter what region. he does it all, fast or slow. He gets played in the clubs and also he performs in shows like the Pitchfork festival, which shows he got diverse fans. Search Joker's song The Vision ft. Freddie Gibbs, he goes in on a total Grimey UK producers beat. then listen to him on that Cult's Remix of Band Things. Amazing, just to see what he can do. i don't like saying someone is The Best, or rank rappers in lists. but Gibbs is definitely up there as one of the most polished emcees out there now. this site already had a dope article about how Freddie Gibbs. too bad he is not on TM103,

  • Kanye West
