Freddie Gibbs recently chopped it up with Pitchfork for its Selector series, speaking on his upcoming projects as well as delivering a freestyle at the end of the clip.
During the interview, Gangsta Gibbs explained what it was like collaborating with Madlib on their EPs and upcoming album Cocaine Pinata, explaining that he used the project to push his limits as a lyricist.
“The record with Madlib, I don’t think it’s too many gangster rappers out there who could do a record with him like that,” he said. “I think that’s a challenge for me lyrically, just to step into his realm of beats and bring my type of shit to it. Things of that nature.”
The Gary, Indiana native confirmed upcoming projects from Str8 Slammin’ Click, as well as his Eastside Slim mixtape. “I’m working on that. I don’t know how I’ll put it out or when I’ll put it out, but it’s in the works. I’m about five or six songs in it already,” he confirmed.
