Freddie Gibbs Makes the Sun Shine All Day on Harry Fraud’s Mixtape (Audio)
There has been a lot to celebrate for Freddie Gibbs in recent months, beginning with his September acquittal of sexual-assault charges. In the months since, he has undoubtedly taken time to embrace his freedom and although he’s been relatively quiet on the music front, a handful of appearances suggest he is far from knocked down. In October, he could be found on the Country Cousins’s Country Kingz mixtape, which he followed up with a November collab with producer Harry Fraud.
“All Day” is featured on Fraud’s new compilation, Rogues Playlist Vol. 2, itself a follow-up to January 2016’s installment of the playlist series. On the record, which samples Alexander O’Neal”s “Sunshine” (a track Heads might recognize from Jay Z’s “(Always Be My) Sunshine,” among others), Gibbs rhymes about the work he puts into the hustle. It’s also a lamentation on the cycle of incarceration many have difficulty escaping from, with Gibbs rapping “them people got you by the nuts when you stuck on the paper.”
Fraud’s Rogues Playlist Vol. 2, also features Action Bronson, Curren$y, Juvenile, and more.
Gibbs Heads can also hear some new material in the form of his appearance on Curren$y’s latest mixtape, 12/30.
