Things are looking up for Freddie Gibbs, as he is preparing to go on tour in Europe. Following his success during the summer of 2011, many are waiting to hear his debut album. Freddie Gibbs has released several mixtapes, most notably A Cold Day in Hell. Aside from his collaborations with artists from the West Coast, Freddie Gibbs has been relatively silent.
Nearly a year since he first rose to stardom, Freddie Gibbs has returned to the headlines, first with his tour and now with his new mixtape. DJ Drama’s Gangsta Grillz mixtape series has built many superstars in the rap game. Among the rappers to experience success through the Gangsta Grillz series include T.I. and Young Jeezy.
While Freddie Gibbs has a bit of a higher profile than T.I. and Young Jeezy when they first teamed up with DJ Drama, working with him does not hurt. In the midst of making several moves, Freddie Gibbs announced, via Twitter, he had a new Gangsta Grillz mixtape in the works.
