Video: Freddie Gibbs – Freddie Gordy

In Hip Hop by Sam Conley

New Freddie Gibbs

Last year, Gary, Indiana gangsta rapper Freddie Gibbs dropped his Shadow Of A Doubt album. Towards the end of this project was track “Freddie Gordy”, probably its most heartfelt and introspective offering. Chronicling the contradictions of Freddie’s lifestyle, his history of substance abuse and his lost friends, “Freddie Gordy” showcases Gangsta Gibbs’ incredible lyrical ability over a rolling trap instrumental.

Following Freddie as he walks the streets of The Bay Area, the video ends with Freddie visiting a memorial to close friend and fellow rapper The Jacka, who tragicallt was shot dead in East Oakland at the beginning of last year.
