Freddie Gibbs Confirms Receiving Death Threats Following Young Jeezy Fallout

Freddie Gibbs refers to Young Jeezy as "a fraud," says the rapper has led fans on for the past 10 years.

The falling out between Gary, Indiana rapper Freddie Gibbs and CTE founder Young Jeezy continues, with Gibbs sharing his latest thoughts on Jeezy with MTV News. The ESGN rapper even spoke on receiving death threats via Twitter following the various comments he made about the former Boyz N Da Hood member.

Additionally, Gibbs referred to Jeezy as a “fraud” and expressed his sympathy for fans who he says have been “buying in to” the rapper for the past decade.

“Yeah, death threats. Death threats,” Gibbs revealed. “It’s a lot of people—Aye man, I know it hurts you to hear your favorite rapper’s a fraud. It ain’t my fault. It’s something you been buying in to for the last 10 years. I know it breaks your heart, but I got to break it to ya.”

The falling out between Jeezy and Gibbs first occurred when Gibbs left CTE late last year. Shortly after his departure from the label, he began to speak on the reason behind the move citing differences with Young Jeezy and also stating that it was not an “amicable” split.

Gibbs further commented on his differences with the CTE leader who he says provided nothing but “fake and empty promises.”

“I messed with it. That was the music I was vibing to and I wanted to add to it, but it was just a lot of like—I started seeing the fake and the empty promises and all of that stuff,” said the rapper. “And I just didn’t want to be around it no more. You know what I mean? It’s a whole lot. It’s a book worth of stuff that I could go into, in them two years that was I was there. That I saw. Thing that’ll make you look at your favorite rapper in a different way.”

Despite Gibbs’ vocalness on the matter, Jeezy has remained relatively silent. A statement from Jeezy dating back to December of last year referred to the Midwest spitter as “a talented artist” and wished “him the best in his career.”

Freddie Gibbs is currently preparing for the release of his ESGN album, which is due out on July 9.

    Gibbs is better than Jeezy

  • The truth

    Here's the deal... Jeezy got a distribution deal with Atlantic a few months back(Rick Ross got one the same week, shows how " real" they're supposed " beef" is, constantly in the same building...). The same day Jeezy got his deal, Feddie Gibbs leaves CTE. Coincidence? Hell no! I believe that Gibbs didn't leave CTE, he was DROPPED! I believe that getting rid of him was a stipulation of Jeezy getting his distribution deal.

  • mygod

    this reminds me of the joe budden and jay-z sitiuation. jay didnt know how to push joe so he bounced and dissed him. i never heard of the nigga gibbs before jeezy. and if stays out of the interviews i probably will never hear from him again. and i fucked with gibbs. c what u get for tryin to help an ungrateful muthafucka

    freddie gibbs is a loud mouth pussy. twitter snitch faggot. jeezy did more for him than hes done for himself. and hes gonna cry about it. gangsta gibbs is a little bitch. talk tough on twitter and when youre getting intereviewed by nerd "reporters" who think rap is worth covering on this kinda level. gibbs is not a star he's wannabe.

  • Chi-Ill

    So when he was with the camp, it was all real and good. He got no Album release and not with the camp anymore, so now he a fraud?!

  • d-nucks

    I always felt Gibbs going to cte was a bad move. But let this be a lesson to upcomming rappers....stop looking at other rappers and think if you sign with them that you would blow. You have to look at a labels track record and resume before you sign. Some cats get cauht up...and just see the artist...jeezy, Ross, Ti, jay-z and really don't make an educated descision on who they should sign to. Take that chick Oliva...for instance...that was a dumb ass move signing with g-unit. She got caught up in the 50 cent train. But why would an RnB artist sign with a label who sepcialized in releasing gangsta rap? Just dosen't make sense. And with that said, Gibbs should have noted Jeezy's track record...as far as releasing artist...IT SUCKS...i would have never sign with dude. Gibbs would have been better off..going with, rap alot...he should have tried to get with J-PRINCE...or somebody...i think he could have help place dude in the right situation

  • ThatUncutRaw

    To me, it just sounds like dude is complaining about his album not coming out. It doesn't sound like he's dissing his "street cred", while he's definitely trying to tilt it in that direction. I too think it looks bad on him for airing this shit out all over the place. Whether or not it's true, it just looks bad. I'm not saying it's right to get screwed after signing to someone; that's wack. But he's making himself look even worse by crying about it.

