Hip-hop and house highlights

Hailing from Indiana, Gibbs is one of the most promising, potent and original lyricists and samplers in hip-hop today. 

Taking inspiration from the likes of 2Pac, Biggie Smalls (The Notorious BIG) and Warren G, Freddie first made a name for himself following the release of a series of mix-tapes – which are still available online.
Collaborating with some of the most left-field, high profile names out there – including the eclectic rapper and producer Madlib, Asap Ferg and Danny Brown – Gibbs is one huge talent worth spending your ears on.
