Freddie Gibbs Signs G-Scott To His Str8 Slammin' Label

Freddie Gibbs adds fellow Gary, Indiana native G-Scott to his roster.

Freddie Gibbs has signed fellow Gary, Indiana native G-Scott to his Str8 Slammin' label, also owned by rapper/engineer D-Edge and DJ Roc.

According to a press release, Scott will release his Str8 Slammin' debut Weekend in Las Vegas this spring, and has already dropped its first single "HA$H." Scott is currently a student at Indiana University Northwest, and has previously released the projects Scott Bailey vs. The World and The Michael G. Scott EP.

"G-Scott's word play is what caught my attention. He's very articulate and has very good content. I think he's definitely somebody to look out for in 2012," said Gibbs of the signing.

"He's from the same area we're from," adds D-Edge. "We heard some songs from him one day and have been fans since. He's the best of the new artists coming from the 219. No one will be disappointed and we expect a lot from him."

    the guy who said the pyramid thing is right. Jeezy on Def Jam, Gibbs is on CTE, and G-Scott is on Str8 Slamming...anyways signing with Gibbs could be a good or bad thing I mean Gibbs could blow up anyday now with the publicity hes gettin from Jeezy, and who knows maybe the G-Scott dude is pretty good and maybe he'll be the next to blow. I guess well see...I just hate to see good artist go to waste so lets get Freddie poppin first bc he is a great rapper

      its not being a hater its the truth..the guy has yet to put out any music and thinks he can sign people and put them out..even if it is independent g scott is dumb for signing but i guess you throw someone any type of money and they will sign their name to anything

    Cool. If young blood can make a little cash while getting his name out as well as honing his craft, musically and academically...I'm all for it. The more for Gary, the better. I know D Edge from middle school actually. Cool and good dude. Gibbs is much younger but I am familiar with his people and area he grew up. And YESSIR....come on, you bitch nigga. Calling someone a weed carrier when you have nothing to do with those pussinas you always type in all caps for is beyond unbelievable. Bitch ass nigga. I hope some wild animals rape the shit out of you and finally convince you that your life is meaningliess when you scream for help and no one comes to show. Bitch ass nigga. Anyway, peace to everyone...except YESSIR. Faggot ass.