  • Mac

    Gibbs is a snitch nigga.year ago he attempted gaining fame from ross and jeezy's beef and still on that.i just hope ross and jeezy work together again.shame on gibbs, let your music gain fame for you not beefs,if you continue that,you aint gonna last long in the hiphop history

  • Egyle

    even though what the man says is most likely true, it rings a bit sour to me when he uses it to push album sales or whatever. why does he have a need to talk shit anyway?

  • Former jeezy Fan

    Gibbs is right Jeezy is fuckin fraud. Nigga was never BMF or sold crack. Nigga is living in fantasyland like Rick Ross

  • Kizman

    hope these two don't continue with this beefin shit. they need to sort it out coz their 2 of the realist rappers in the game

    i like that bdk mixtape but all of sudden u part ways with cte n now jeezy a fraud...u was sign to him so wat that makes u?

  • Greg Mac

    I like freddie gibbs dude has had some bangers but to me cte was not the right move for him. As of right now the only label really pushing their artist is MMG. Those guys are constantly putting out albums, mixtapes , videos and doing shows. You can hate Ross's character but not his drive for his artist. Even lesser know people on MMG still get to be on albums and videos and do shows of the strength of being in MMG. Thats why i never understood why Pill left and did all that Bitching now his career is non existent. Jeezy is a great artist just not a great label boss.

    • Greg Mac

      You are right from a technical point Pill was never signed to MMG on paper. Yet he still repped them and algined himself with them. Think all the covers, BET chypers and tv apperances he was right there with his chain on and all. Also when he didnt pop he didnt go after Warner whose idea it was he went after Ross. So he was technically MMG. But as far as masspike miles and magazeen them guys are trying and i give ross credits he put them on albums his albums, gave them videos and they do get shine for the mmg logo. Every artist isnt going to blow thats just facts but as long as the boss tries there should be no complaints.

    • Anonymous

      "On February 4, 2012, Rick Ross spoke about the departure of Pill from Maybach Music Group and revealed that Pill was never actually signed to Maybach Music Group. Pill was already signed to Warner Bros. prior to Maybach Music Group and it was Warner executives who proposed the idea of Pill joining. Ross says that they worked out a one-year deal, were Pill would be part of the team and after the year was up, it would be up to Warner Bros. Records to decide if he stayed or not." ^ no shots but some of us are paying attention

    • Da bIG Homie

      I Think you half some valid points about both cte and gunit but i disagree about not signing with rappers. Alot of those artist you named have found success J.Cole Gold album Platinum single , Wale Gold album , Platinum single and a grammy nomination, Meek Mill , MGK or French Montana not the greatest album sales but all have Gold or Platinum singles and sell out shows. Yet the difference is all these guys flood the media and keep themselves relevant enough for a label to push them just like Ace Hood. Gibbs needed a better work ethic and media buzz he was kinda of boring.

  • Money First

    I like Gibbs as an artist but as a man you gotta stop blaming others and step up. As others have said on here Jeezy has not released anybody's music on his label to any success. You are not the exception to the rule...Go where there is a track record of wins not losses!!

  • Sco*

    CTE has NEVER released an album that was not a Young Jeezy album, NEVER! No Slick Pulla, No 211, No JW, No Roccett, No Blood Raw, and No Boo Rossinni......What did Gibbs expect, to be the exception to the rule? CTE=Label Graveyard. Sign at your own risk.

    Freddie Gibbs reminds me of 90's hip hop more than J Cole and Kendrick Lamar. I hope Gnagsta Gibbs and Jay Electronica were more popular.
