After a bad experience with Interscope (the man who signed him left the company and he was there without anyone supporting him) and a couple of mixtapes ( “ The Miseducation of Freddie Gibbs ” and “Midwestgangstaboxframecadillacmuzik”, both released in the Summer of 2009) that won him the attention of those following the beats and rhymes scene, rapper Freddie Gibbs is now only a few steps away from finally releasing his first official record. For now, the Gary, Indiana, rhymer is making do with the EP format – his “ Str8 Killa EP ” is a series of eight cuts featuring guests such as Bun B, Dan Auerbach ( The Black Keys), Chip Tha Ripper and Chuck Inglish ( The Cool Kids) over baselines served by Block Beataz and DJ Burn One. This debut EP will be available in stores from 3rd August via the Decon/ Gibbs Family imprint. Those who don’t want to wait until next Tuesday should run to get “ Str8 Killa No Filla ”, an official mixtape with a generous tracklist (21 cuts) which can be downloaded from the XXL website now.
