Freddie Gibbs Says He Is Better Rapper Than Young Jeezy
Exclusive: The Gary, Indiana-native also discusses his upcoming Madlib collaboration, "Cocaine Pinata" and reveals plans to release sequel to "ESGN."
Freddie Gibbs spoke about his fallout with Young Jeezy yesterday (December 9). In an exclusive conversation with HipHopDX during the release party for E-40’s Block Brochure: Welcome To The Soil 4, 5 & 6, Gibbs said that part of the reason why their business relationship soured was because the CTE frontman is less talented than him.
“Jeezy, he can’t rap better than me,” Gibbs explained, before comparing Young Jeezy to a washed-up professional basketball player:
“That’s why the nigga was afraid. He wasn’t ready to be in boss mode. He still wanted to be in rapper mode. He’s like a nigga in the NBA that’s about to retire and [is] on his last leg, while a young nigga like me is just killing niggas. I’m like Paul George on these niggas right now. He’s on his last leg so I’ma go ahead and kick the nigga in the grave while he’s standing on the edge.”
Gibb’s comment comes one day after he took to Twitter and hinted towards plans to release a diss track aimed at the Atlanta, Georgia-based rapper.

Freddie Gibbs also spoke exclusively with DX about his upcoming Madlib-produced release, Cocaine Piñata as well as the follow up to 2013’s ESGN.
“Cocaine Piñata is going to show y’all niggas that I rap the best,” Gibbs said. “That was just me going in the studio with Madlib, fucking around and showing you niggas I can rap the best, because if I can rap over that, I can get on any other beat and crush you.
“My next shit, ESGN 2,” he continued. “All I gotta say about that is, I just did a rehearsal with Alchemist for the whole week, so you already know how that shit’s gonna turn out. I was at rehearsal with Alchemist and Oh No for the whole week. Me, Alchemist and Oh No [are] about to get into the lab. So that Devil’s Palace shit is still fucking coming. That shit is an urban legend. Don’t forget about that, now…2014 is mine, nigga.”
Freddie Gibbs first began speaking about Devil’s Palace in late 2009 prior to the release of his Str8 Kill No Filla mixtape. Reportedly, the project was intended to be a collaborative EP with Alchemist. In a 2010 interview with HipHopDX, Gibbs stated that Devil's Palace was initially delayed because the two could not schedule time to complete the release.
Freddie Gibbs attended E-40’s Block Brochure: Welcome To The Soil 4, 5 & 6 release party at Los Angeles nightclub, Tru Hollywood. Notable attendees included Warren G, Krizz Kaliko, Glasses Malone, Gary Payton, Mistah FAB, Donovan McNabb, DJ Vlad, Steve Lobel, among others.
