So, Cults are re-imagining their debut LP as a hip hop mixtape (proof). They started with “Bad Things”, one of my favorites from the album, completely rearranging the track and adding 2 verses by Freddie Gibbs. The result is wonderful things. Hypetrak premiere, below.
You would expect a Hood Internet track with Freddie Gibbs + The xx to be a mashup called something like “F*ck The VCR”, but this is actually a [sort of] cover of xx’s 2009 fav featuring original verses from Freddie Gibbs and Telli of Ninjasonik, and Elizabeth Harper of Class Actress on the chorus. Recorded [...]
“Our hearts are heavy, our hearts are dark” reads the press release for Self Scientific’s Trials of the Blackhearted. Rapper Chace Infinite and DJ Khalil join forces for an 8 track freebie that features appearances from Talib Kweli, Freddie Gibbs, Big K.R.I.T., and The Game. “War Stories” with K.R.I.T. is streaming below, and his verse [...]
The return of the real? “Fallin’”, the extremely nice iTunes only bonus track featuring Freddie Gibbs from Statik Selektah & Termanology’s 1982 collaboration album (which is also extremely nice), is below via OS. 1982 is still streaming in full here. “Fallin’” by Statik Selektah & Termanology feat.

Above, some cool visuals to go along with Freddie Gibbs’ 1 and a half minute jam, “Serve Or Get Served” (produced by Statik Selektah), from his mixtape, Str8 Killa No Filla. The clip is directed by NYC’s DanTheMan, and features the Empire State Building as green and red.
Cool Kids, Black Keys, Str8 Killas, and others NSFWing on Freddie Gibbs’ “Oil Money.” Str8 Killa EP is out now on Decon. (NR)
I’ve been revisiting Freddie Gibbs’ gritty “National Anthem (F*ck the World)” a few times a day since the no filla official video premiered last week. The Gary, Indiana rapper put out the Str8 Killa No Filla mixtape last Thursday, and is set to release his debut EP this week via Decon Records. Above, Yours Truly [...]
Freddie Gibbs makes a bold statement in the official video for the lead-off single, “National Anthem (F*ck the World),” from his upcoming debut, Str8 Killa EP. The EP is due August 3 on Decon Records. NSFW. Like the shirt says; Brilliant.

Filmed in Freddie’s hometown of Gary, Indiana, the track and video put a [...]
